Update By: Tom

A translation patch has been released for Majin Tensei, a strategy-RPG for the Super Famicom. (The translation patch is available in both .bps and .ips format.) Patching the Japanese rom will allow the game to be played in American English.

The hacking was done by DDSTranslation, the script was translated by Tom, and the title screen was created by FlashPV. This is the same team that released a patch for the sequel, Majin Tensei II: Spiral Nemesis.

With this release complete, all of the Megami Tensei related games on the Super Famicom have been translated.

So, with all of the SNES MegaTen games translated, it looks like the PSX games are next.

Unlikely sadly, the interest for the Megami Tensei remakes for the PSX seem very low.

Also, to my understanding DDS specializes in hacking SFC. PSX is a different system, one that isn't particularly popular with translation hackers either, and I don't know if DDS ever did hacking for it. There's also a PC Megami Tensei game (Giten), but yet again the same issues apply.

Very nice! I loved the work on Tengai Makyou Zero, and I'm a bit of a Megaten dilettante, so I'll be sure check this out.

That was a great milestone you guys did, all that's left now are:

Aretha II
Kishin Korinden ONI
Bakumatsu Korinden ONI 2
Elfaria – The Isle of the Blest
Elfaria II – The Quest of the Meld
Daikaijuu Monogatari II

I can't wait until these are translated I've been waiting nearly 10 years for it!

Well, Tom has already worked previously on PSX games with other guys (Persona 2 is one of his works).

What about Digital Devil Monogatari: Megami Tensei II though? We only have the remake on the SNES  :P

Finally the Majin Tensei has been translated, great work to the people.
By the way, there is a alternate 1.1 revision of the game, will there be a patch for that also?
I believe the morning sun, always gonna shine again.

Daikaijuu Monogatari II

I've been wishing for several years, that someone would pick up Dark Kingdom for translation. But for now, it stays way below the radar of translation groups.

is it me or is Dark Kingdom looking really similar to Tenshi no Uta?

You know I totally forgot about those two:

Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei
Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei II

Do you guys really think they should translate those games?

I think it resembles Laplace no Ma, but Tenshi no Uta is close too. Anyway, non-SD character designs are rare on SNES, especially outside of MegaTen games.

DDS:MT 1 is translated, you can find the patch on this site. Part 2 isn't, but I believe Tom and Pennywise mentioned they'd tackle it eventually.
When it comes to SNES games, there are still probably dozens of RPGs left, and hundreds of other games, but there's been some great progress lately. It's only a matter of time until all the best games are translated.

You forgot:
Maten Densetsu - Senritsu no O-parts
Wizap! - Ankoku no Ou
Hanjuku Hero - Aa, Sekaiyo Hanjukunare...!

The first one is quite nice SMT clone. Wizap! is second game in trilogy that also includes Dark Lord for NES and Dark Law for SNES which are already translated by AGTP. Hanjuku Hero for SNES is nowhere near completed and nowadays games from this series are most obscure games made by Square for consoles. It would be really awesome to have translations for these games.
Also SNES got few interesting adventure/sound novel games (NES still got more of this type of games and PS1 even more), unfortunately I doubt that anyone will ever translate them.

Also, to my understanding DDS specializes in hacking SFC. PSX is a different system, one that isn't particularly popular with translation hackers either, and I don't know if DDS ever did hacking for it. There's also a PC Megami Tensei game (Giten), but yet again the same issues apply.
It makes me sad that PS1 isn't popular with hackers. Sometime ago I did my research and from what I discovered PS1, PS2 and Sega Saturn have so much interesting games that never left Japan. So many obscure gems that's unbelievable.
Giten Megami Tensei and SMT: NINE translations would be cool but primarily we need Devil Summoner translation.
