I would like to get the Hydlide games for my MSX1, but all I can seem to find are Japanese language versions (or what appear to be Japanese versions.) Is there a language selection option in the game, or do I need to specifically find English versions?

Hydlide 1 is in English, Hydlide 2 is in Japanese only and Hydlide 3 is in both Japanese and English (with in-game language select).

Thanks for the info! I wonder why Hydlide 2 was Japanese only, with English versions on either side?

No idea about that either...

Sama (here on MRC) made a translation of Hydlide II once, though. I don't think it's publicly available.

Apply the patch on the original rom - use a tool such as IPSEXE : http://www.zophar.net/utilities/patchutil/ipsexe.html

Mmmm, I think that is not my translation that link points to, not sure though. Anyway, have fun, Hydlide 2 is a gem that should be appreciated.
