Game Name: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch - Lost Colors Developer/Publisher: Bandai Namco Games Release: 03/27/08 Genre: Visual Novel Does it have lots of text? Yes but Eternal Dreamer translated quite a bit but has since stopped (sadly) and some of his translation made it into a patch. http://code-geass-lost-colors-translation.yolasite.com/ Why I don't think this will come out in the West? Anime games generally do not get much attention in the west even if the anime itself is popular especially visual novels of said anime. It has had 8 years to come to the west back when Code Geass was still quite popular, it is doubtful it will come out after its popularity has diminished and is no longer fresh for many. What is it about? It is somewhere in between season 1 and season 2 of Code Geass, and basically a what if an amnesiac person named Rai suddenly appears at Lelouch's school and passes out. Lelouch and his crew (student council) decide to accept him into their school despite Lelouch's protest. Find out more about yourself and those around you in this visual novel with several paths and endings. I believe it is 16-18 hours long but as I said before quite a bit has been translated already. Official synopsis: The game begins with a mysterious young man stumbling onto the grounds of Ashford Academy and encountering members of the Student Council before collapsing. After being asleep for several days, he awakens and is met by the entire Student Council Milly, Lelouch, Shirley, Suzaku, Rivalz, Nina and Kallen and Lelouch's younger sister the handicapped Nunally. Lelouch immediately demands to know who the young man is, at which point Milly scolds him for asking for someone's name before giving his own. After introductions, Lelouch again demands the young man's name, at which point the youth reveals he is suffering from Memory Loss. He can just barely remember his name ('Rai' by default). Lelouch recommends calling the authorities, but Milly decides to accept Rai into Ashford Academy as a new student, allowing him to stay in the school clubhouse to boot. Lelouch is shocked at this, but Milly says she'd feel bad about just dumping someone who's so dazed and confused. Most of the Student Council backs Milly and Lelouch reluctantly backs down, knowing how stubborn Milly can be. Rai himself attempts to refuse, not wanting to be a burden, but Milly insists. Rai tries to press the issue, and in return Milly says he can pay her back by helping with the Student Council. Thus begins Rai's life at Ashford Academy. The two versions of the game are almost identical, sharing the same four routes (the Geass Route, Brittanian Army Route, Order of the Black Knights Route and Ashford Academy Route) but also having one unique route each (the Japanese Liberation Front Route for the PSP and Blue Moon Route for the PS2). Which route Rai follows depends on which characters he interacts with the most, along with decisions he might make. For example, interacting a lot with Suzaku during the prologue eventually has Suzaku invite him to meet with the Experimental Unit, which can lead to Rai joining the Brittanian Army. On the other hand, spending time with Kallen has her decide to recruit Rai into the Order of the Black Knights. There are also several routes available within the chosen route. For example, the Brittanian Army route can have Rai remain part of the Experimental Unit, join the Purebloods Unit led by Jeremiah Grottwield and Villetta Nu or even join Princess Cornelia's Royal Guards. For the PSP version Rai can opt to break ranks with the Black Knights and defect to the Japanese Liberation Front. The PS2 exclusive Blue Moon route can have Rai become closer to and eventually romance various characters like Nunally, Kaguya, even Lelouch himself. Popularity in Japan: Sold about 72,030 units in the same year it was released. So I am going to go out on a limb and say it was not very popular. Where I got info: http://www.vgchartz.com/game/18535/code-geass-hangyaku-no-lelouch-lost-colors/Japan/ Screenshots: Box Art: Videos: Why I think it needs to be translated? It is a visual novel of a popular (my personal fav) anime and by having this translated we have a whole other story entirely. We do not have to be tied to anything considering our character is a blank slate so we have several routes we can go through. Although it says 16-18 hours for the complete game I have already gotten more then that just from 1-3 routes, thats how enjoyable it is to me. Here is to hoping someone picks this up again. What I can do to help: Honestly, all I can think I would be able to do is test it for you and discuss the games content with you. Otherwise I have nothing else to give, sorry .
