After what seems like ages, Crimson Nocturnal has finally completed the much-anticipated English Translation Patch for SaGa 2: Hihou Densetsu–Goddess of Destiny, a Nintendo DS RPG (Role Playing Game) that was released on September 16, 2009 in Japan (and which was never localized in the US). It’s an RPG game that was released and develop by Square Enix Japan and is actually a remake of an already existing game.
If you haven’t heard of the SaGa games, chances are you might have heard it under its predecessor and the SaGa games that were released years before under the name: Final Fantasy Legends. This particular game, SaGa 2 is indeed a remake of Final Fantasy Legends II.
The story in Final Fantasy Legend II revolves around MAGI, the shards of a shattered statue of the goddess, Isis. The Hero is awakened by his father, who explains he has to leave for a while. He then makes his way through the Hero’s open window. Years later, the Hero decides to set out to find his father, and eventually joins a fight involving new gods bent on taking over the world and the Guardians, an organization dedicated to the protection of MAGI and to keep it from falling into the wrong hands.
The player visits twelve distinct worlds, in addition to the Celestial World and the shrine at its center. The goal of the game is to collect the varied pieces of MAGI scattered around each of these worlds. These MAGI pieces can also be equipped by your characters to increase stats or grant special abilities. Of course, in the NDS version, a lot of things had been added and enhanced while still maintaining the core of the story.
Now, Crimson Nocturnal (who have, as I said, been working a long time for this patch) had given this the title of SaGa 2: Legend of the Relics–Goddess of Destiny. If you already have a dump (ROM) of the game and want to play it in English, then head on over to Crimson Nocturnal’s site to download the patch, or you can go the easy way and click here to download it.
Now, if you don’t have the ROM then this link is for you. It’s an already patched NDS ROM and all you need to do is extract the game and put it in your flashcart. If you experience any problems (bugs and the likes) then just drop me a line or send a message directly at Crimson Nocturnal.
