< report >Though this doesn't deserve a serious answer, I'll give it one anyway...

There'd be no point in translating RQ at the current moment in time; there's an unspecified amount of DLC content planned for it and they've only just begun rolling it out.

< report >Yes, there's actually a group translating it, I just added it into the database. There's only one translator though who will do something in the absence of the original translator, so it'll go rather slow.

< report >Well, guess that proves me wrong. I still think you should wait for all of the DLC though, who knows how much stuff they'll change/add. Admittedly they probably won't make any changes to the existing scenario, but it might make hacking it prove more difficult if you have to keep updating what version you're working on? I dunno.

Also, you guys should really at least translate Rance 6 before this game, if you ask me. That said, RQ is significantly shorter than R6, so if you don't want to do the series in order I guess it'd be next up after all of the really short ones (everything except Kichikuou and R6 basically, lol). RQ has sort of a fandisc element to it though so I think it'd be best to do the rest before it still, though.Last modified on 2011-09-04 at 16:14

< report >As you say about the DLC, they'll most likely not remove anything already existing, since that would only be stupid. But I honestly don't think it'll be hard to translate any DLC if it shows up. Hopefully it'll just add a new file instead of patching the existing one.

Since most people actually want newer stuff we're going with Rance Quest now, but when it's done, we jump back to where we were before and continue from there. So sadly, Rance 6 will be the last one in order. If we had more translators than the one we have now, we could have made Rance 6 at the same time though, but since we don't, you'll have to wait for the time to come. Sorry for that.

< report >lol, well I've already played Rance 6 in Japanese (and loved it), I was just making a suggestion. However you want to do it is cool too, I just think Rance 6 is a great game so it'd be cool for more people to be exposed to it.

< report >Just little off-topic about the order, person who hasn't played all of the previous games can't enjoy RQ as person who has would (damn, it has at least one character from each, also many Kichikuou characters were added to canon). On the other hand, it really is short (only thing that makes it "long" is even bigger need for level-grinding than in Rance 6), but even despite this fact I personally would put the priority on the previous ones. Just saying, it would save many people from the situation I put myself in when I played Sengoku Rance about two years ago, I got Maria, Leila and others for reinforcements and hadn't any clue who the hell they are (neither I knew who Chaos and Sill are). Considering RQ is practically based on references and old ofaces, it will be confusing hell for people who played only 7, maybe 1 and 2.

< report >I'd say that it should still be okay, most people played the prequel already, so it's not like in the case Sengoku was translated and there were 6 games worth of information skipped in a row. You've played Sengoku now and you know the basic story.Last modified on 2011-09-07 at 05:49

< report >pendelhaven: Well, not quite, there were some characters from previous titles here and there (mainly girls from Custom and Lia with Leazas troops) but RQ is one huge get together from all of them.

Hmm, true enough. On another note, hopefully whole series will be translated when Helman Hen will be out, it would be a pity to know this Patton first ('cause it's clear who's the leader of that uprising).

< report >An unrelated question: since according to #14 this is short, why is the game listed as 'Very Long'? Even including gameplay time, is it 50+ hours?

Just checking to make sure.

Well I did leave it running in the background at time but I think you can reasonably says that it's a very long game.
