A sound soul dwells within a sound mind and a sound body.

A full English translation of the 2008 NDS game Soul Eater: Medusa’s Plot (based on the hit anime of the same name) has been released!

The root of all evil is madness, but madness exists in everything. In order to control this paradox, Lord Death-the shepherd of souls, serves as guardian to mankind…
Set at Death Weapon Meister Academy, a school founded by Lord Death, the story follows the adventures of Maka Albarn and her giant scythe weapon, the titular Soul Eater, whose ultimate goal is to make Soul into a Death Scythe. However, they are struggling to find and claim the witch’s soul they need to achieve it.

While on assignment in Italy, the pair become entangled in the intricate plots of the fearsome witch Medusa, whose goal is to revive the Kishin, a being that turned mad and became a demon after consuming the souls of innocent humans. After an intense battle with Medusa’s child, Crona, Maka and Soul return to Death City and find themselves being teamed up with rival meisters Black Star and Death the Kid, along with their weapons (Tsubaki, who can transform into a variety of ninja weapons and Liz and Patty, twin sisters who transform into a pair of pistols) in order to fight against Medusa and stop her from unleashing the madness of the Kishin upon the world.

A retelling of the first half of the anime’s storyline, players can step foot into the shoes of Maka, Black☆Star and Kid, to train and take on missions that will test their metal, fighting against some of the legendary villains from the series.
Picking up the from the fast-paced, action-packed drama of the series, the game offers a unique chance to explore the world of Soul Eater as it’s never been seen before.

I love whenever a new GBA or NDS game is translated to english.

I don't think I have ever heard of a game for Soul Eater, I'll certainly try it.

Talking about anime, I still get pretty upset to see that the NDS version of Inazuma Eleven 3 was left in japanese.

Thank you for the walkthrough as well, that's a lot of kindness!

Thank you all for your kind comments! We hope you enjoy!

As there’s already an official translation for the game on 3DS, I’m afraid the chances of us picking it up are very slim. (We prioritise games that have never received an English release before, and given that the 3DS is still considered a current console by this site’s policy, we wouldn’t want to do anything which may negatively affect sales.)

But as for our other planned projects, the NDS as a console is still going strong  ;D

With everything happening in the world, I can't afford a PC to run 3DS on an emulator properly or buy a proper 3DS. USD are crazy high right now, and with other priorities, I don't expect for things to change any time soon. But I do agree with you, I prefer to see projects to translate games that never got translated before over anything else. So I understand.

Just thinking of so many games most of us never played because it's available exclusively in japanese...  :woot!: :woot!:

Will be cheering for you guys.

Be safe.
