    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Children. Fully playable.
    It's a rare coincidence last week I was trying the PS1 version of this in japanese. I know little of japanese but now I can play this fully in English. Luck or destiny?

    Surging Aura was already tackled, but oddly enough only in French IIRC---so Hopefully One Day.

    Surging Aura lacks turn-based combat. Couldn't get into it.

    I don't know if this thread is dedicated to translation of Visual Novels but for someone who likes them, I think this is pretty big news ...

    A user on zenhax announced the intent of translating Dungeon Travelers 2-2, but apparently it didn't go anywhere (so far)

    Original Medarot/Metabots has been translated. Even the remake of the second game, with all the added polish that implies, has some really stupid holes in the basic gameflow (it's very, very RNG) for me, so I won't be trying it, but I know this series has fans.

    Anyone know where to find a pre-patched version of that? The usual sources don't have it

    There is none.
    And you would have to find 4 different versions because of the balance changes(4 difficulties) if you want the full experience.
    Which complicates things even more.

    Curious, its not available in a lot of places, but I did find it one of IA's collections of 3DO games, and one French site. The lack of copies can probably be placed squarely on it being Korean and on an expensive console. Neither on their own are a prime target for preservationists, but together seems to have made it very obscure.

    Found it.
    You have to reach paradise(it is a hint).
    It is the normal difficulty version,though. Really wanted the hard difficulty one.

    Can't mount because it's corrupted/won't boot in Retroarch. Might have to patch it myself. Is it actually any good though?

    It is solid for a console tactical game,plus how many console tactical games deal with guns instead of fantasy?

    Some Updates

    The PSX version of Beavis and Butthead: Virtual Stupidity got translated. Why the PSX version of it was exclusive to Japan I have no idea.

    https://www.romhacking.net/translations/6283/

    Yu-Gi-Oh Tag Force 6 got an updated translation. From the description

    Naturally I checked if that meant SJW'fied, but a short look does seem to indicate that the original translator went extra edgy rather than the game now being full of trannies.
    *After some more research the original translator even added refrences to Yu-Gi-Oh: Abridged . So, yeah. Most likely a massive improvement.

    https://www.romhacking.net/translations/6292/

    Rabio Lepus Special

    Arcade Port for the TurboGrafx-16. Got a release for Arcade in North America where it was named Rabbit Punch

    Do you have a citation for that? I'm not doubting you, I'd just like to see for myself.

    This one is very good, and I'm not even a fan of visual novels as a genre. I hope other Soft Studio Wing games will receive a similar treatment someday.

    Short look at the game myself and no material and discussion about who's what gender + reactions of those who played the previous translation. I don't think it would help to cite a specific one, but the stuff I mentioned (Edgy and Abridged references) got cited on multiple sites (Reddit, comment section of a certain romantic download site and so on) It's not hard to find.

    The *offensive* stuff I've seen mentioned and its outrage also seems to fall firmly in place of edgy add-ons than accurate translation. Like rape jokes or your character calling others a bunch of faggots or over the top swearing in general (*Fuck at every corner, your tag partner mentioning how he's going to murder you in your sleep after losing*). I mean it could be fun in the Pokemon Rom-Hack sort of way, but yeah.
