i hope that i can still find a copy. should've bought the new copy when i had the chance.


You can find it on Amazon.Some their sellers still carry new copies with the artbook and poster.The game is too good to pass up and its very good.

just picked up a new copy at gamestop for 20 bucks... now if i could just finish some games instead of padding the backlog i'd be doing something.

Wow, I just think it's cool that despite the game coming out in 2010, it's still loved and remembered.  In the 2010 Game of the Year awards, it was #5 in my individual list.  Definitely a game I thought would make a bigger splash than it did.  I enjoyed it and definitely saw why import games love the series so much. 

I'm with whoever said this is part of the list of "cool games that not enough people played."  For me, Panzer Dragoon Saga is #1 (I still have yet to play it and I badly want to), Shantae is definitely one, and Beyond Good & Evil too.

Ooh, good choices! Very fond of all three myself.

And agreed! I'm happy that poor sales or no, Sakura Taisen found a receptive audience in the West. It's a series that for me is very much more than the sum of its parts, with willfully silly stories and average-ish strategy combat somehow gelling into something so irresistibly charming. It's a real shame that the series will probably never see the light of day in English again, but it's cool that N1 were willing to give it a chance even once. I'd probably take a crack at translating the other games myself if I knew anything about the technical side of things. :'D

Don't know if it's been mentioned here already, but interestingly a company called Akella actually localised the PC ports of the first two games into Russian a number of years back. My Russian isn't really good enough to judge how good the translation is, but either way I thought it was kind of cool!

That's very impressive. If only a western Europe country had done it, then maybe it'd be English too. :P


I wouldnt' mind screens if you could find them. (Kind of odd no one's fan translated the first two games, come to think of it...)

Sure! I couldn't find many screens that didn't come from sites with... um... questionable content, but I still had the game installed, so I just took a couple from the first chapter. Here you go: http://imageshack.us/g/194/screenshot365s.jpg/

And yeah, likewise, especially with (presumably easier to work with?) PC ports floating around. They're not exactly the most challenging games from a language perspective, either, outside of a couple of tricky puns and the relatively large amount of text. If nothing else, hopefully N1's work on the series will have pushed it onto the radar of a few fan translation savvy individuals. :)

This is entirely too awesome. I'm giving this some HG101 love.

So uh, FYI, there's a fan translation brewing now. :P

I posted some screens at a few other forums. I can't access them now, but rest assured it's going to be pure awesome. Based on the Russian hack(?), using the JP script as a foundation.
