[3DS] Dragon Quest Monsters 2: English Translation


Recommended Posts

Hey there, new to the forum 
And noticed there has been an interest in translation the 3DS-Game into English. 

Recently, I notice that someone has independently started work on the translation in multiple languages here :

https://gbatemp.net/threads/translation-dragon-quest-monsters-2-iru-and-lucas-marvelous-mysterious-key-wip-v0-1.573054/  

I can reach out and see if they would be willing to post information here 
As this forum would seems like a nice resource for Dragon Quest information.

We also have no such specific restrictions on what to discuss here about it. Would love this compatable with Citra for example, but that's a no-no on GBATemp

@Plattym3  

Ah...I see

Well, I will reach out and see if they can post information and progress here. 

But it will be important to come together and assist them 

With combined Dragon Quest knowledge and experience. 

That way, the chances of a nice public release will be a reality.

The thing that stopped the previous attempt was an issue with rendering English in the text boxes, IIRC. Has this team been investigating a way around that?
Correct. We had Z6n4 on the Den's Slime Time podcast & he explained that. Been in touch with him and I know he's still stalled. Not sure how much time he's spent on it, but I imagine it like a cold case of a murder 10 years old. After a while, where do you look that you haven't done before. They did 2 other DQM games and obvisouly this one is unfortunately set up a completely different way.

Unsure if they ran across that problem yet. 

It seems like they are just focusing on translating everything but the story. 

(Monster Names, Skills, Inventory Items, etc)

Also, are there any Dragon Quest 'Discords' that are active ?

Even just a comprehensive item/stat translation would be great.
If the character name boxes are translated as well, then it wouldn't be too hard to use a story translation guide alongside the patch.

Pretty sure that's how I played the PSP digimon world game, re digitized?
