Dragon Quest XI (3DS) Translation Project
« on: March 28, 2018, 11:54:35 am »
Hello, all.

Today, Square-Enix has officially confirmed that DQXI on the 3DS will *not* be localized for the West.

With the announcement of this sad news, now's the best time to get working on a fan translation. I'm posting this topic to drum up interest in the hopes of getting things moving in the right direction. (Apologies if this is not posted in the right area)

I am a JPN-ENG translator. Hoping to slowly but surely find people willing to do the technical work (and more translators) to get this moving in the near future.

If anyone is interested, let's discuss.
I plan to pick up a copy in the next month or so and start playing through it in my (very limited) free time for starters.

Is it going to be on Switch? (they seem to be in a port-happy mood and certainly putting it on that console might explain why they wouldn't want to localize the 3DS port. Then again, Square-Enix didn't put much out on 3DS in the west except a little bit at the beginning and then a bit in 2016.)

Are there any completed 3DS game hacks out already?  I was not under the impression that it was particularly easy to run them, either in an emulator or with some kind of flash cart.

Dragon Quest Monsters 3, Dragon Quest Monsters 1, Maple Story 3ds, probably quite a few others.

It's at the point where emulator or flash cart aren't really the way to do it.

I've heard there's been multiple 3DS Pokemon hacks already.

I hope this works out, I just ordered a copy of the game 8)

Are there any completed 3DS game hacks out already?

We're not allowed to host them here at this site, but I know there are a few.

I know there's a patch to insert the Japanese orchestral music into the International releases of Dragon Quest VII (and VIII?).

I know a lot of other games have un-dub patches, and some have uncensored patches.
