However, as the player progresses eventually the antagonists will join Lady in battle, united to fight a bigger foe. An enlarged party does little to affect gameplay though as Lady remains the only character the player gets to control. Your new allies simply use magic from the sidelines with the tutor attacking with fire and the Cook healing.
While there isn't the sweeping plot of a game like 'Final Fantasy VI' there does seem to be more text than needed. Menus are awash with Kanji to the point where a non-Japanese reader has little hope of being able to equip items. Indeed I only understand the basic plot from reading translations online and have no idea why Yoshio and Cocks suddenly decide to help Lady when they seem so keen to keep her locked away at the start of the game. Until the fan translation community turns their collective heads to this game, for anyone outside Japan it's largely inaccessible. Given that it's not been done by now suggests it never will be.
there's an infamous YouTube video where many of the 12,000 viewers criticise the reviewer for giving a score to 'Lady Stalker' after just watching the introduction. That being said this opening video does show some game scenes that look quite good fun. Apparently the game can be finished in 12 hours which is rather short for an RPG but in that time you'll ride in mine carts, shrink in size and climbing inside an enemy's body.
