Subject:Angel's Present saves
Posted by:_velfarre.
Time:8:42 pm.
I was playing Angel's Present via an emulator before, but when I got a new PC I forgot to back up my saves (like an idiot). I was hoping someone here had also emulated it and might have a save with all the chapters unlocked so I can go back to where I started. Anyone?

Subject:Official Japanese sites
Posted by:jumpyham.
Time:3:01 pm.
Mood: busy.

Hey there! Got some more goodies! ^_^

I was surfing and came across the official Japanese NIS site:


And, from there, I was able to access the Japanese sites for all 3 Marl games!

[Cut for links]Collapse )

PPOMK: http://nippon1.jp/consumer/marl_kingdom1/ [I'm warning you, don't use Google Translate to read Marjoly's page. It's not nice! >_<)

Little Princess: http://nippon1.jp/consumer/marl_kingdom2/

Tenshi no Present: http://nippon1.jp/consumer/marl_kingdom3/

BONUS! The sites for Marl Jong and Marl de Jigsaw!

MJ: http://nippon1.jp/consumer/marl_jan/frame.html [The Japanese characters for this site are all screwed up, though, so you can't translate it >.>. You should still be able to access some of the features, though.)

MDJ http://nippon1.jp/consumer/marl_jigsaw/ [This site has some wallpaper downloads. Go nuts! You can also find some Fansite links, which is pretty cool. Wish the American branch of NIS was this cool.]

On the Nippon site, you can also find a full list of games that Cornet and Marjoly have appeared in. Pretty useful, huh? ^_^

Subject:Princess Antiphona Soundtrack Review!
Posted by:jumpyham.
Time:4:16 pm.
Mood: creative.

I finally got my hands on a .zip folder of the soundtrack, and I've got a review up!


You fellow Marl-heads will be pleased to hear that are two songs that were redone just for this soundtrack that could also be heard in Rhapsody/Little Princess/Angels Present! :D Those two songs are "The Legend of Puppet Princess" and "Sabato" [Song of the Majoligal Faith]! 
Also, a little fun/useless fact: One of the vocalists on this CD is named 'LaLa Sato'! She has no relation to Tenpei, though.............

More information and a tracklist here:http://www.squareenixmusic.com/albums/a/angelscore.shtml

Subject:Angel's Present video
Posted by:_velfarre.
Time:2:56 pm.
Hi guys, been a while since I've posted here but I'm coming with goodies so I think that makes up for it. I've been playing Angel's Present on my computer through PCSX2, because I've just now got it to where it's actually playable (last time I tried, half the sprites wouldn't show up). However, the cutscenes with voice acting (and to a lesser extent the other cutscenes) lag kinda bad, so I've decided to start using the emulator's built-in video recording function to just record them and watch them after-the-fact. The emulator will record games at the proper speed whether or not they play on your machine at that speed.

So, since I already had the video, I decided to take the time and use the translation that already exists to make this video. I had to use punctuation and intuition to figure out what bits were what, so I can't guarantee the subtitles match up to the dialogue on screen correctly, but either way it's at least understandable. Here it is:


Since Chapter 3 is the one I wanted to play the most anyway, I will probably be doing this with all of the cutscenes. I can't promise I can take the time to subtitle all of them (we'll just have to see), but I do plan on at least putting up the footage of all of them for this chapter. Hope someone out there enjoys it!

Hey everyone,

I don't know about anyone here at the Marl Kingdom/Rhapsody community, but I first played Thousand Arms before hearing about Rhapsody from Atlus USA back in the day. I've been posting pages of a special comic manga I started translating and wanted to share with anyone who might be interested in giving them a look and didn't know about it.

Thanks! And continue spreading the love of Marl. :D

Subject:Rhapsody Strategy Guide on eBay
Posted by:_velfarre.
Time:3:39 pm.
Not sure if any of you are still out there, but I just came across this on ebay:


It's a Japanese strategy guide for Rhapsody, at the very affordable price of $15 (plus $6.50 shipping). I've done too much shopping in the last few weeks to justify this purchase for myself, but one of you might want it since it's not something you see for sale all the time. It also says in the listing that it's an art book but it's hard to tell how far that stretches.

Just a heads up!

Subject:Thousand Arms Manga translation project
Posted by:guardianrandy.
Time:3:27 pm.
Hey, everyone. I don't know if many people check this community, but I figured I'd post this for the few who still do. I figured a lot of fans who got into Rhapsody and the Marl games back in the day may have also played Thousand Arms. I know that's how I first heard about Rhapsody coming out. So I bought one of the Thousand Arms manga 4-panel comic books back in 2004, and I finally got around to scanning and translating it into English for those who are interested in it. I've started posting them to my photobucket account if anyone wants to check them out. I don't know how often I'll update or get around to translating more, but I'll keep posting notifications on here if I get any feedback to prove there are still living souls out there interested.

Subject:News on the extra content of Rhapsody DS
Posted by:liferain.
Time:9:15 pm.
So... A NISA employee has apparently stated that the extra content in Rhapsody DS (Ellie's story and Cherie's story) has been removed from the US version. I'm trying to get confirmation on the truth of this, but it seems legit for now.

Just out of curiosity, has NIS mentioned anything in the past week or so about the many, many, many bugs that Rhapsody DS has had so far? I know a lot of people here have had problems, and I'm a bit hesitant to keep playing through now.

Subject:Rhapsody DS is out
Posted by:_velfarre.
Time:6:42 pm.
I got Rhapsody DS today. Despite many sources saying it was released Tuesday (which I'm pretty sure was correct, but maybe it was changed last minute), a lot of stores didn't label it as being out until today. Not only that, but the stores that said that didn't have it today in my area. One of those even listed it as being available at that exact location today, but it definitely wasn't there (even accounting for them possibly not knowing the alphabet). After about the third or fourth store I made my way to EB games (I didn't go there first because I went in the order that was easiest driving-wise) which had several copies.

I'm not very far (just got done with the contest, about to see the prince get kidnapped), but so far I'm really happy with it. It looks like they kept the PS translation, which was something I was concerned about--I was afraid they'd change the dialogue. Strangely enough, the NISA page for Rhapsody lists Sharte as "Shalte", but in the game it's still Sharte. I guess that's NISA for you. The controls are nice, and I like the new battle system, I guess because I've been playing Little Princess and have gotten used to a standard-RPG system. Having a map is nice too, since I remember having to make my own with graph paper when I first got Rhapsody. I don't know if there's a way to change this, although I don't really want to, but the songs are by default in Japanese with English subtitles, the subs coming from the English versions of the songs and not direct translations. The sound quality is better than I thought DS speakers were going to give me. The little microphone minigame is pretty useless, and you either have to blow fairly hard or put your face kinda close to the mic and can no longer see what's happening on the screen. To be honest though it's not an important feature anyway, I can't see myself ever needing an extra 30 inotium that I couldn't get from a few easy battles.

I was kind of worried that the game would be too watered down because of the whole advertising ploy of "Perfect even if you've never played an RPG". It's a pretty close port to the PS version overall. I've not noticed it as being any easier than the PS version, although there don't seem to be different difficulty settings so if you do find it too easy, you're out of luck. The biggest thing I could see helping someone who wasn't used to playing RPGs is that you can ask Kururu what you're supposed to be doing, but it's mostly common sense unless you had put the game down for a long time and got off track. I haven't gotten far enough to have played the Angel's Present chapters, but I'll probably post again about them. Basically, I'm incredibly impressed with how good they did putting this game on the DS. It's a refreshing way to replay the game. My only real complaint with the game is that Etoile's character art looks really weird to me. I can't figure it out, but her face just doesn't look right. Also the Nyankos suddenly have wider heads and smaller eyes, but oh well. Everyone else looks just fine.

So, does anyone else have it yet?

Does anyone happen to have a rip of the omake disc from Little Princess +1? I've been looking with no luck. ._.

And perhaps the Marl image songs too? I'd love you forever.

Hey guys! ♥

Um, I was wondering if someone can point me to Cornet pics that show various expressions? I'm planning to play her at econtra_rpg, you see, and it would be fun to have as many variations in her icons as possible.

Also! If there are roleplayers here who might want to play Kururu, or Etoile... I would so love you if you join. ♥

Thanks a lot! And I'm also looking forward to the DS release! :D
