Is there some Shining Force II retranslation?

Postby Trovador » Mon Nov 19 2018 4:58pm

Since you guys retranslated Shining Force: The Legacy of the Gods, I was wondering if there is a retranslation from Shining Force 2. Or is Sega's original translation that good, so it doesn't need to be translated again?

The translation is really good, I think 95% of the text are literal translation, so thats why dont have any retranslation.
Most changes are:
-from the storytellers text in Mitula shrine that talks about lucifer (a 3rd king of devil who fought zeon and dark sol, in english translation was replaced by dark dragon)
- Zeon is called king of king of devils, not just king of devils.
- Names changes.
thats it!

Granted that change of Lucifer to Dark Dragon is a big f*ck up with the series continuity that confused the hell out of me for years all because of religious nonsense, but once you're aware of it then it's not too hard to simply read one's name as the other when playing through the standard translation.

Honestly, I'm surprised they got away with using the word "devil" so prominently, probably thanks in part to the game being for Genesis instead of SNES since Sega didn't seem nearly as strict about censorship as Nintendo back then. A few times, sure, but the word is scattered all throughout the game constantly, which makes me feel like other games would've replaced it with something a little bit lighter.
