So far, I've seen on this site several lists about Japanese games that have yet to be translated. From Psyklax's list in which the plans is to translate the earliest Famicom games
, another list from Psyklax in which the plan is to translate every known Japanese (and to a lesser extent, Brazilian & other non-Japanese languages) SMS game
, Goldenband's list of untranslated SG-1000 games
, and of course, most recently, Filler's list of untranslated Japanese Sega Game Games
There are also other people's lists of games that they want to translate.
However, I don't see a list of untranslated Sega Saturn games. And it's kinda sad, 'cause yeah, everybody knows that in the US the Sega Saturn wasn't that popular during the time (it had a PS Vita moment), it was more expensive than the PlayStation, the emulation of the console is shoddy to this day
, and there's little to absolutely
no documentation whatsoever of the console.
But guess what? More than 20 years have passed, and suddenly Saturn emulation is slowly starting to pick up traction, documentation is somehow still there, and a guy managed to bypass the CD DRM of the Saturn games. The Saturn Emulation Era is almost here, or is here and we didn't even notice it.
Again, as I said before, there isn't a list of untranslated Saturn games in here, or anywhere else for that matter. (I don't even know if there are any Saturn hacking scenes on the Internet.)
It would be nice to have one, considering that Sega Saturn had their fair share of PS1 ports: Grandia I, Lunar: Silver Star Complete, Lunar: Eternal Blue Complete, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
, between others.
People might be reminding everybody, "but those are already on PS1", and I'd say "Yes, I know.", but what if those ports are updated than the PS1 ports? What if those ports are more definitive than the others? Think about it.
As far as I know, Romhacking.net's list of translated Sega Saturn games
, two are still unfinished: Langrisser III, and Ninpen Manmaru (one of Sega Saturn's few 3D platform games). It would be nice if they got finished someday.
In fact, it would be great to see a list of Saturn games that need to be translated. God knows who's willing to translate Shining Force III's Scenario II & Scenario III.
