    Extra(s)
    Community member @zombone created this nifty 3DS Theme based on Terry's Wonderland 3D, in his own excitement for this project's completion. You'll find the links below, and a preview image! I believe the difference in the links, are the backing tracks and sounds (made from a request here). Thanks again @zombone !

    Yessss so glad to see progress being made. You are literally my hero right now. I can't wait!

    Edit: Also, I'd love to help with any retexturing you may need done. Things like shop signs. I like photoshop and while I've never really released anything I always strive to keep the original feeling and design. All I'd need is the actual English to put on said textures.

    There is interest in doing the other games, But we will see how things go with the team after 1 is done.

    Sweeeeeeeet! I've been waiting for a fanlation of any of the Monsters games on 3DS! Can't wait either!

    Also, wasn't this project under wraps? I mean, nothing wrong on looking for aditional help, but I'm a bit worried Square Enix might want to put a stop to this if it becomes too widespread.

    Regardless of that, best of luck to the team involved!

    I'll definitely be watching this. I've seen this project come up for years with nothing and I already like where this is going! The monsters games will probably never get localized considering it's been 4 years already.

    Awesome, cant wait. Really hope Square Enix doesn't catch on though.
    Will you be using the old monster names or the new ones?

    Technically speaking, the old names (ex "Goopi" instead of being named "Muddy Hand) was due to space constraints and not their actual names. In fact, if you catch a wild Goopi in DWM and dont name it, the game suggests "MH" and you can guess what that means.

    I was hoping you'd say new names but if they don't fit then it'll have to be old

    I'm pretty sure it will be the new names; Bortz was just saying that the 'old names' from the original DWM were to due to space constraints in their official English translations and that their names were always e.g. 'Muddy Hand' in every other instance.

    I completely misread that post then, thanks for clarifying. I much prefer the new names but most fan translations use the old ones.

    Good luck with this project guys! :D Thanks for doing this! Also will you be using the newer terms for spells, (e.g Frizz, Crack) or the older ones, (Firebal etc.) ?

    May God bless you on your journey! (and also save your progress :P)

    If there's anything I can possibly do to help just let me know. I've got a haxxed 3DS with cfw and would be glad to test for you in case you need to do quick checks to see if something particular works. Not too handy with Japanese but I could do grunt work for some of the more basic stuff, too. I'm also a grammar freak and would be more than happy to proofread and edit as needed. Anything to help get this done!

    This looks like it is coming really far,and I am very thankful. Based on the pictures attached to the OP, there seem to be two fonts you are working with, so will will the more visually appealing (or popular) version be used or there be a patch file for each font? Personally, I like the bold-like text better.
