Description
Game description from Romhacking.net:

Alright. First, let me warn you: this game will make little, if any sense if you’ve never watched Ranma 1/2 before. If you haven’t, I will take this opportunity to direct you to Viz Video’s Website and order you to sign over your entire bank account to them in exchange for every Ranma video. Also, there’s plenty of websites out there that can manage a fairly decent job of explaining the whole series. I’d explain it here, but it’s way too complicated to fit in this review.

Anyway, the game itself is like any old-school RPG. The gameplay is much like anything you’d expect to see in Dragon Warrior or Final Fantasy, except with a lighter atmosphere (it IS Ranma, after all…). Hell, this game is better than many RPGs released in the States (Secret of the Stars springs to mind), and it never got translated. I could never understand that. Rumicsoft had no problem translating the crappiest fighting game ever (Ranma 1/2: Hard Battle), but they wouldn’t give us a quality RPG. Or any of the Ranma fighting games that were actually good. Which is really weird because even by the time this game was released, there were plenty of Ranma fans who’d buy anything with the Ranma name on it. And on top of that, there were plenty of RPG fans, too. In case you didn’t know, Snes RPG fans are the most loyal and dedicated people on the planet. It’s true, they’d go into EB or Software, Etc. and buy anything that said ‘RPG’ on the box. (I should know. I was one of those losers.)
