    Cool New Fan Translation Pending: Sakura Wars [SEGA Saturn, PC]

    It sounds like we are going to get a full translation of Sakura Wars for the SEGA Saturn and Windows / PC in 2019! Read on for all of the details.

    I post updates at SakuraWarsTranslation.com.

    His team will patch the PC version while I work on the Saturn version. The translations of all of the text will be shared across both platforms.

    Greetings Everyone!

    Hope you're all doing great. I figured it would be a good idea to let everyone know where the project current stands. You all have been making great progress so far! As it stands, 2/3rds of the story dialog files are either complete or in progress. Also, it'd be great if you could shoot me an email whenever you complete a file. Also if you are unable to proceed with the project, please let me know so I can open up those files to another translator. Thank you!

    Story Dialog
    Files Completed: 34
    Files In Progress: 11
    Files Remaining: 10

    Battle Dialog
    Files In Progress: 3
    Files Remaining: 10

    Tech Work Remaining
    -Patch the the menus with translated text
    -Patch the intro subtitles with translated text
    -Patch battle menu
    -Improve the look of the font
    -Fix display bug with LIPS event
    NoahSteam then goes on to list several tables of text which have been completed.

    I'll post more links when the translation work is finished. I've been looking forward to playing Sakura Wars in English for years!

    Been following this one for a while.

    I played through the game using a FAQ over 20 years ago.

    I've thought about doing that before (I've owned the game for Saturn and Dreamcast for years and years.), but switching from paper to game to paper just seemed like it would take away a lot of the fun compared to the seamless experience of playing a fully translated game. Not that we've had a choice until now, but using a FAQ seemed like a clunky solution for such a text-heavy game. Besides, from what I read of the FAQ's years ago, they seem to be only partial or cover only one pathway.

    How was your time playing the game via FAQ?

    Frustrating. Hah.

    There any many time-sensitive interactions with your squad that affect their feelings about you (and therefore their morale, affecting their battle performance, etc.).

    It's sad most people pass this one over, thinking it's a simple dating sim.
