Dragon Slayer - The Legend of Heroes (PC remake version)

Postby ObiKKa » Wed Oct 11, 2017 5:00 pm

It was very hard to find any concrete information on the specific PC version of the first ever Legend of Heroes game (Or 6th in the Dragon Slayer series) from Nihon Falcom. Ditto for any ISO file of this version online.

It was released on many Japanese PC platforms then consoles (eg. Super Famicom, Megadrive and actually had the only localization for the US market on the TurboGrafx-CD. Then there were the poor remake versions on PSX/Saturn.

But I found through this game's wikia (Not the wikipedia page) that the Windows version was released on April 25, 1997. I also found out through a XSeedGames' forum thread named "Guide To The Legend Of Heroes Series" that this was a Windows remake :!: and was called "Shin Legend of Heroes" :o , which is certainly impossible to find information about anywhere else. Ahhh! :cry:

Additional note: A small team is working on an English fan-translation patch for this game and waiting to integrate a good translator into the team. So that should give more impetus for anyone to search for and find this game box/disc and back it up to this website.

Here's what I have found from an overseas software releases list of PC games by Nihon Falcom under the 'Licensee List' tab on their website:

- IBM-PC release in Korea: Came from "MANTRA / SAMSUNG" (The same firms did the PC releases of the following 3 "LoH" sequels.)
- IBM-PC release in Taiwan: Came from "TAN TON NERW INFORMATION" (They have also released PC versions of the following 3 "LoH" sequels & a number of other games including Brandish; Revival Xanadu 1 & 2; and Lord of Monarch [Original & Pro editions].)

Bingo! You can find overview pages for both this game and sequel at UVList.
