BS Zelda: Inishie no Sekiban

I believe I held off on doing the obvious and apparent long enough, eh?

Partial Translations, ROM Hacks, and even the soundtrack are available for this one. Therefore, it’s only logical that the videos should be shown to the world as well.

So, fans, here we go! For non-fans, who don’t know what I’m talking about, I’ll start off with the first video before my description;

Yes, this looks like LTTP, but different. This is BS Zelda: Inishie no Sekiban, the Satellaview’s follow-up to the acclaimed Super Famicom game as well as it’s followup to the previous BS Zelda they released.

(NOTE TO ROM USERS: You will probably find ROMs and the like as “Kodai No Sekiban”. As you can hear in the videos, that is not the proper pronunciation of the title…I’ve made another blog post further detailing the confusion surrounding this.

The standard ROMs do not work on any emulators. Not even ones with better BS-X compatibility. If you want to play the games, your best bet is the BS Zelda Shrine’s hacking project. Unfortunately, I’m not talented with ROM hacking, so I can’t tell what’s up there.

From what I’ve heard from fellow ROM hackers Mottzilla and Con, it’s generally believed now that the original ROMs were trying to call some data that was not stored in the ROM data or in the BIOs, but rather data that was temporarily downloaded. This might be what leads to the issues.)

For the above video, watch along with reading Berri’s translation, currently in-progress. It will give you an understanding of the game’s plot, changed gameplay mechanics, and more.

Of course, that video doesn’t look very complete now, does it? Well, here’s two more then! These together make up Inishie no Sekiban’s 1st Episode.

And now for the original NicoNicoDouga Links:
