Update By: Verve Fanworks

Through the fire and flames, we carry on! Started many moons ago by two-fan
crew Sandslice and Sixfortyfive, the Dragon Force II translation effort has
proceeded in fits and starts and lives on as a community-wide project at Verve Fanworks. We're grateful for all the support we've received from the RHDN community and a veritable army of testers over the years.

This release will let English-speaking Dragon Force fans understand the flow of gameplay, from navigating menus to conducting armies on the field to managing domestic affairs. What it does not do is translate the story. One out of eight storyline scenarios is complete and awaiting insertion, and a second is partially translated, but given the project's size it's clear we're going to need a lot more translation help if a fully English Dragon Force II is ever to see the light of day.

In addition to attracting more volunteer Japanese-to-English translators, we hope this release will spark a healthy fan community around a game that definitely deserves a cult following. Users new to Saturn emulation will want to pay very close attention to the readme and head over to our Dragon Force II project forum with the inevitable questions. Our readme will become a living document as it's updated with frequently asked questions and answers.

Let's leave you with a forty minute presentation highlighting the game's beautiful music and artwork alongside the gameplay translation in action, plus a story preview for one of the eight scenarios and our QA tester recruitment drive video.

Seeing Shining Force III in complete English and now this game making significant progress is truly remarkable. I'm glad that these Saturn classics are getting the love that they deserve. Thanks for all the hard work you guys have put into this, I imagine it hasn't been easy :P.

This is so awesome. I was addicted to the original Dragon Force back in the day, it's still my favorite strategy game of all time. It was always so depressing that the sequel is basically unplayable without Japanese knowledge.

I've been following this for quite some time now and I really hope they find some translators who are willing to help. This project is definitely worth it.
