A revised translation patch has been released for the Famicom version of Jesus: Kyoufu no Bio Monster (or Jesus: Tale of the Dreadful Bio Monter), a text heavy adventure/RPG that involves a mission to a space station known as J.E.S.U.S. to investigate a returned Halley’s Comet, which is headed towards Mars with some form of life inside.
The game was developed by Chunsoft, a popular Japanese developer who was responsible for many of the earlier Dragon Quest games. In fact, Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama worked on the soundtrack. Originally released in 1987 on the PC-88, MSX and FM-7, the game was brought to the Famicom in 1989. Enix released a sequel in 1989 for the PC-98 in 1989, followed by an X68000 port in 1991.
While a translation patch was released five years ago, authors Pennywise and Niahak decided to revisit the game to clean up a few things. They claim that it’s an almost entirely different experience.
