Lady Sword (PC Engine) an unlicensed Dungeon Crawler gets translated

Lady-Sword-Fan-TranslationWe can't refuse another fan translation! Another game to add to our long backlogs of unfinished games. Lady Sword is a unlicensed PC Engine dungeon crawler RPG with a rather interesting twist of confusion and mild  'adult' themes.

For those reading at work, please take care before clicking any further links as this game has links with Hentai. Whether pixelated versions of in-game women count as NSFW, we would rather be safe than sorry.

Lady Sword was released by Hacker International in 1992, an unlicensed game for the PC Engine. It is often referred to as one of the worst games ever made, however some people seem to feel there is a bit more too Lady Sword than meets the eye. We are yet to play the translated version ourselves, however an unavoidable love for other dungeon crawlers such as Etrian Odyssey on the Nintendo DS leaves us rather curious about this release. 

The translation patch has been posted up on the project page over at RomHacking. An original clean ROM of the game will be needed to play the game in English.
