What can we do to localize Shining Blade

Another Japan-only modern Shining title for the PSP.

So if anyone wants to play this game then they either need to be able to read Japanese or hack the game.

That's a shame.

Yes, sure. It's Sad (As it's Sad Wind never been ported in west, even if the story was butchered, I am happy that Tears X Wind tell the story of Wind)

The game I really would like to play too is Shining Wind X, it's a 2D classical Shining force game similar to the gaiden and a game who tell us what's happen between Tears X Wind and Blade.

What a pity it was only a mobile game, I would love a remake of this game for Vita and PS3 using the gameplay from Blade with the battle upgrade of Ark


but japanese is not entirely needed to play Shining blade. I don't Talk japanese but was able to understand and finish the game.
The game is in japanese, but the whole storyline is fully voiced and use mostly simply language.

My only knowlegde of japanese came from anime I watch and I nearly understand thee whole storyline and most of the character side stories

The fact I knew half of the character helped, it's true (I have played Tears and watched Tears X Wind), but I think the game can be understand by every people who watch often anime with sub.

I have much more difficulty to understand the storyline of Shining Ark who have less voiced part and more complexe language level (but from what I understand, It's very dull and uninteresting, far worse than Blade)

Unfortunately I doubt there would be a big demand for this type of game outside of Japan even if people had more money to spend.

So we'd best just forget about it unless you are a huge fan of these games. There's nothing we can do.

have you tried contacting groups that specialize in localization?

there is one going on right now ( till September 13) and they are doing a poll for which games to coe over. One is Shining Hearts.
http://operationrainfall.com/vote-to-lo ... ami-polls/
even if shining hearts doesn't win, the poll information goes to sega for future reference...... we could try bringing shining force into exhistance again this way.

maybe a place like this would be the place to go to.

It's probably best just to find something else to support Kaya. I am sure there are lots of games worth supporting. The Shining series, sadly, isn't one of them. Time will tell I guess.

just curious, if shining force isn't worth supporting like you say it is, when why are you staying here (as in this site) and supporting it? I have hope, it will take time, but no matter what I will never give up.

and as Shining blade is a very good game (just too easy like ROTDD) and Ark is a good game too, the series merit to be supported

That's a good question. I guess old habits die hard. I used to be a really hardcore Sega fan so sticking around just became second nature I guess. I still like to keep an eye on things even though the Sega I knew and loved died with the Dreamcast.

I understand why Sega made Neo. I just wish they hadn't called it Shining Force. Neo and Exa will never compare to SF1-2-3 and STHA and Wisdom for me (not to mention Shining Rogue AKA Landstalker). Hopefully one day Sega will make a true 3D Shining Force game. The intellectual property has a lot of potential IMO and that potential is just going to waste on action/RPGs and portable games, although Blade seems like a step in the right direction compared to the abomination that was Neo.

You seem like a nice person Kaya so take my advice: Find something that's not dead to support. For me that game is World of Warcraft until something better comes along. At least I know it's not going anywhere for a while.

The game is now fully translated by cyber akuma, it's would be cool is somone could contact him and asking him if he is ok to use his translation for doing a translation patch.

I know Stormyu said he would work on Force feather first, but Force feather translation isn't finished, the one of Blade is. It would be cool to make Blade before while wanting the translation of Force Feather.

And Blade is also a better game than Force Feather

Alternatively, it wouldn't be a bad idea to sort a game script for the main SFC site until an actual translation patch is worked on.

Not gonna happen, its all about the sales and most Westerners wouldn't give this game a chance even if it was good. SEGA does seem to localize their games more than other companies but I still don't see it happening.

I think that someone should make a guide to help translate the town's and battle system. There shouldn't be much more needed... similar to the guide for Shining Force Feather. It's extremely unlikely that there will a US release of any of the PSP games.
