    Given the readme, I think this might be a joke translation?

    not sure what to think, tried the demo and it certainly is on english. I'm guessing limited translation after 1st town? auto black-screen of death followed by a happy april's first message? i guess i'll have to try it later :D

    This. This is what all true tales fans dream of. The chance to experience this trainwreck is... well It's pretty sweet. I know I'll regret playing tempest later but till then I am letting my ds charge with baited breath and Thanking the tenacity of those behind the translation.

    Throughhim, StorMyu... Thank you and how could you... The land of a thousand groaning fanboys await me! Till then I will hold my face palms high in respect for your efforts as I know this could not have been an easy feat for either of you.

    exactly. out of all the games a translation team could have worked on; tempest was the crowned victor. it's release today just adds to the greatness of it all.

    so, it's kinda like: "you wanted us to translate another Tales game? don't you?... Here you have it... play this piece of shit" :lol:

    anyway... thanks a lot Absolute Zero for another great translation. You guys are awesome! ;)

    I hate April Fools.

    I really can't tell if everyone is in on this, or it's actually translated.

    Apparently it is.

    But they might as well have translated Elmo's Farm Spelling for the NES or something.

    Lol, was I truly the only one who liked this? Although, how many years it's been when this game was released? It was a time when I was taking every single thing that was even a little bit of Japanese thing. Now? Ugh... Oh, those teens... I hope a meteor will come down from the sky and hit to each of them and end my suffer.

    Still, it's nice(?) to finally understand the story, so I'm trying this out (when I get bored with MH3U)!
