Has anyone else played Just Breed?

Has anyone else played Just Breed?

It was the final big RPG made for the NES, had an expanded chipset in the cart to accommodate the sound and graphics and really puts me in the mind of the Lufia games.

It's got a similar overworld art style to TLR, and has a storyline reminiscent of a Lufia plot; ie: generations ago, heroes came together to seal away a mad god. Now, someone is trying to awaken it, and those who carry on the bloodlines of the original heroes must band together to confront the mad sage before he can wake it up and signal the end of the world.

Bonus points for it's weird hybrid playstyle of typical JRPG and Tactics game.

Anyway, I'm enjoying it a lot, and thought I'd share it with you all :)

Huh. Even the artstyle looks similar. Good find!
The title did make think it'd be... quite a different kind of game.

Yeah... the title is playing off of the old "a just breed of man" phrasing, and just... doesn't translate well in today's English heh.

Apparently there used to be some dedicated Just Breed fansites around the net. I'm trying to track down remnants of any to see if I can find any more interesting info about the title.

I actually found an innexpensive copy of this in-box with manual, which should be arriving in the next day or so. I'll still be playing a translated rom, but it's nice to have physical copies of these things :)
