Dont really have much to say here… but I’ll try anyways.
First, Ys V was originally released by Falmcom in 1995. In 1996, Falcom released a second version of the game for the Super Famicom with a higher difficulty level, known as Ys V Expert.
Second, the RPG-style statistical elements and the overhead view of most of the previous games are retained in Ys V. However, the combat system has been changed again; the player now must press a button to swing Adol’s sword and attack enemies. Adol is also given the ability to jump and defend with his shield in Ys V.
This game spent many years as the sole entry in the Ys series never to have been seen in English, in any form, and for good reason; the process of hacking this game has been a nightmare and has been plagued with dozens upon dozens of crashes. Said crashes were crippling to the motivation to work on the game, but the translation is now done. Enjoy!

Works but ...Reviewed By: Badboykilla187 on 23 Jun 2019
This fan translation works as expected on the original version of ys5 for snes from 1995 but as far as I’m aware it doesn’t work on the expert version of the game released a year later in 1996. In that version of the game it freezes at the falcom splash screen but this was on the snes9x EX+ emulator on android 8 so be careful you probably can’t play the harder version of Ys5 in English but your experience might be different on another emulator/OS or on a real super Nintendo
Version 1.00 Recommended - No
