Japanese Exclusive Super Nintendo Strategy ‘GalaxyRobo’ Fan Translated Into English

Galaxy-Robo-Super-Nintendo-Fan-TranslationIn 1994 Copya Systems released a detailed strategy title for Nintendo’s 16-bit platform which drew inspiration from the likes of Fire Emblem and Famicom Wars. Despite the turn-based tactical warfare gameplay being rather impressive, GalaxyRobo remained a Japanese exclusive Super Famicom release - one which has since been fan translated into English.

Featuring the much loved mech-style story and visuals, GalaxyRobo was one of the select games on the platform to make use of the Super Nintendo Mouse. With cursor based precision and control over your units, turn-by-turn you’re tasked with moving your mechs and taking down the opposing force. Those colliding or in range of projectiles will find the game switches to a side on view to show the damage dealt to each force.

Despite being near identical to its inspiration from a gameplay point of view, GalaxyRobo is without a doubt worth a looking if you’re a fan of the genre. Dynamic Designs have released their fan translation patch for the game which can now be applied to a legally obtained GalaxyRobo Super Famicom ROM. Full instructions on how to play GalaxyRobo in English can be found within the download.
