    Default Any update? Shadowrun

    Has there been any news regarding the translation of the Mega Cd game Shadowrun? Been wanting to play this!

    There don't seem to have been any updates for over two years. Last I knew, the team said they're still working on it in principle, but had turned to other projects until various showstopping bugs were resolved.

    That was 2+ years ago, and I know of no updates since then. So, not an abandoned project, and the hacker has publicly vowed that it will never be canceled, which is great...

    ...but it has been seven years since the Shadowrun Mega CD translation was announced, so it's understandable that people get confused impressions about the project's status. Seven years is a long time.

    Thank you for the explanation. A few projects like this in the past have eventually been completed seemingly out of nowhere. Been wanting to play this game for so long!

    Join the Club. The Mega CD version is 'said' to be the best. TBH I've given up hope this project will ever be finished. I so wished for 3X3 translation too on the Mega CD.

    one of the best 3D shooting games available

    I had waited a while for the rent-a-hero translation. The guy was committed to seeing it complete, though from what I remember he disappeared and the project was taken over and eventually finished.

    Someone has posted a letís play on YouTube where they translate the game as they play through. With a few videos running several hours each, youíll need a lot of time to get through it.

    3X3 EYES was one of the best RPGs of the 16-bit era. I so adore that game. Had awesome graphics too, that didn't look like a subpar SMS game (Burai, Fhey Area, Funky Horror Band etc). Only Eternal Blue was better. A translation would take faaaar too long though, even a "professional" company would take years to do it. Not as bad as a Eiyuu Densetsu Sora no Kiseki or others in the series, but still books and books of text.

    I have always wanted to do a LUNAR translation. The English readers of the world deserve a far better version of that magical game. Same for Eternal Blue, but that would be an epic challenge.

    I wouldnít mind a Shin Megami Tensei translation. The Mega CD version looks the best and the work in terms of translation has already been done.

    Found this post per chance.

    really nice find

    I hope this means that the same team that translated Sakura Wars is doing it!

    Curious why one of the developers who mentions appears banned the Resetera forum.
