Happy New Year everyone!

The first draft of the script is now 100% translated. I've spent the past couple days hacking the text display for battles and it's now finally in a playable (but ugly) state.
   
   
Also, now that I've made pretty significant progress in the project, I can realistically estimate that the translation will be completed by June 2016.
awesome magical!! It is looking really nice!!

Could be a little dangerous to announce a probable release date, but I'll be waiting for it.  Thanks a huge lot for your great effort!!!  :thumbsup:

I have always been fond of magic in RPG, so I am very interested in this release! The graphics look quite nice too!  :)

Yep - Had to chime in and add my own 'Great work!', 'Go for it!', and various 'You rock!' sentiments :) Congratulations on your recent breakthroughs with the battle text. The work you've presented so far is extremely promising. Happy new year, and thank you!

Great stuff. Been wishing for a while now that an English patch for this would be released. It's one of the few Japan-only titles left on my 'wanna play but can't because the game hasn't been translated and I don't know Japanese' list.

Thanks for undertaking the hard task of translating this.

Edit: do you have any unfinished versions of the patch that I could test out?

So much progress in such a short time! You're awesome, I'm definitely putting this on my list. Good luck with the rest of the game!  :)
If you need any testers, please let me know.

Good progress is being made. The script is going through its second pass. Menu and battles are mostly translated although there's still a lot of text that needs manual repositioning to look good. I've also finished most of the graphics hacking and just finished hacking the name select screen so here are some comparison screenshots:

     
     
As for testing, I will be mostly playing through and testing myself. After all, playing through a buggy incomplete patch would probably spoil the experience  ;)

Beautiful work! :)

Trust me, you will want as many people testing for bugs as you can get. There is only so much one person can do. However, if you feel like you've got it handled, more power to you. ;)

Awesome! Good luck with the project!
I always wondered why no one translates this gorgeous game.
Regards from Europe.

hope to play this one in the future

Whoa.   The graphic they have is almost same Sword of Mana.
Very interesting! I never heard of the game before, the Mana series vibe is noticeable (at least visually). The screens look great!  :)
That's because the same company made Sword of Mana.

Glad to see this is getting translated. I have the sequel, but the forced touch controls are kinda annoying.

They wrote it in the first post on the thread: Expect to see the translation patch released sometime June 2016. ;D

Status update:
  • Things left to translate are 288 bestiary entries, an opening cutscene, and endgame credits.
  • Various issues such as slowdown / flickering when drawing a lot of text has been fixed.
  • Menu and battle text is mostly polished now.

Despite what I said previously, I would actually like to have some beta testers help with finding issues in the patch. Please send me a PM if you're interested in testing. I'll likely be reaching out in late March / early April.

OMG, I can NOT wait to try this!
I'm a huge fan of the magical series, I even have a real copy of Magical Vacation. I completed the game long ago but I was always SOOOO frustrated not to be able to fully understand what's going on in this game!
I'm really looking forward to play it in English!
Give us news as soon as you can  :thumbsup:
