Does anyone have a mirror of "Fallout Quest", the JRPG demake?

    It's gone forever. It was made to be part of the FNV Japanese release Bethesda site. It was only ever hosted there and was taken down after FNV was released in Japan.

    But if it makes you feel better, it wasn't really much of a game, it was more like a guide explaining to Japanese players how open world games work, using a format familiar to those players (jRPG look alike).

    Here is a description of it someone else made that explains it better than I can, it's from a different forum:

    The concept is not surprising. Through my travels I have encountered various pseudo games that are designed to prep Japanese players for various "western" style game mechanics. However these typically apply to first person shooters that are not as common in the Japanese market vs. the west.

    Funnily enough Japan has begun to embrace more western first person shooters, and have thriving communities around them now.

    They are tutorial games, as they are intended to assist a region with building muscle memory as well identifying the patterns required to recognize in other games.

    Could you imagine never having played a FPS, RTS, or RPG? Games such as these are normally designed for small children, however when the market expands into new regions they develop these to "encourage" their new potential customers to purchase more worth while titles.

    Japan has done this a couple times with their genres, too. Remember Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest?
