Pretty Solider Sailor Moon: Another Story (a.k.a. Sailor Moon RPG) is an RPG by Angel; released in 1995 in Japan for the Super Nintendo. The game carries the same humor and action that we all love from the Sailor Moon anime. The storyline takes place after the 3rd season of Sailor Moon. You'll see many references to the Queen Beryl saga, the Wise Man saga, the heart snatcher saga, and others. Around September of 1999, the unofficial English translation was completed by Bishoujo Senshi Translations. This means the only way you can play the English version of this game is through SNES emulaton on your computer. An English SNES cart does not exist, so please stop e-mailing me where to find one!



Instead of MP there is EP; everyone's maximum EP is 12. There are several items you can use to refill EP. Everyone's EP is fully restored after every battle. The EP-restoring is great for normal battles, but its 12 EP limit sucks during boss battles, you have to keep on restoring it yourself using your precious EP-restoring items. The combination attacks are known as double techs and triple techs. Techs only use up the character's turn that you choose the tech with. They don't use up the turns of other characters who participate in a multiple tech attack. When you select Defend in battle, it really does defend! Your defense goes up like 90%-95%. Don't forget that if you choose a multiple tech and one of the characters involved with the tech is stone, charmed, or selfish then the tech will not work.



Each time you start in a new area you must build up your the levels of your character(s)! Enemies start out very strong! Luckily, your characters gain strength quickly as they gain levels. Even though multiple techs seem like they're stronger - most aren't. Sometimes a character's single attacks are stronger than multiple techs. Sometimes using the 1 EP-2 EP attacks are stronger than attacks that use a lot of EP. Don't hold back with healing items! You'll really need them when you're building up levels. Sailor Moon and Chibi-Moon can morph to super versions. Both of them have a single super attack in these forms. However, they lose their original set of techs for that battle.



If you love Sailor Moon, then you will definitely love this game! The battles are fun, the attacks are so cool and the storyline is so interesting. And the Sailor Senshi talk in battle! When they get hit they scream in their real Japanese voices! When they do their special attack they say it in their real Japanese voices! When they attack their war cry is said in their real Japanese voices! That's a pretty amazing feature when you consider that Tales of Phantasia is the only other SNES RPG with characters calling out every attack. The graphics are okay and the music is alright. What I like best about the game is how closely the storyline is to the show. It also changes around the origin of Queen Beryl and her loyal generals with an interesting twist. However, RPG-wise, Sailor Moon RPG is terrible. I mean, all the bosses do pretty much the same thing! Their sequence of attacks is like this: attack, attack, attack, special attack that doesn't affect anyone, attack, attack, attack, attack, special attack that doesn't affect anyone, attack, etc. The challenge is awkward. Each time you enter a new area the enemies are ridiculously strong, then after leveling up some your characters overpower them big-time, making the game ridiculously easy. The battle encounter rate is annoyingly high. Overall, I'd recommend Sailor Moon RPG only to fans of the show and devoted RPG fans.

Here it is, although you still need to track down an emulator.

As reluctant as I am to admit it, I wasn't really big on this game last time I played it: the enemies seemed overpowered and a lot of the story seemed like you needed to actually watch the show up until the very point in the continuity it was set to understand it. Probably good for the die-hard fan but for a casual fan it didn't really appeal.

I am thinking about giving it another try once I'm done playing catchup, though. Serves me right for completely failing to do anything involving such a great series for over ten years!

I feel the same way you do, Dusk. It's what fueled me to make my own RPG that could be more easily understood by anyone, not just Sailor Moon fans.

That's a good philosophy to work with, Chains. I'm glad at least one developer understands that much.
