A Super Nintendo emulator is needed to play Arcana. You can download one from my emulators page. If you need assistance with any of the emulators offered on my site, check out my emulation help subsite: Video Game Emulation for Newbies.

Arcana (U)

The official North American release of Arcana. As I mentioned in the About the Game page, not everyone is a fan of the official English translation. It was a sloppy job.

Experience Arcana in entirely new ways with these ROM hacks! I'm distributing the hacks here in two ways: “pre-patched” and “patch”. The “pre-patched” download is the hack already applied to the game--just download and play! The “patch” download is just the patch; this is for people who insist on patching the game themselves. If you would like help with patching, check out my patching tutorial.
