Famicom Exclusive Debias: Legendary Space-Time Hero Translated

Nintendo-Famicom-Exclusive-Debias-Legendary-Space-Time-Hero-TranslatedROM hackers are at it again, bringing us yet another previously unavailable in English title to add to our long list of games to play. Namco's 1987 Castlevania / Zelda II styled RPG; Debias: Legendary Space-Time Hero (More commonly known as Jikuu Yuuden Debias in Japan) has finally been translated for the Nintendo NES.

Prior to this fan translation very few have enjoyed Debias: Legendary Space-Time Hero, making it one of the more obscure Nintendo Famicom exclusives. Offering the perfect blend of a RPG combined with a side scrolling platform adventure, this is one of the many titles you'll be left wondering why it wasn't localised.

Given the obscurity mentioned above, there is just one gameplay video on YouTube of the game in action. Our apologies for the 'humour' in the video, however it's worth checking out to see the (untranslated) game running.

Seems loosely relate-able to Faxanadu (ファザナドゥ) for the NES as well. Thank you for sharing. =)
