    (This has been cancelled due to the forthcoming PC localization, just leaving it here for posterity.)

    For anyone who's curious, iwakura productions' first project was Castle Shikigami and Ougon Musou Kyoku.


    The Silver Case is the first part of the aptly-named Kill The Past series, which includes Flower, Sun, and Rain(PS2/DS) and Killer7(GC, 'PS2').


    This was a real Suda 51 Trip, in short. We've extracted the files and are working on IDing the script, but there's every indication this is gonna take a while. Still, I love this game, and hopefully you all will too.

    Wow, thanks a lot :D
    I never heard about this game before, but it looks very cool and unique; and I love visual novels in the vein of Famicom Detective II, and with the Suda twist, color me interested :)
    Looking forward for the translation :)

    As you all hopefully know, this is being OFFICIALLY LOCALIZED FOR THE PC. :D

    As such, iwakura.p is officially withdrawing interest in this project. So I sincerely wish Playism and GHM the best of luck.I can't wait.

    Even though Fire Emblem If was being localized to US fans were still translating the game knowing full well it was going to be censored to high heavens and I'm grateful for all the fan work that was put into making sure we got the purest and untainted experience we deserve.

    Not saying this will be the same case but fan translations arent entirely pointless even if its going to be localized officially.

    True, but in this case... haha, a fan translation would be kind of pointless. What we got is a flawless version and puts the PS1 release to shame. If anyone wanted to try and retrofit the script onto the PS1 version, I'd be all for it, but that's a lot of work.
