[PC-98] Official Japanese guide book

Post by David »

While I was browsing the Sega Retro site, I found an official Japanese guide book for PoP:
https://retrocdn.net/File:Prince_of_Per ... ook_JP.pdf (64 MB PDF, but you can preview individual pages)

It's in Japanese, but it's filled with screenshots and even level maps.

I will probably OCR and translate the pages which, based on the screenshots, may tell about the unique things found in the PC-98 version, such as the trap potion on level 3 (pages 39, 41, 67), or the guard on level 13 who replaces Jaffar (page 172).

I also wonder what they wrote about falling into pits and other dead-ends on the annotations of some level maps...

(All page numbers refer to the pages of the PDF, which are 2 more than the page numbers in the book itself.)
