Sega Japan would like to translate Final Conflict

Postby Ashley » Fri Jan 10 2014 2:32pm

So, this just happened. Yosuke Okunari, the guy who handles Sega's retro re-releases and remakes in Japan, has changed his profile pic to Final Conflict, indicating that it'll be the next Game Gear title to appear on 3DS Virtual Console in Japan. I tweeted him to say thank you and this was his rather surprising reply..

Yep. They did a translation a year or two ago on 360 and PS3.

You know, companies have used fan translations before. Perhaps someone should contact them and let them know a fan translation exists?

Good luck getting a hold of her, through PMs at least. I've had one in my outbox to her for the better part of a month, possibly more.

I hope somebody can get a hold of Moogie, or someone else with an accurate (or close to it) translation of this... I've never played FC and I've been wanting to ever since I've heard of the game. :(

Tare: if you need to get hold of Moogs and PMs aren't working, try a Facebook message.

This is pretty exciting.

BTW, I tweeted him a couple of days ago:

@Tarethen
@okunari What about fan translations? #FinalConflict #3DS - 10 Jan

@Tarethen I know the existence of those software violating our copyright. But it is unrelated to my work.

Yep, I wouldn't waste your breath asking a Japanese company to acknowledge fan translations. It's such a legally murky area that they wouldn't risk being seen to approve of them.

The reason it was mentioned, however, is that companies have, in the past, utilized fan translations for their localizations, Ys: The Oath in Felghana for the PSP and PC being one of them. So, there is precedent for this sort of thing.

XSeed is a bit different from Sega, though. XSeed likes to give fans what they want.

Sega likes to shit all over their fans all the time.

And XSeed is a US company. It makes a huge difference.

Well, there's always the hope that Sega would pull their heads out of their asses.

Not likely at all, I know.

Unless it's Sonic, Sega doesn't give a rats behind~

They can't even keep themselves from f*cking up Sonic, so it's debatable whether they care about that IP, either.

I don't know why anyone was optimistic here. It's clear from his response that we are THE SATAN. (also, how is it unrelated?)
