Oh the Super Famicom, home to a plethora of untranslated and inaccessible RPGs and adventures. Luckily enough, ROM hackers have been hard at work over the years translating these long lost quests for English speaking audiences. Takara's 1996 release, Arabian Nights: Desert Spirit King, is the latest to have been deciphered.
Also known as Arabian Nights: Sabaku no Seifuku Ou, this fairly obscure titled developed by a small studio known as Pandora Box very much deserves the worldwide recognition it never got.
The Arabian themed adventure starring Shukran, an adventerous girl in possession of a ring harbouring Ifrit the King of the Djinns, sees the two embark on a quest to bring around world peace. With stunning graphics, a compelling battle system and an engaging story, it comes as a real surprise that this hidden gem never saw an official English Super Nintendo translation.
