Great game!
19 Nov 19:07 2017
I'm creating a set for this game.
21 Nov 18:07 2017
Nice! Really looking forward to this one, though I still need to beat the NES version first :P
1 Dec 4:45 2017
This set is now live. If anything fails to trigger or triggers out of place please don't hesitate to message me.

To anyone wanting the patch, it can be found here: http://www.dqtranslations.com/projects/dragon-quest-3-remix-snes-translation-projectApply it to the Japanese game and it should work.
3 Dec 14:53 2017
I have version 1.1 of the translation and it doesnt seem to work. Is 1.0 required ?
5 Dec 12:44 2017
This was made for translation version 1.1.
12 Dec 13:42 2017
Wow, thanks, your timing couldn't have been possibly better! Just one question: Are there any achievements I should look out for when playing through this for the for the first time, or is nothing missable?
12 Dec 15:41 2017
I just started the game, but for some reason, it still thinks it's the japanese version (game 2820) instead of this one. What am I doing wrong?
12 Dec 15:43 2017
I'm using the translation 1.1
12 Dec 17:59 2017
Renamed this game to "Dragon Quest III", renamed and unlinked the 1.0 version. Hopefully, this fixes certain emulators not recognizing the achievements.
12 Dec 18:15 2017
Yeah, I'm 90% sure that you can simply link all 1.0 versions to this and they'll work fine. I linked a couple and did some testing and everything acted as expected. Please put in a bug report if anything fails to trigger or triggers out of place.
6 Nov 23:06 2018
I added patching instructions from J to E translation in the top post of the forum
