Project Updates VNTS (All)

VN Translation Status (12/1/2015)

Written by Zakamutt

I blame being on time today for reading through -fault milestone one-… wait, no, that was actually me procrastinating writing that CLANNAD article. I recommend reading fault ms1 by the way, really liked it… aaaand to get back to the fluff we’ll blame it on me playing through Eversion instead. Sure kept me awake.

Moderately obnoxious reminder: if you want your updates fast (usually, unless I couldn’t be arsed for a day or two), the new official fuwanovel twitter has you covered. Anything I’m too lazy to cover here will be there. I’ll note that other people do have access as well, so not all of the tweets are mine. Just most of them.

This is more or less a copy of a post the user VNTS does on 4chan’s /jp/ board weekly, with some edits, potential additional entries and such. Entries in green have progressed since last week; this week, we saw progress on 11 projects and the release of a patch for the otomege Dot Kareshi.

Harvest December – 3DS ports being released

Interesting info on Harvest December: unlike some Japanese ports it seems they won’t be released painfully piecemeal.

Mamatoto is 100% translated but Arunaru’s waiting for image editor to get back to him or something (may it get released already so I don’t have this non-VN to deal with in VN translation status…)

The Rose Guns Days progress report comes after a decent while of no updates, nice. As of current they have said there will be no patch until they have both episodes 3 and 4 done.

Subahibi still alive, LB!EX still no progress for whatever reason.

  • Looks like 2015 will be a good year for us visual novel readers, assuming there are no major delays. The new titles I’m the most excited about are Shiny Days (confirmed 2015 release), Sumaga (in editing), KoiChoco (in final stages of editing) and Clover Days (might have to wait a little longer for this one, but I’m optimistic). As for sequels of VNs I’m currently reading, there’s Rewrite Harvest Festa and the new chapters of Rose Guns Days. I’ve completed 3 routes in Rewrite and had to put RGD season 1 on hold to focus on other stuff, but as a fan of 07th Expansion’s work I’m determined to read them all.

    I would also love to see Kud Wafter and Little Busters EX coming out this year, but those I’m more skeptical about, since there was very little significant progress in 2014. Let’s just wish for a miracle.

    • For Kud Wafter we really do need a miracle.
      For LBEx will they seriously not cover that 2% this year?(my only guess is that they are re-reading they’re entire patched game…)

  • I might try Koisuru Natsu no Last Resort after finish downloading SakuSaku though not anytime soon.

    Anyway something outside the list that I want to see is IroSekai and Hatsuyuki Sakura.

  • is Seinarukana also gonna be coming out in steam? JAST USA should really consider bringing their games on digital distribution, they’re quite difficult to get outside the USA, when i saw Romanesque on greenlight, albeit the H-stuff were removed, i’m still quite pleased, this is a step in the right direction for JAST, can’t wait to get it

  • i hope the definitive patch for dot kareshi be released soon ;;
    since mine has a few bugs and the text get out the screen when the dialog is big
