    What Is This?

    People have been clamoring for a translation of Last Ranker since it came out four years ago. Instead of waiting for hackers to overcome the technical hurdles preventing this game from being translated, I decided to just play through the game, translate all the text, and upload subtitled videos to YouTube. It's not quite as convenient as a patch, but it's (lots) better than nothing.

    Video Links

    NOTE: This forum will only show a maximum of 10 videos inline. Sorry it looks weird.
    Also, these videos are 720p, so be sure to change the quality setting if it defaults to 480p.

    Hadena-Tier Subs Warning

    I don't want to make myself out to be a professional when I'm not, so I'm adding this warning. I'm just a random otaku on the internet who also happens to be a Japanese student, not a professional translator. There are almost certainly some Hadena-tier translations The localization companies wouldn't pay someone to translate this game, so you're going to have to settle for second-best.

    What About the Items and Skills

    If you want to play along with these videos, use this spreadsheet, which contains a list of all the item and skills and their effects.

    Are You Making a Patch?

    Feel free to download the subtitle files I used to create these videos. They will make the process of creating a patch go much faster. They don't cover everything, but I'm guessing they cover 80% or more of the game's text.

    These files can be read by Aegisub.

    Enjoy the translation!

    Nicely done. If only we had a tool to insert the text now. *Hint hint* ;)

    To Englishsubs4all.

    Are you have any plan to make playable patch for this game ?

    I refrain to watch your video because I hope I have a chance to play translation version of this game someday.

    Video 11 seems to be both broken and mislinked in the OP.

    Also I'd appreciate it if you didn't inline 10 videos in a single post, it lags the hell out of my browser.


    That said, nice work, we can definitely use this.

    The link for part 11 is fixed. I also re-uploaded the video, and that seems to have fixed the freezing bug. Let me know if there are any other problems.

    But he can't hack the game himself and insert it (he's a translator, not a hacker). He was generous enough to translate it all by himself.
    Have you read the post carefully?

    Hello If you're still around here perhaps you could release some kind of a data file with the translated script and put it here and on romhacking.net. It'd help potential hackers.

    This is pretty cool.
    I wanted to do something similar in the past for some JP only games I liked, but never found the time for it since subbing and timing videos takes a lot of time and effort as well.

    And looking at those screens, your translations look better than most to me.
    I know this is already done, but if you're still around, just one small tip for future videos: you should add line breaks to the sentences that span the screen since it's easier for your audience to see the text in the middle of the screen, rather than having to read left to right for long sentences.

    Thanks for the translations. I remember when I first saw this I had to just imagine what they were saying. Must have taken a while so thanks. Is there a patch to play this in English now by the way?

    The download links are at the bottom of that first post.

    I started working on this, but I'm done for now. Translator needed. All of EnglishSubs4All's translated strings were inserted. I think it's around 50% of all of them.

    Further updates will be posted at HeroesOfLegend: http://www.heroesoflegend.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=268
