Japanese Exclusive Nintendo Virtual Boy SD Gundam Dimension War Fan Translation Patch Released

Japanese-Exclusive-Nintendo-Virtual-Boy-SD-Gundam-Dimension-War-Fan-Translation-Patch-ReleasedWith just a tiny library of 14 English language releases and 8 Japanese exclusives, Nintendo Virtual Boy fans have found themselves having to make do with what's on offer. The small count of English friendly titles, however, has grown by one as the incredibly rare strategy title SD Gundam Dimension War has been fan translated.

SD Gundam Dimension War was released exclusively in Japan by Bandai in 1995. The game's small print run and exclusivity has since seen it become one of the most desirable Virtual Boy games around, reaching insane prices on the likes of eBay. SD Gundam Dimension War plays out in a similar way to that of Advance Wars on the Game Boy Advance, commanding troops on a grid based battlefield, however, the Virtual Boy title has you fighting out the one on one battles yourself.

The newly released fan translation patch for SD Gundam Dimension War finally brings the entire game to English audiences. Those with the elusive Nintendo Virtual Boy flash cartridge, the FlashBoy, will be able to enjoy this patch on the original hardware. Should you not have access to a FlashBoy though, this Japanese treat can be played on a Virtual Boy emulator.

As usual, to enjoy this fan translation patch you will need to have an original ROM file of the game in 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.
