|So since Steppolo Steppi has been working on those translations for Soul Blazer and Illusion of Gaia, I figured now would be as good of a time as any to throw this out there.
Most of us are familiar with the Retron 5 at this point, and that it's a decent way to play old games on a modern display, though there are several superior alternatives. What you may NOT know is that you can load patches onto an SD card and load them while playing.
This essentially means that Japan-only releases like Seiken Densetsu 3 can be played in English. Or that you could grab your copies of SB, IoG, and even Terranigma (if Steppolo does that one too) and load Steppolo's .ips files to play them all with the new translation.
Anyway, I'm definitely planning on doing this myself once I have time.
