Japanese Exclusive Super Famicom RPG ‘Super Shell Monsters Story’ ROM Fan Translated Into English

Super-Shell-Monsters-Story-Fan-Translation-PatchOriginally released back in 1994, Super Shell Monsters Story (also known as Daikaij? Monogatari) was a Japanese exclusive adventure for the Super Nintendo published by Hudson Soft. Although proving popular enough to see its very own manga series, the title never left the Far East - at least until now. ROM hackers have finally released a patch for Super Shell Monsters Story which translates the entire game into English.

Known for being yet another clone of the Dragon Quest series, Super Shell Monsters Story finds our trusty hero venturing out to tackle the great Demon King Fattobajah. Having arisen in the wake of natural disasters sweeping the planet, this great evil must be brought to an end in an attempt to save the people of Shelldorado.

The game itself features the much loved town-down perspective of classic JRPGs, with a traditional turn based combat system to compliment it. Visually speaking the game features some nice sprite artwork and a distinctive style, all of which feels like a re-made Nintendo NES adventure.

For those interested in battling through another obscure JRPG then look no further. The English fan translation patch for the Japanese Super Shell Monsters Story SNES ROM can now be downloaded from Dynamic Designs.
