Wow! I've hoped to play this since the DeJap days.
Some game feedback; The grind is real with the insane encounter rate, almost quit more than once. The story is a bit too simple and full of JRPG clichés, but enjoyable and unique in its own way. That said, the visuals and sound are breath-taking. Little details everywhere and the game can be quite charming and immersive. I liked the combat and progression systems.
Regarding the translation and hacking: the effort put into this really shows, holy cow! Phenomenal work on all departments! Thanks so much Tom, DDSTranslation, FlashPV, DougRPG and others who worked on this over the decades.
