Lunar: Silver Star Story is the first remake of the classic Sega CD RPG Lunar: The Silver Star. It follows the adventures of Alex, a young boy who dreams of following in the footsteps of a legendary hero.

The Saturn version was released twice; the second release, in 1997, features hardware-accelerated MPEG cutscenes along with some extra content and a few gameplay tweaks.

Unused Graphics

Hmmm...
To do:
Find out if this is in any of the other ports.

The 8x8 tiles used for the battle UI include an unused status effect, "のろい", or "cursed". This is present in both the original and Complete versions of the game, and unused in both.

Unused Items

The set of item strings in SYSTEM.DAT contains several unused items. Most of these are just placeholder names, though at least one item has a full description. None of these items have icons.

The English strings file in Lunar: Silver Star Story Touch contains non-generic descriptions for a couple of these items; it's unclear where those come from.

Number Name Description Notes
73 鎧\uf90e予備 (Spare armor) 鎧予備の説明 (Explanation of spare armor) f90e is a control code.
101 盾\uf90e予備 (Spare shield) 盾予備の説明 (Explanation of spare shield)
124 兜\uf90e予備 (Spare helmet) 兜予備の説明 (Explanation of spare helmet)
181 イベント道具予備 (Spare event item) ルイドの門を開く鍵 (Key to open Ruid's gate) This is an event item from Lunar: The Silver Star; in the remake, the characters use a different method of entering Ruid. In Complete, this slot is used for the 追憶の鏡 (Mirror of Remembrance, aka Rememberizer).

Developer Message

Both versions of the game have a file containing a developer message, located at TEXT/AR_BOOK.TXT in the original version of the game, and just AR_BOOK.TXT in the rerelease. It opens with an apology from a developer, explaining that they had hoped to have time to include subtitles for the voiced cutscenes; this is followed by a complete copy of the cutscene scripts.

・This file contains selected parts of the script used in the voiced lines for 
  the game's story.
・It may be difficult to fully enjoy the story if players didn't pick up on some 
  of the lines in animated cutscenes and character demos since the story advances 
  automatically.
・The best solution for this would be to add subtitles, but we couldn't add them 
  for a number of reasons.
・I don't think this is the best way to make up for the lack of subtitles, but 
  including the script was what I chose from the feasible choices we had. I, 
  Kei Shigema, take responsibility for this choice.

  will reveal everything about the game's story.
・Without further ado, please enjoy the world of Lunar. Nothing would make me 
  happier than if you warmed up to the characters.
