This has been out for more than a week now but,
Clannad SVN

This is the most up to date SEEN script by Baka-Tsuki, so people using the unofficial patches lurking the interwebs will benefit greatly from this. If you are one of the people who are waiting for an official release, then this is about as good as it gets until the 'official' release.

Tears To Tiara English Patch Released!

Another srpg by Leaf. If you've played Utawarerumono then you'll know what I'm talking about. Mind you that this project started on August 2008, so this English patch was released in less than 5 months!

Moonlight Works v2.0!
"It's the summer before you go away to college, and you're spending it visiting with your aunt and uncle on a small island in the Atlantic ocean. One night, while out taking pictures of the full moon, you meet a girl walking down the beach...

Moonlight Walks is an english-language visual novel. It features 21 paths to 4 endings, and original digital artwork. It takes about 15 minutes to reach one of the longer endings, and perhaps half an hour to see them all."

Seems to be one of the few English Visual Novels out there. I guess Katawa Shoujo isn't really breaking new grounds, though I guess the concept and naming convention is quite unique. Anyway, that girl looks freaky :S

Not really much of an update, but I've gotten wind of a Realta Nua CG patch. The patch seems to insert the Realta Nua CG's (which I believe numbers around 173) into specific portions of the FSN PC VN.

What regards the FSN patch it affects only the D.Bersherker Vs Shirou and Kotomone Vs Shirou last fight at Heavens Feel.My opinion is that everyone shall download this one since it takes secs to install and have two save files right before the fights. Its awesome :D

No Name Losers releases ef - Chapter 1: Miyako Miyamura!

It was more than a year and a two months ago when the ef - the first tale project was canceled due to various reasons I have long since forgotten. Some have despaired over such terrible news, but such is the fate of a visual novel translation. Many feared that all the work and progress already invested into the project would be all for naught.

One year and a week after the cancellation notice of the ef project, NNL releases Build A of the Miyako arc. Progress has also been made into most of the other arcs, most notably that of the latter tale as well. The future looks promising on this revitalized project, but only time will tell if the heavens smile upon the two...

Yeah I know this is more than two months old, but hey I never even knew the project was restarted until I found myself randomly browsing the NNL site. That (partial beta) on Shii's site is misleading since an entire arc has already been released that has been fully edited and proofread by a crack team. Oh and I also don't visit the novelnews/visual-novels site so I wouldn't have seen their posts about this anyway.

I'm not even sure if they have released a patch for F/HA, but you can check the Beasts Lair forums to see what's up.

Anyway I'm late yet again but...

NDT releases Kanon!
This patch has been around what 6+ years in the making and we here can finally enjoy some Kanon goodness in its entirety! Too many visual novels and video games to play so I doubt I'll get around to this for awhile, but enjoy it for those who can!

I know... just playing bored. I could read last pages but I hate that I would start from the start and it could take ages. So I thought someone has profile there who reads and posts there. If there is e-mail me.

it'll probably never be translated. the only doujin vn i've seen translated is haruhi to chinese. spice and wolf isn't as popular as haruhi, nor is english translation scene as big as chinese. in short, it'll probably never happen

Console VNs never have ero content due to hardware manufacturer's request if I recall correctly. Kind of makes you wonder why they have no problem using 200,000 polygons to render limbs being blown apart while banning 2d porn

Stop spamming my thread with your inane discussions!

MOON
Moon. is a Japanese adult visual novel developed by Tactics, a brand of the joint company Nexton, with elements of horror, psychology, and metaphysical content. The game was described by the development team as a "Reaching the Heart AVG." The main character, Amasawa Ikumi (one of the few female VN protagonists) joins the Fargo organization in order to learn the truth behind her mother's mysterious death. On her first day she meets Mima Haruka and Nakura Yui, two other girls who came to take back members of their family from the organization. As the three begin to undergo Fargo's outlandish and cruel training--which they pass off as "mental reinforcement"--they slowly begin to piece together the true nature of the organization and the deaths it has caused.

Sharin no Kuni Teaser Patch

And of course...

Ballad of an Evening Butterly v1.5e

Dunno how I managed to miss MOON. on my last update, Sharin no Kuni looks interesting, and Ballad of an Evening butterfly is always a good read and with a far superior script this time around!

Sharin no Kuni Himawari no Shoujo has the best plot development in the some 100 visual novels I have ever played. It's hard to make a good plot twist, but when it follows the logical development so naturally that even the hints throughout the game failed to make you recognize it, that's called pure genius. If you are going to play both Akabesoft games currently under translation, you'd want to play G-Senjou first, or else you will be very disappointed after playing Himawari no Shoujo.

In other news, I'm also eagerly awaiting Cross Channel's translation completion. Umineko has been good, but I really need something closer to Sharin no Kuni and its Wakamoto goodness.

Heh figure I'd revive this old thread with some great news...

School Days HQ is now available for preorder!

With a new partnership of Sekai Project, JAST, and Oveflow, School Days HQ will be officially released in English. You can now preorder the game at J-LIST with shipping to most international destinations.

Work has now stopped on the fan translation project of School Days by Sekai project, but 4 out of 6 routes are fully translated and is still available for download.

To put things into perspective...Sekai Project started working on School Days at around 2007. This club has yet to exist during that time. The only download Sekai project had during that time before the 1st episode release was a proof of concept demo (forgot which...man that was such a long time ago).

Fast forward 4 years later and we have 4 of 6 routes available, a desire to get the final product out by the end of the year, and an official collaboration between fan group, an official distributor, and the original makers of the game.

While certainly not the longest fan patch people have been waiting for or the most popular (anyone else remember the Kanon 57% Haeleth patch?), its by no means any less epic. All I can say is...support them!

I'm not sure about this but it seems amaterasu translations will make a translation for rewrite. At least it's on their plan to do list. I'm really interested in this visual novel but to be honest the first cg on vndb looks so horrible stupid. Well anywy that's what I wanted to say.

After almost four years of work, today the Witch Hunt release the full translation of the fourth and final episode of Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru, also known as When They Cry 4. As usual, the patch is released as a Windows installer, OS-X installer, and standalone zip archive.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni (literally ‘When the Seagulls Cry‘) is a popular murder mystery sound novel created by the authors of the equally famous Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. The story takes place in the year 1986 at a small, secluded island named Rokkenjima, owned by the head of a wealthy family. After a typhoon traps a number of visiting family members on the island, strange and deadly events start occuring.

The English fan translation of Umineko no Naku Koro ni has become well-known for having received official sanction from the original creator, Ryukishi07 of the doujin circle 07th Expansion. Having even a character in one of the episodes named after the group, the Witch Hunt were able to strike a deal with HOBIBOX to make the Japanese game available in the West through DRM-free download.

Over the course of the project the Witch Hunt have kept a very tight release schedule, releasing the translation of each episode before the following episode was released in Japan. For the last episode it took a year time before the full translation was released, the deadline eventually having been set to December 31, as 07th Expansion had announced it would then release a booklet with solutions to some of the puzzles and mysteries.

Both JAST USA and MangaGamer have delivered their year-end updates. From the JAST USA end, it looks like Saya no Uta and Hanachirasu will be sold separately, although there will be a discount for buying them together. The two games along with Sumaga are scheduled to be out before Anime Expo. Meanwhile, MangaGamer states that they’re working on a 4th hard copy game from the J-List distribution deal, which will be a game they have already released that they are trying to fix up. Furthermore, they’re also aiming for a end-of-February or beginning-of-March release for DEARDROPS, while the trial version is currently out for people to try out the game. Dengeki Stryker and Harukoi Otome are still in translation, with the former aimed at a release by the time Anime Expo comes around. As for ef – the first tale, it’s still undergoing review by NNL of the latest build from minori, which if it passes, will allow the release to proceed.

In addition to giving a progress report about MangaGamer’s manga and H-anime sections getting closer to opening and game animations to be checked arriving from minori, the official MangaGamer Twitter has also announced that they were working on acquiring two new never-before-announced titles. Unfortunately, the popular guesses of Key, TYPE MOON and Shin Koihime Musou failed to win free Internets. There’s now two hints in relation to the titles: “1) Yo dawg, we herd you like traps, so we put a trap in yo eroge so u can trap it up with all dem chicks!” and “2) How much blood would you shed to stay alive?” Lastly, MangaGamer has also released a SHUFFLE! CG viewer bug fix as a 1.12 MiB zip file that needs to be unpacked into the program folder.
