Rent A Hero is an action RPG released for the Sega Mega Drive (known as the Genesis in America) On September 20, 1991. Emphasizing on over-the-top humor, it was released exclusively in the Japanese market.
The gameplay of Rent A Hero can be described as an Overhead RPG, combined with 2D-based fighting segments, rather than turn-based combat that was common in RPG’s at the time.
You control Taro Yamada, an average teenager who receives a battery-powered suit on complete accident when he orders pizza at his family’s house-warming party in the fictional town of Corja. Discovering the powers the suit gives him, combined with a monthly rent to keep the suit, Taro decides to become Rent A Hero, a hero who will save the day…provided that he is paid.
Spanish translation for Rent a Hero on the Sega Megadrive, this work is based on the one released by NickDC that was itself a continuation of the work started by Paul Jensen, RedComet, and many others.
All script and many of the graphics have been localized and proper Spanish punctuation symbols were added to the font.
This patch also translates a string that was left in japanese on the original release, when the titular Rent a Hero steps in to cover for a missing actor on a theatrical play.
