    Game name
    Daikoukai Jidai IV: Rota Nova ( also known as Uncharted Water IV )

    Release date
    March 2, 2006

    Game info
    You could play as a trader, killing pirates or become a pirates. There are also treasure hunt and other feature. This game takes place in the whole world map of earth.
    It is a strategy game, trader simulation.
    I don't think this game will ever be released in USA, the only translated series is uncharted water I & II, uncharted water III and IV in pc version is never translated.

    ( really hard to find the screenshots @_@ )
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/ds/file/930295/50269 ( English translation in .txt files for psp though, but i think it almost the same )

    This game is the next episode of Uncharted Water series. Uncharted water I and II is released in PC version and also Snes version, and it also translated into English. Unfortunately uncharted water III and IV is only released in japan version, and i think in Korea and Chinese version also exist. And then the IV is released for PSP and DS.

    Sorry I cannot help in anything >..<
    I could only give morale support [​IMG]

    I hope someone will pick this game for a translation project ^^

    Thank You Before ^^

    There is a Chinese translation as I recall (which would be good to pull apart) and I also recall pulling apart the game for someone a quite a while back.

    Can I also suggest Sea Trader - Rise of Taipan for the GBA (around 815 number wise).

    Hi misterious (and everyone else).
    Just letting you know that I've made the decision to start translating Daikoukai Jidai 'Gaiden'.
    If anyone is interested, please let me know on this thread =)

    Not familiar with that one, but I've played through all of the first campaign for Rota Nova. The DR version is superb because the bottom screen map and portability lend a itself to what is basically meant to be a PC game.

    I'd love to give another crack at a translation, but the game is huge, and there are a few branching conversation paths that make it even harder.
