No, I’m not abandoning Fragment for this or any of my other currently on-going projects.
But this one just irks me, I loved it when God Eater Burst got a stateside (and later european) release and sucked it up like candy.
Well, this time around we don’t seem to be as lucky with an english localization, so I am officially starting a God Eater 2 translation here.
The technical work for dumping / reinserting data has already started, and a working dumper already exists (took me a few hours to get all the code required for it going).
Like with every other project that involves japanese to english localization, I am at a loss when it comes to the actual translation, but given the big success of this titles predecessor I’m positive that we will be able to find one or two people willing to provide their help as translators.
If you feel like being part of a project like this, drop a comment with some reference material and your contact information, I will be getting in touch with you.
I will keep you guys posted, as usual.
EDIT: Annnnnndd the files are up on Github.
Transifex Cloud Translation Platform coming sometime this weekend. So get ready to work translators.
EDIT2: And I decided to host a filtered dump (containing only the parts we need to translate) on my private DropBox as well. This way translators will have a easier time finding the files they really have to be interested in.
