NERVE TOWER UPDATE LOG
The Nerve Tower Guide Post is now open. Features full length walkthroughs for both the Saturn/Nintendo Switch and PS1 versions of Baroque, plus Quick Guides, and walkthroughs for the PS1-exclusive Scene List and Hell Dungeon. The Item List has also been updated with stats. New Distorted Delusion ("A Hungering God") added.
An English translation patch for the PS1 port, "Baroque ~Distorted Delusions~", is now available! Thank you very much to the modder, Plissken, for choosing to use my translation in this project. I provided a few additional translations for the PS1 exclusive dialogue, but most of the added lines are straight from Atlus USA's 2007 remake translation. The rest of the Japanese text (UI, alerts, etc) was handled by the modder. Please follow Plissken on Twitter for questions or updates regarding the patch.
