Japanese Exclusive Nintendo Game Boy RPG 'Wizardry Gaiden: Suffering of the Queen' Fan Translated Into English

wizardry-gaiden-suffering-of-the-queen-game-boy-english-translation-patchIn 1991 the Nintendo Game Boy saw a successful role playing series make an impressive transition to the pocket dimension. Wizardry, more commonly seen on home computers and best known for its challenging and deep adventure gameplay, made its début on Nintendo's handheld in Wizardry Gaiden: Suffering of the Queen - a quest which was previously exclusive to Japan until now.

Also known as "Wizardry Gaiden: Joou no Junan", this role playing title features incredibly text-heavy gameplay accompanying your valiant quest into yet another dungeon. Whilst this menu driven text adventure may not be everyone's cup of tea, it's very hard to dismiss the Wizardry series given its clear influence on the likes of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest.

Fan translator and ROM hacker Tangyi_Chang of ROMHacking.net recently released an English fan translation patch for Wizardry Gaiden: Suffering of the Queen, allowing those who happen to have this Game Boy ROM to hand the ability to enjoy it in English. According to the patch's readme file, fans of the series will be pleased to know that Wizardry Gaiden 2 is planned for translation next.
