Glory of Heracles IV - Milestone English fan translation for an EPIC SNES RPG

I was wondering when the next Romhacking special would appear especially towards Christmas, and sure enough here comes another English translation, and this time it's for the Japanese game ' Glory of Heracles IV ', or the proper name Heracles no Eikou IV: Kamigami Kara no Okurimono. Now translated by the Nightcrawlers Translation Corporation (Nanashi), this is an EPIC JRPG with a deep story and gameplay that blends Greek mythology, the story of Pandora’s Box, and the quest for eternal life with similarities to the Dragon Quest games.

Romhacking has noted this is a milestone in the fan translation community as it completes the last entry in the Glory of Heracles series. "As such the entire series is now available in English, So, you can expect established styles and conventions to carry over. It is a rare treat to be able to do this for multiple fan translated games in the same series". Furthermore, this fan translation is a high achievement with over 200 possible sub menus translated and adjusted... For further information about the game and the translation please see the links below.
