Japanese Exclusive Nintendo Game Boy RPG 'Wizardry Gaiden III: Scripture of the Dark' Fan Translated

Wizardry-III-Fan-Translation-ReleasedOver the last year talented ROM hackers have been hard at work to gift Western gamers access to the Japanese exclusive Wizardry Gaiden series on the Nintendo Game Boy. Those hoping to tackle these hardcore text-heavy adventures can finally rejoice as yet another title in the series has finally been fan translated.

Now joining Wizardry Gaiden: Suffering of the Queen and Wizardry Gaiden II: Curse of the Ancient Emperor in English is the third outing in the series, Wizardry Gaiden III: Scripture of the Dark. Very much like its predecessors, Wizardry Gaiden III (better known as Wizardry Gaiden III: Yama no Seiten in Japan) features text-heavy action accompanied by the tried and tested role-playing battles we all know and love. While the slow-paced gameplay may not appeal to everyone, the Wizardry series is without a doubt worth exploring should you be a fan of the genre.

Fan translator and ROM hacker Tangyi_Chang has released this English fan translation patch for Wizardry Gaiden III on ROMHacking.net to sit aside his two previous efforts. This good news is also followed by the promise that a fan translation is also set to arrive for Wizardy Gaiden IV in the near future.

As usual, to enjoy this fan translation patch you will need to have an original Wizardry Gaiden II: Curse of the Ancient Emperor Nintendo Game Boy ROM file to which you can apply this patch to. Full instructions on how to patch this ROM can be found within the download, or you can refer to this handy ROM patching guide on YouTube.
