    Tales of Graces Fan Translation Project

    [​IMG]

    Tales fans rejoice! A team of translators and hackers, whom you may be familiar with: both Tempus and Aaron who led the Fatal Frame 4 patch, have stepped up to the plate to bring you Tales of Graces, the newest installment of the Tales of series on the Nintendo Wii. They have gotten very far, already having a bit more then 1/5th of the translations done as we speak. Visit their website where you can find out the progress of the patch, occasional news posts, and Live-Chat with the developers so you know what is going on. So keep a close eye on their website for the inevitable release of Tales of Graces.

    This is awesome, but they should really bring more Tales games to the western audience. Everyone here loves it enough.

    Apparently this game has the best "Tales of" battle system to date so I'm really excited about this!
    Good luck guys!

    Great to hear someones working on it... From all Tales games that came out lately I always thought that this one looked best, because of the art, the characters and the combat (which looks even faster then other Tales games with the 360-dodging and fast combos...)!

    And the site looks really nice as well, which shows, that there is dedication to the project.

    It may take a while till we`ll get to play this in english but it`s nice to have a progress-bar on the webside, so we can follow the progress of the project!

    EDIT: Quick Trailer of the Battle System:

    Wow, I'm so happy that I might be able to understand this amazing game! [​IMG]
    The site seems really professional (that's promising). But I'm surprised they managed to get that address.
    As far as I can tell, this game changes a few things. There's the battle system, but also the map screens seem less like a huge representative character on a map, but more like a real area, like a huge outdoor level of the game (worst explanation of what I mean ever, go watch a video). Also, the skits have full torso portraits, with some odd images overlaid for the funny expressions, instead of the static faces. And many of the cutscenes seem to use motion capture for the animation, rather than simple animations (although Symphonia 2 did use that too). Looks to be good!

    Fantastic news, thanks to everyone involved in the translation project for doing this!
    So glad to see a RPG coming to Wii.

    @ Centrix, you can add a Youtube video like this:

    Let's say I want to implement this Youtube video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeoXS2oeQtQ&feature=sub

    You have to copy the bold part and put it between *youtube]*/youtube] tags to work (replace * with [)
    Like this:

    *youtube]VeoXS2oeQtQ*/youtube]

    (replace * with [)

    This is the result:

    Sad that it seems really unlikely to come out in the US...I'd heard it was going to come out in Europe at least, but that was some time ago and I can't really find any confirmation. Ah well, at least we'll get to try this translation eventually thanks to Tempus and everyone else working on it.

    Awesome. I've always wanted to try this game but I know myself... I'd stop pretty early on if it was in Japanese, so I never burnt it to a disc. =P I'll be eagerly awaiting this.

    I'm guessing that means you've not played Tales of Symphonia? You definitely should do, it's one of the best (the GC one, not the Wii one).

    I agree the GC Symphonia was better, but what's wrong with the Wii one?

    The Wii one had a bad story line (even for Tales), some of the worst characters I've ever seen in a game, and some pretty rancid voice acting. Graphics were pretty crap too. The gameplay and stuff still worked well enough but it was just so incredibly hampered by terrible characters and presentation issues. Within 5 minutes of playing you'll learn that the main character is annoying, whiney, and the biggest pussy you'll ever see.
