    Saturn Untranslated Saturn Games: Most wanted?

    As I get better at understanding japanese, I find myself able to dig a bit deeper into some of these untranslated, text-driven titles. While I'm not totally 'there' yet, it would be interesting to get some volunteers to document some of these imports for the community.

    Now I want to know, what untranslated text-centric games for Saturn were considered among the system's best? I know many will say SF3's latter episodes but I think there's already enough interested in them to the point that they will likely be translated eventually. I would like to hunt for any exclusives that were considered essential. Many of them were already on PS1 with some being either better or worse technically and/or content-wise. But we're talking exclusives, here.

    Some that come to mind:

    -Grandia
    Considered superior in mostly technical terms to the PS1 version, also had the Digital Museum expansion which has created more demand.

    -Sakura Wars
    One of the installments did see a release stateside on PS2, yet the original remains untranslated. Often considered one of the system's quintessential hits.

    -Sentimental Graffiti
    This is another that makes up the so-called 'holy trinity' of dating sims (the other two being Memories Off and Tokimeki Memorial). I own this one as well as the Dreamcast sequel, mainly because of its popularity and influence in the genre. Like Grandia, the Saturn original which included an expansion disc, is considered the best. Look forward to exploring it eventually.

    -Tengai Makyo: The Apocalypse IV
    Another one that was well recieved in Japan but largely ignored by western gamers even now because of the series' relative obscurity in the west. I haven't played any of them myself but I always hear alot of praise for them.

    Let me know what else.

    Actually, all the SF3 Scenarios have already been translated, no need to worry about that

    Dragon Force II would be a nice addition to your list. The first one was great, and there is no reason for them not to translate it.

    Assault Suit Leynos 2

    Yeah it's perfectly playable without the translation but I want to see it anyway. Also it wouldn't be as extreme an undertaking as the RPGs and text heavy games.
