Default Translation Release: Madara



After a more years than I care to remember, http://agtp.romhack.net/Aeon Genesis</a> has finally released a complete translation patch for Madara on the NES. It's a decent game, with a superb soundtrack and some excellent cinematics; it's quite the technical feat for the NES, and the hacking work is absolutely top class. There are no known issues, so share and enjoy!

The plot revolves around a foundling babe whose arms and legs were chopped off, eyes gouged out, ears removed, throat cut out, and even his heart removed. The elder of Niso Forest, Tatara, fashioned mechanical replacements for the child's missing limbs, and named it Madara. Fifteen years later, the Moki generals who stole Madara's body parts have begun to overtake the Fuduraku continent, and Madara must journey forth to recover his real body, and in the process, his real strength, eventually to combat and destroy the evil Emperor, Miroku, who leads the Moki.

(ZD stuff: Japanese to English translation, NES, complete, hopefully no future updates and all that garbage.)

Holy crap this game has a good soundtrack. I haven't even tried playing it yet, I just grabbed the NSF file, but I think this is maybe the most impressive accomplishment I've ever heard coming out of the NES.

Nice work, Gideon. I'll be sure to give this one a try.

Yes... Madara has probably the best music to ever come out of a NES/FC. Followed probably by Gimmick!.

I have been wanting this translation for a long time! Excellent work Gideon and crew! <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

I got lost, the world is so big. Trying to find a map was unsuccessful.
Very easy to walk into territory where the enemies pwn you.

from IRC:

&lt;sarencele> Psst, someone tell Ghideon that I think he overwrote part of the DPCM drum data in Madara. That is all.

&lt;Disch> I knew some tracks sounded funky when I played it! That explains it



I first noticed it when I went in a general store. You can hear a sort of fuzz in the background. At first I thought it was a bug in my emu or something, but after Xod said that it clicked.
