    Hey guys.
    There have been several updates from Romsstar on Facebook over the past month or so but nothing to report on for Lost Evolution unfortunately.

    "As for other updates:
    Some holidays are coming up next week, which I intend to use for some updates, so I'm confident I should have something by the next week.

    That's all I can say for now, sorry folks, but this is a temporary situation which will resolve within weeks for sure :)

    Best, Romsstar"

    So we may see an update in the next few weeks, fingers crossed but I can't imagine there is much in terms of progress to report on just yet!

    It's been a while since I've checked this page. It's still not done it seems. How far is it anyway? I don't have Facebook so I can't check there for any percentage or chapter or what is done and what isn't.

    Anyone why can give me an answer, would make me apriciate the time they put onto looking into how far it is.

    Heya guys.
    This project is NOT dead. Romsstar and others are workin on it.
    Also, I did some progress by my own, since i'm not belonged to OpDecoded team. I just customized somethings in the rom, but only with the intro.
    Let's cheer for them ^_^

    Having a facebook account isn't required to check the progress on their page. It's public for all eyes.

    Good luck on your progress. Lemme know if you want help with anything.

    Could the development team or the ones that are working on the translation share their twitter accounts;Because of the advertising on Social media?

    Neither of the Lost Evo translation team members use twitter much if at all. Facebook is your best bet.

    Well it's forcing me to make an account. So technically Facebook forces you to have an account. But I'm in protest against them.

    It first suggests it, but when you start scrolling down it forces you to if you'd wish to see it. Screenshot_20180726-154600_Chrome. Screenshot_20180726-154434_Chrome. Screenshot_20180726-154600_Chrome. Screenshot_20180726-154434_Chrome.

    That's strange. I can view it fine in incognito mode.

    I get the same thing you do when I'm on mobile. Try not viewing it in mobile mode?

    Hello all. There has been an update on Facebook for those who aren't following the group or checking for updates very often.
    I will summarise for you:
    • Romsstar has had health issues for a while
    • Their primary project (Decode) could possibly be ready for release before the end of 2018
    • Lost Evolution will be delayed further
    So is anybody else looking forward to Survive in 2019?

    I mean it is nice to have another Digimon game. I am really happy that it is coming to PC too, but I wish Digimon Story games were on PC too more then this one.

    Good people should never get sick. Poor Romsstar. I hope they get better. Even if i have to wait another 6 more years for Lost Evolution I will wait until the end of time for it. Thank you for the update! I really appreciate it since I dont do social media.^_^

    Hello all. There has been another update but it's more bad news it seems.

    To summarise:
    - Very little chance of any progress updates for the foreseeable future.
    - Worst case scenario, if the projects have to be dropped, they will release whatever progress they have made. I DO NOT know if this also includes Lost Evolution.
    - Best case scenario, work will continue at some point, but don't expect anything within the next year. I've obviously just made that "year" estimation up, but considering Lost Evolution is not the primary project I can't see it being ready before that.

    Funny thought: For those who were around and remember when Operation Decoded took over the project, they made a big announcement which got everybody super-hyped. Especially since they said "We estimate a release by the end of 2016" - Is this target still likely to be achieved? :D

    A more interesting thought: With the amount of time a fan translation of Lost Evolution has been in the making, one could have learned the Japanese language to a level far beyond that required to play the game without translation!

    On a serious note, I wish Romsstar a speedy recovery

    Here is the unfortunate update on facebook from a couple days ago:


    And here are some important replies he made in the comments:

    Summery: His eyesight is still bad, may not get better, and currently there's no other translator on the project, so he may release it as-is in the next 6 months despite it almost-but-not-quite being done. So a translator would be very appreciated.
