Translations: Metal Max Returns nearly ready for Beta
« on: April 12, 2007, 05:45:22 pm »

Update By: Dapper Gent

Old bean Gideon Zhi's down to the brass tacks again, this time announcing that Metal Max Returns is just about ready to enter beta-testing. From the mouth of the man himself:

Quote
Just a quick post to air out an old project. I picked Metal Max Returns up a few days ago with the intention of finishing it lo and behold, it´s nearly done. I´m _NOT_ going to be expanding character names, I´m afraid - the menu alterations would just be too much work - but otherwise, I think it looks pretty good.


For those of you not familiar with the game, Metal Max Returns is a SFC remake of NES RPG Metal Max. It was rehashed for PS2 and translated by Atlus in 2006 as Metal Saga.

This is not strictly correct; Metal Saga is a follow-up. Whether it takes place in the same "world" as Metal Max is unclear, as there's no aerial transportation and Metal Max's explorable region may be elsewhere in the world, separated the same way the Suikoden games are separated. Metal Saga does follow-up on the overall plot events of Metal Max, though, and it includes a number of subtle hints and nudges in the directions of Metal Max and Metal Max 2.

This is great news. :) I've been wanting to play this game for a long time. Can't wait till it's finished. Keep up the good work. ;)
