This is a website devoted to Phantasy Star II. Some people say it’s one of the best 16-bit RPGs, with an incredible story that got mangled in localisation. All good and well, but how do we know it’s true? People have a habit of romanticising foreign languages and assuming their own can’t contain the full greatness of the original version. If you could compare it for yourself, you would be able to know, instead of just taking anyone’s word for it.

To that end, I have uploaded a literal translation of Phantasy Star II, provided by my lovely wife, who speaks Japanese well. I have also included the original Japanese script. I couldn’t find it anywhere else online, and it makes it easier to double-check us, if anyone wants to do that.

This project is now completed, as of the 4th of November 2020.

I have also made a patch that puts this script into the game, which you can download at a link above or below.
