    Well, I made a new thread instead of keep posting about this in Random JRPG thread.

    For starter, Shouzou Kaga, the creator of Fire Emblem is making a freeware indie SRPG with a small "doujin" team, using a game making software aptly named SRPG Studio.



    Today Kaga posted some FAQ: http://zeeksweb.blog120.fc2.com/blog-entry-89.html

    - Not accepting donations, not interested in commercialization and no plans on donation drive (he says he's too old for that). And sure, no console releases.
    - This is a hobby project. It started without the tool and he had no intention to release it as it will require too much efforts on testing and support. Then he found SRPG Studio and started porting it. He and the team is making this for fun and intending to release it to readers of his blog.
    - It will be not be polished like commercial games. Forget beautiful art and comfortable controls. This is a retro game for oldies who fondly remembers the old games.
    - Current progress is at 50%. It takes 30 hours to play current build.
    - This is part one of two parts. It will have 20~25 maps. Each map is complex and big, and it will take 5 hours to complete it.
    - 100+ classes, but first part has 60% of it.
    - He says he is working hard with his old body.
    - ETA is next summer.

    I wonder, what are the odds of someone even translating this.

    If the game will be made, then there also will be translations by some group of fans or even single person. Fire Emblem have a long tradition of unofficial translations - which is fucking awesome, because the SNES trilogy is... well. fucking awesome. :greatjob:
    I really hope that Shouzou will finish this game.

    I'm pretty sure it will be translated after it's done. Lots of Fire Emblem fans in the West.

    True, but the quality of the translations are meh. I think 5 and 6 still aren't even fully scripted.

    Anywho, I want this game inside of me. That is all.

    Menu translations should be sufficient. All Fire Emblem games had fairly similar plot and I doubt that this is going to differ much.

    Man, a company like Degica or Playism should be all over this.

    I think they're keeping their eyes on this, but Kaga seems reluctant to make things more complicated than a mere hobby. Hope they could persuade him.

    Maybe they could bring SRPG Studio alongside his game.

    I would be all over this if it came stateside. Deficit of production values can be forgiven because it is Fire Emblem's creator (also free, I guess).

    I can´t read japanese, so I tried this link in which you copy paste the website url and choose the languages, japanese to english(or whatever you like). After the translation the website pops up in your browser.
    http://free-website-translation.com/
    It is not perfect to read but the content is understandable.

    Official English version for the first game is coming! :incline:: http://zeeksweb.blog120.fc2.com/blog-entry-164.html

    - Localization is being done by some non-Japanese publisher.
    - Probably coming in next year, if everything goes well.
    - It will be a paid game unlike the original Japanese version, because of the cost of localization.
