Welcome to Her Destiny, TheFanlistings.org‘s approved listing for the Super Famicom roleplaying game Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story.
This fanlisting was last updated on September 8, 2020.
It might not look much different, but the site’s been given a full makeover! As you might see from the Footer Navigation, there are lots more pages planned.
What’s a fanlisting?
A fanlisting is a place where fans (that’s you) gather to show their pride, their devotion, their love of– a character, a pairing, anything! Since this fanlisting is devoted to Sailor Moon: Another Story, if you like the game, then join: those with AND without websites are welcome to join.
Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story (abbreviated SMAS) was only released in Japan for their Super Famicom console, known as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in English-speaking countries.
However, fan group Bishoujo Translations created a translation patch for the game that allows players to enjoy it in English using emulator software for their computer (to mimic the Super Famicom system).
The story takes place after the third season of the 1990s Sailor Moon anime (known as Sailor Moon Super) but also makes several references to the third arc of the manga, the Infinity arc. At various points throughout the game, you play as Usagi (Serena), Chibiusa (Rini), and you can control the other Senshi, including Sailors Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Saturn.
Want to play the game?
You can download the original Japanese ROM, the original Bishoujo Translations patch, and the improved 2019 translation patch at Fantasy Anime. You’ll need an emulator that supports Super Famicom games, like OpenEmu.
Originally, the name of the fanlisting was based off the first chapter of the Bishoujo Translations version of the game from 1999. I later found out that the translation was pretty flawed, and the first chapter of the game actually more accurately translates to “Hell Destiny.” Without spoiling the events of the game, the latter translation actually makes more sense, but I’ve decided to keep the name Her Destiny, since it has to do with the Destiny of not just Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon, but also all of her fellow Sailor Senshi, including her daughter from the future, Chibiusa/Sailor Chibi Moon.
Where’d you get that cool background/font?
The green and chibi Sailor Moon patterned backgrounds (based on the diary backgrounds from the SMAS game itself) is from Moonstruck! The Sailor Moon: Another Story sprite comic. The comic is unfortunately defunct.
The font is Joystix by Typodermic Labs and is the closest web font I could find to the pixel-like font used in the Sailor Moon: Another Story video game.
