This release will let English-speaking Dragon Force fans understand the flow of gameplay, from navigating menus to conducting armies on the field to managing domestic affairs. What it does not do is translate the story. One out of eight storyline scenarios is complete and awaiting insertion, and a second is partially translated, but given the project’s size it’s clear we’re going to need a lot more translation help if a fully English Dragon Force II is ever to see the light of day.
In addition to attracting more volunteer Japanese-to-English translators, we hope this release will spark a healthy fan community around a game that definitely deserves a cult following. Users new to Saturn emulation will want to pay very close attention to the readme and head over to our Dragon Force II project forum with the inevitable questions. Our readme will become a living document as it’s updated with frequently asked questions and answers.
Let’s leave you with a forty minute presentation highlighting the game’s beautiful music and artwork alongside the gameplay translation in action, plus a story preview for one of the eight scenarios and our QA tester recruitment drive video."
