Do You Think Dracu-Riot Translation Will Be Released This Century?


Recommended Posts

interesting story this one. started out in the hands of another translator, a fan translation and has switched hands i think twice? or maybe im just mistaking one of the significant additions to the dracu riot english translation saga from a different developer.

 

i know its now in the hands of sekai project... i think.

 

to tell you the truth, i have no clue whats going on with it. i only bring this up because i got a random video from youtube with a scene from a yuzusoft vn.

 

so....... thoughts? :mare:

I trust that Nekonyan will eventually release it.  If nothing else, they have a much better relationship with Yuzusoft than Sekai Project had.  People are pretty spoiled these days, when it comes to VN translations... it was normal only to get one or two a year when I first started playing, and now it isn't uncommon for ten to get released in a single year.

I honestly don't know what is holding it up, since the final version we handed over to SP was pretty much done as well or better than most professional translations.  For all I know, SP refused to hand it over and the two companies are fighting over it behind the scenes.

Here is from Nekonyan's blog late March regarding Dracu Riot. So a HD remaster seems to be what is holding it up at the moment.

"Wow, this list got pretty short, huh? Wait I think I’m missing one…  Oh, right! I guess this is a good place to start for today.  Dracu Riot, huh.  
You guys have been waiting very patiently for a really long time for this game, and we know you want to know what the holdup is. We’ve seen the comments don’t worry. There IS a reason for it, however, and we can finally talk about it now!
The truth is… Dracu Riot is getting a full HD Remaster and re-release in JP as well as in English!
Fortunately, Yuzusoft had the original super high res assets, so we’re going to be working on getting the entire game rebuilt from the ground up with high res assets and a new UI. It will be on our Unity engine and receive a total upgrade, including the same features you see in newer Yuzusoft projects, voice bookmarking, and more! Meow is currently working on the Clover Days port, once that is complete, he will begin the work of porting and implementing the new features for Dracu Riot!
Hopefully, this will make it worth the wait for you!"

Well as long as Nekonyan manage to juggle their remaining licenses in a reasonable timeframe, it should be possible to see them released Dracu Riot in this century. Even if they didn't manage to release Dracu Riot in the near future, Nekonyan still has 78 and half years to release it at this century. That said, you don't really need to wait for Nekonyan to finally release it because there's already leaked unedited patch of Dracu Riot, albeit without the new feature that the HD version offer (I'll assume that Yuzusoft will add flowchart and the improvement in sprite mode into Dracu Riot HD version).

NekoNyan might want to rethink their PR strategy (inasmuch as a cash-poor company like a VN translation outfit can afford such a thing as a PR strategy).  Someone who's interested in DracuRiot didn't know that they'd announced the cause of the delay four months ago.  That's kind of the whole point of PR: to make sure interested people, and folks who might be interested, know what's going on and remember / look forward to the release.

Haha, when I joined this board, new translations were so rare and there were numerous VNs dropped halfway through and never saw light of day

Atleast now with official companies something being dropped is rare and we get quite a few releases per year

 

on the other hand FanTLs are getting very rare now due them joining the official companies i guess?

It's not just the sprite mode and technical marvel of the flowcharts: Kobuichi and Muririn have improved a lot as artists over the course of time.

I would bet on Yuzusoft commissioning brushed up (if not fully redrawn) CGs and Sprites for this remaster.

I can't believe it took this many posts to mention the HD remaster blog post. Nekonyan didn't get that memo through to the public, huh?
