  • New history
  • Intro and ending scenes
  • In-game scenary extended and modified
  • New enemies

  • New music composed by Japanese chiptune composer DRM
  • New audio system that offers PSG, combinad with SCC and FM

This turn-based RPG is compatible with all MSX models with at least 16KB of RAM. The profits of this and other games go to AAMSX, and it will enable them to organize future users meetings. Nerlaska will be present with a stand to present and sell this brand new Monster Hunter. If all this isn't a reason to pay this fair a visit, then nothing is!

Cool, it looks very polished. I have not tried the MSXdev version yet. Will this be an SCC cartridge (with the sound chip)?

No, it doesn't include SCC chip inside, but it can use a SCC chip placed at any other slot.

I prayed the godess hundreds of times, I have felt her presence and help.

Better: I prayed to the goddess hundreds of times and felt her presence and help.

Apart from the Spanglish : a very nice and complete game! I'm really curious about the new features!
