Want to play one of the greatest action RPGs ever but can’t read Japanese and don’t want to break the law? Then read on for instructions on how to play Soma Bringer for the Nintendo DS–legitimately.
Step 2: Buy a copy of Soma Bringer. You can purchase a new copy from Play-Asia.com (recommended) or a used copy on eBay.
Step 3: Back up your Soma Bringer cartridge. This step is a tad complicated, but there’s an excellent step-by-step guide over at Monroeworld.
Step 5: Apply the patch to your Soma Bringer backup file. Instructions are included with the patch download linked above.
Step 6: Copy the patched Soma Bringer backup file to your flashcart.
Step 7: Insert the flashcart into your DS and play!
I hope to post similar tutorials for American gamers after Xenoblade and The Last Story are released in Europe and after the Pandora’s Tower fan translation patch makes further progress.
