Description

Original title: 日本語 MSX-DOS 2 (Japanese MSX-DOS 2)

The package contains a ROM cartridge with version 2 of Disk BASIC, two 1DD 3.5" disks, and some manuals. Initially ASCII released two editions. One without additional RAM in the cartridge, and one with a 128kB Memory Mapper. The one without additional RAM requires an MSX2 with at least 128kB of memory installed, while the one with RAM can run on any MSX2. Later the edition with RAM was upgraded to 256kB for the same price.

One disk includes a Japanese (日本語) version of MSX-DOS 2 which requires a system with Kanji JIS1. The other disk is an English (英語) version of MSX-DOS 2 and will run on any MSX2 system.
