The game's very kanji-heavy, and there's a lot of written text, so unless you know at least the very basics (like どく = "poison" or セーブ will save the game) or have a translation guide by your side, you may have a hard time figuring out the things (the game alone's pretty straightfoward, so I doubt you're going to have any problems with progression. It's mostly "go there or talk to this guy", or simply finish a dungeon, to open a new location at the world map screen).

The game was ported to PlayStation, but it features lower-res textures, washed-out colours, even more framedrops and a pretty bad English dub (and it's also available on PSN) - there's always an option. I also remember one guy trying to rip the English text from the PS port and inject it into the original Japanese Saturn release, but he didn't go far, sadly. :( It's really a damn fine piece of jRPG, shame it was never released for the Saturn in the west.

Ok thanks, I'll prolly give it a try then, the jap version is dirt cheap anyway so if it turns out to be unplayable it won't be a big loss :lol: :mrgreen:

Definitely worth a try, I scored a complete mint copy (even with the spine card) for 9,99$. :D

Yeah I know, and you can still find a Prima strategy guide for 10 also...
