Translations: Soul Hackers spreads its (bat) wings
« on: December 24, 2010, 08:46:17 am »

Update By: Gemini

The Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers project is back on track, this time with a few not-so-broken pictures (and a video teaser here).

What has been done so far:
  • All story dialogs have been translated as well as most of the system strings;
  • Partially translated battle dialog;
  • Coded a new 8 BPP VWF overlay that supports all of the font modes used in game (the old one caused so many glitches I was forced to kill it entirely).

As usual many thanks to Tom for providing all the translated text.  Hope you like it!

I couldn't tell from their website, but I guess this is the psx version? Great game, great project.

Merry X-mas to y'all  :woot!:

Yeah, it's the PlayStation version.

It's a culmination of all that's right, and just in this world! It's awesome news, and I'm very excited about it!

Sorry to necropost, but is this still alive ? I can't find anything, anywhere, anymore.

Well, the 3DS version is coming out in English and likely other non-Japanese languages too...

We can only speculate, but that's probably why this got dropped. I've heard Tom(the translator) is kind of in the dark on what happened too.

This wasn't dropped at all, it's just on hold. I love how the people on Gaf think we got a C&D letter when I have totally no idea what one looks like. :D

I'll tell you time really does fly. It's been 3+ years since the project was announced. A translation like this taking 5+ years isn't that hard to imagine.

So while this thread is up, is the game actually any good? Thinking about getting the 3DS version :P

Well this is the first time you've even addressed the project in months. Maybe if you were more open about it people wouldn't have to speculate?

I'm glad to hear that, though.

Yes, it's wonderful. One of my favorite SMTs. The 3DS version is solid but I'd still like to see Tom's version of it.

I did write about it a long time ago about me not dropping the project even with Atlus officially localizing it. A brief summary of that can still be found here as my original blog was lost in backups.

I vaguely recall that, but I don't see any mention of SH... water under the bridge though, your word's good enough for me. I hope you get back to it soon.

It's funny how ridiculous conspiracy theories at neogaf can get; "Gemini/Bird of Feathers/[insert_translation_lead_here] got money from Atlus/Xseed/[insert_publisher_here] to drop his fan-translation project for SH/Zwei 2/[insert_game_here] without saying anything, and now the script translators are very pissed off"
I think they are now busy talking about how much the Wii U is doooooomed, or interpreting "initial draft of Type-0 main-script only translation is to be finished in 3 weeks if the current rate is maintained" as "PATCH RELEASED IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS ZOMG" :P
We need help from Japanese-fluent translators for the Ni no Kuni DS English project. PM if interested. (no machine translators)
