The PS2/Wii game is STIV, correct? How much connection is there between games in the series?

Five actually. The only connection is that that game's Harem Protagonist is the nephew of this game's Harem Protagonist.

Otherwise you're likely to maybe get a couple of nods and a wink or two in regards to the previous games at best.


That said, I wonder which will take less time, this project or the SA LP of this game?

Uh, the LP I assume... even if we get all the script in game, there is a LOT we have to tweak, namely the LIPS system.

We haven't even gotten to the battles yet...

Also worth noting the emblem on his blazer says 'Shujin High School', either 'Prisoner' or 'Husband'(probably the former, heh).

I usually don't share my stuff here, but if it wasn't for this site and that Russian version's exposure, this literally would not have happened, so I hope you all enjoy.

The project bounced around to a few other people, and none of them stuck with it, so...

Me and EsperKnight are doing it.

The translation is brand new, from a volunteer at NeoGAF named Nezumi.


(Note: we'll be changing the order to family name last.)









As you can see, the LIPS system works, but it requires some tweaking.





We're about 1/12th finished.

Well, I'm not interest in attempting to perform tarot readings.  I'll treat the cards like collectibles and keep them in one of my spare card cases. 

Anyhow, do we have any new word on SMT X FE at all?  I'm still curious whether it's going to draw Atlus characters from DDS, Persona, or other SMT umbrella games or just the core SMT series.  All I can find after a quick search is an E3 blurb saying "we're still working on it; please wait patiently."  Right.  Thanks. 

I do tarot readings, so yeah. :P I have two decks, no less. Major only tells half the tale, a broad spectrum
There was an interview with IntSys where they confirmed it's on schedule.

.....No one but me cares about a complete set of the Persona Major Arcana Cards? Fine I'll just enjoy these cards by myself. Harumph. :p

Personally, not interested without the minors as well. You can't do a proper tarot reading with only the major arcana.

Dialogue is delightful so far. I was a little disappointed at the end of the Five chapter(in that it was only one part), but the dialogue was golden.

"She's good at faking it. I can tell."

Daaaaamn.

I had no idea the SNES version was localized...

Somewhere Cozy Okada and Kazuma Kaneko were watching that and getting smashed.


"What have we done..."

Gen Xth was finished a few weeks back.

Traps, yes. I'm curious about the maps too. I've played Generation Xth(and tested the translation no less), and the maps in that were pretty fun.

No need for a DC to reinvent the wheel, IMO. The little things are enough, and I really favor this art style over anime. EO is an exception.

This looks like a trap in action:

Kind of surprised this isn't a hot topic here, news or forum wise...



This game's picking up a lot of import buzz, with good reason.




Tsurugi no Machi no Ihoujin is being developed by Experience for the 360, Vita, and PC.

They're also known for the forthcoming Vita dungeon crawler Demon Gaze, and the Japanese-only cyberpunk DC series 'Generation Xth: Code Hazard'.


Only the art for this is way more Wizardry inspired than the anime tone of Demon Gaze, thankfully.

This is the first official trailer for Tsurugi no Machi no Ihoujin, a first-person dungeon crawling RPG coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, and Windows in Japan. Developed by Experience, who's best known for the upcoming Demon Gaze, as well as the Generation Xth series, Tsurugi no Machi no Ihoujin places you in the shoes of a passenger on a flight that mysteriously crashes and subsequently wakes up in Escalio, a mysterious town besieged by perpetual night. As the chosen Stranger, it becomes your job to deal with the impending Extinction that looms over the land and take on the Successors, immortal creatures that only you can put down for good.

So yeah, hopefully if Demon Gaze does well, we can get this localized too.

Sort of want Dragon Force maybe?

I think... an RPG that had traditional PD rail shooter bits instead of dungeons/boss fights might've been more interesting.

Just in case CJ_Iwakura didn't drive the point home, or you missed it, I will intentionally echo the Dragon Force love he expressed.

If you are at all considering Dragon Force,  JUST DO IT!! It was, in my honest opinion, one Working Designs finest achievements. Whats more, I still can't say any game to this day really reminds of it... Quite a unique experience it was.

I'm still upset we didn't get the sequel stateside! LoL

As far as Panzer Dragoon goes, I totally agree with your statements Mesh. I will be so bold as to say I didn't enjoy my time with it at all. Its been a LONG time so I can't recall precisely why, but it was the only Saturn JRPG I dropped. Hell, to be honest I enjoyed Albert Odyssey more then PDS. Albert Odyssey wasn't exactly stellar by any means but at least it had charm... Panzer Dragoon had... ummmm.. yea, I'm at a loss... dragons I guess...?

WD didn't do Dragon Force II for a very good reason: it's pretty bad. Less detailed sprites, bland graphics, forgettable music, it's a pale shadow.

That said, it is being fan translated, so...

I'll second Mystaria. It's a wonderful game, though the graphics are kind of dated. (Okay, very)

My list:

Dragon Force: Worth EVERY penny. So much replay value, wonderful game. Aged like fine wine.
Magic Knight Rayearth: Not as rare as it should be, given it was the last game ever for the Saturn.
Shining The Holy Ark: Also dated, but still fun, solid dungeon crawler.
Shining Wisdom: Not great, but far from bad.
Shining Force III: Only part of the story, but it stands alone, and it's a lot of fun.


Avoid:
Virtual Hydlide. Irredeemable garbage.
Panzer Dragoon Saga: Wait, put down the pitchforks. It has its charms, but it is NOT worth the asking price. I vastly prefer the Xbox title.
Put the money you would waste on Saga towards Dragon Force and get eight times the fun out of it.

I sometimes think Atlus quietly took that project out back and put a bullet in its head.

Unless Intelligent Systems is making it, Atlus are way too busy to be involved, and it's a huge financial risk to put ANYTHING on the Wii U.
