Destiny of an Emperor II: Game Versions

Destiny of an Emperor II: Game Patches and Versions Explained

You are here: [ Home –> Games –> Destiny of an Emperor II –> Game Versions ]

Destiny of an Emperor II shares the original Destiny of an Emperor’s incredible popularity—especially in Japan, where the game was released in a language they could read. Thanks to Magic Destiny, all the fun of Destiny of an Emperor II is available to the English audience as well! But in addition to these two versions of the game, two more have been hacked together, entirely by fans. A story based on a Wei perspective, where you start with Cao Cao, and a story based on a Wu perspective, where you start with Sun Jian. We have created this page to differentiate between them, and introduce them all to you.

An Introduction to Emulation

Emulation can be a daunting subject—especially for someone that hasn’t ever really considered the possibility of playing old video games on their computer. Still, it is a very real, and very fun, aspect of modern computers and the internet. In addition, it is the only way you can enjoy certain games that were never released in your country, and the only way to play old games for that system that died on you six years ago. In an effort to get you started, we have written an Introduction to Emulation which you can read. Beyond that, we recommend asking in forums such as Scholars of Shen Zhou (don’t ask for ROM files we don’t feature here) or searching the internet for more knowledge.

Destiny of an Emperor II: Original Japanese

The original Japanese release of Destiny of an Emperor II. This is where it all started. A wonderful game which was never released by Capcom in English. Much like Destiny of an Emperor you begin the game with Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei, and commence with an epic struggle as you strive to unify China under the new Han Dynasty, Liu Bei’s Shu-Han.

Destiny of an Emperor II: Patched English

Online translation group Magic Destiny (formerly Destiny Translations) took on the daunting task of fully translating Capcom’s Destiny of an Emperor II to English. It took some time, but in the end, the task was done, and an IPS Patch was released which could be used to convert the Japanese characters in Destiny of an Emperor II to English for the rest of us.

Destiny of an Emperor II: Patched Japanese Wei Version

Why learn how to hack and translate a game ROM if you don’t do anything with the knowledge? Japanese translators, wishing to present Destiny of an Emperor II from a Wei kingdom perspective, created an IPS Patch (game conversion) for just that purpose. And don’t misunderstand, it isn’t simply a character swap. It features a unique storyline, and even some unique game elements and surprises. Sadly, it is only available in Japanese.
