Towns And Shopping
This is a list of all the towns and villages you'll visit while playing Super Ninja Boy. Also included is a list of all of the establishments in the town, and the items for sale in each of the item shops! For the minigames in the towns, check the Mini-Games section of the shrine!
First, an explanation on the establishments commonly found inside towns.
Item Stores sell items (picking something up on your ovi-ometer, eh?) and equipment. The Item Store owner looks funny.
Inns restore your HP and NP for absolutely no charge! The Innkeeper looks like Dr. Wily, I think.
Convenience Stores are a totally free service. They act as "respawn" points if you ever get killed, so if you ever get knocked out in battle, you return to the last Convenience Store visited, though you will lost a lot of Sen. When you first enter a convenience store, the owner will tell you how much experience you are away from your next level. His other commands are:
Revive: Bring back your partner if he was killed. Like using Bonzebot, but free!
Change Players: Change from 1 Player mode to 2 Player mode, or vice-versa.
Password: Mr. Convenience-Store-who-looks-just-like-the-Soundmaster gives you a password, and you should really write it down, unless you are using a rom, where you can cheat with your save states!
Leave: Leave the store. Please come again!
Now, the moment you probably haven't been waiting for. Bring on the towns!
The capital city of Chinaland, and home of the honourable Emperor Chin. The first town you will visit during your adventure, Yokan has fallen victim to burgulars, who have stolen jewels and, ahem, prime workers...
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Emperor Chin's Palace, Notruedamus' Shrine, Item Store.
North of Yokan, Horizon Gate is a town of karate men, ninjas, fighters, and the like. Kung-Fu is said to have been established here. As well, this town is "Closest to the Celestial Realm", according to one of the NPCs. The Forest Temple is situated here, and the Elemental Chambers are open for you whenever you feel like a bit of 2-D Special Stage training!
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Rick's Palace (Forest Temple), Gengai's Temple, Item Store.
Edo is a city of samurai warriors, but I'm sure you could tell that by now just by looking at the name. Anyways, when you first arrive, all of the samurai are "idle" or "apathetic". Basically, they can't DO anything! It's your job to restore them! King Toro runs this city, and lives in the palace with his daughter, Princess Tamago.
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Samurai Scorpio's Place, King Toro's Palace, Item Store.
Though the details are sparse, I believe the region of Fairyland is run by King Ashur of Kingland. This town has a middle-age European feel to it, hence the name Kingland. The people of this town talk of King Romel, who keeps the evil town of Satoon at peace, and Princess Julia, who lives in the town of Fairy Town to the west. Also, the great Dr. Justice has taken a vacation in this town, and should be visited from time to time (his inventions will greatly benefit our heroes!)
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Dr. Justice's Hotel, Ashur Castle, Item Store.
Due west from Kingland (you won't have to travel very far!), Fairy Town is a cutesy town filled with mushroom houses, elves and fairies. May be a little too sweet for the average player's taste! This town is the home of Princess Julia and her father, who has locked himself in the Fairy Tower. Julia's father was working with King Romel on something dubbed the "Project 3-F", but has quit because he feels King Romel is acting strange lately....
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Julia's House.
A beautiful oasis town situated at the southern end of the vast desert, Celestern is home to a great number of magic students, and is ruled by the maiden of the desert, Scheherazade. In this town lies clues for navigating the Tower of Belba, situated south of here. FYI, Scheherazade is a character from an early Culture Brain NES game entitled Magic of Scheherazade!
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Scheherazade's Palace, Exchangeya, Item Store.
A town of "evil ones", though they don't seem at all evil to me! The ghost/bedsheet/whatever-they-are residents of this town are complaining of an odd odour coming from the tower situated west from here, saying it is making them sleepy and weak. It's up to you to investigate what's going on, and what King Romel is doing in the tower in the first place!
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Item Store.
A VERY small town of fishermen, based on the coast of Mysteryland, which is the 3rd quarter of the game. It's only purpose is that it can be used as a landmark for those people who are looking for the entrance to the Mysteryland continent...
The "town of mystery"!.... um, ok... I guess it is. This is a town far beyond the jungles of Mysteryland, and is far more important than Seaside Town. The people here travel north, up to the mountains to visit the wise man Mr. Slowpo, who is quite... slow O_o. The Prince of the Anca region in which you are travelling lives here. His name is Lama, and his sacred Temple of Bayon has been occupied by the Pitts Gang. He needs your help reclaiming this holy place, yet the only way to get IN the temple is to ask Mr. Slowpo for advice......
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Prince Lama's Palace, Item Store.
The underwater city of Moo, home to King Atlant, is under attack by the multi-armed sea beast, Nargi and the dangerous General Bismol. Only travellers with a submarine can scourge the ocean depths beyond this peaceful city and save it from the wrath of Nargi and Bismol!
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, King Atlant's Palace, Undersea Passage, Item Store.
An enemy infested, deserted town. Ghouland is said to contain the secret to defeating Nargi...
Establishments: Hidden Item Store.
Items (In Hidden Item Store):
The power core of the final continent in the game, Futureland. There's nothing really special here, except for the Subway which connects Futureland together. Ride the Subway (Indicated by the building with the S sign near it) to progress to the next town.
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Subway to Athletown, Item Store.
This lively town is the headquarters of the Future Sports Commitee. For some strange reason, Jack and Ryu are not welcome here at all. Supposedly, they stole something from Oly, the head of the Future Sports Commitee. It's up to Jack and Ryu to clear their names, which will take a long series of events starting with B.B Virgo's minigame, and ending in the sewer canal. After clearing your name, Oly will let you use the Grandpolis Subway to travel further into Futureland.
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Oly's House, Subway to Computown, Grandpolis Subway Station, B.B Virgo's Place, Sewer Entrance, Item Store.
A small, "indian" town based in Futureland, after passing through Grandpolis. The village chief, Apax, says he gave his treasure, the Marvel Box, to Rub-A-Doc for safekeeping. However, Rub-A-Doc has been kidnapped by the evil Galands (the Galands are the bad guys in this game). Jack and Ryu must cross Mt. Rocky, another sewer canal, and the final, biggest dungeon in the game in order to save Rub-A-Doc and restore peace to the world with the Auraballs and the Marvel Box! Good luck! By the way, Bigbot does not land on the ground situated around this village, so if you call him to fly around the world, you will not be able to get back here without going through ALL of Futureland again!
Establishments: Inn, Convenience Store, Apax's Tent, Exchangeya, Item Store.
Well, that's all for the towns in the game! By the way, the game actually spelled "Psychic" as "Scichic", so don't say I didn't warn you!
