Japanese Exclusive Nintendo Famicom RPG 'Shadow Brain' Fan Translated Into English

Shadow-Brain-Famicom-Fan-TranslationShadow Brain is a First Person RPG Dungeon Crawler title for the Nintendo Famicom that was only released in Japan back in May 3 1991 by Pony Canyon - who were also involved in games like Ultima I-IV and Super Pitfall. The game plays very similar to Shin Megami Tensei (NES) and is one of the few games of this genre to be available on this console. Nintendo NES/Famicom RPG fans out there will be pleased to hear that Shadow Brain has been recently translated to English.

Originally, Shadow Brain was sold with a VHS tape detailing the story behind the game. The translators from romhacking did a good translation from the VHS tape and it’s included when you download their translation patch from their website. The game has a Sci-Fi story behind it, decent graphics and nice music. Shadow Brain seems like a very solid alternative to Shin Megami Tensei fans out there and should not be missed by enthusiasts of this genre, if you get a chance to play it feel free to leave us a comment below!

You can find Jorge sitting in his multi-tasking chair doing evil stuff - like watching his cats fight to death, attempting to finish his ever growing game collection, pretending to be a writer and graphic design enthusiast, and every now and then actually working like all us boring adults usually do. Given how he just started a family, his son is now learning the way of the pixels, slowly but surely.
