Dracu-Riot! Status Update

As our very rough estimate of about two months allows for a release date either quite greater than or quite less than two months, we feel obligated to give a status update on a date that falls on the lower end of this spectrum.

Due to main translator Nosebleed suffering from somewhat unforeseen circumstances that keep him busy, and other translator Clephas suffering from definitively unforeseen circumstances that keep him mentally and physically incapacitated, the translation aspect of this endeavor has not progressed as favorably as expected. We are currently engaging in asymmetrical warfare with the Yuzusoft curse.

Meanwhile, Decay is moving through the editing portion of the project at a commendable pace. As a part of this process, he has also been reporting a considerable number of lines with observably uncertain translations, which we’ve subsequently addressed; thus, while the actual TLCing will come in later patches, at least the most manifest errors will be taken care of for the first patch.

At the same time, Tiagofvarela has been proofreading some edited parts with the utmost thoroughness. As this game is probably about 500,000 English words long, however, we remain worried about how thorough shizzle can get while maintaining a steady pace of progress.

With all this information in mind, it appears safe to say that the release date of our first patch will fall at the latter end of the very-roughly-two-month estimate, for which we apologize. But, as editing everything in two months and with decent thoroughness seemed to be a gargantuan task from the beginning, at least now it may be completed around the same time as the translation, making the first patch fulfill all the features promised.

Thank you for your patience. Or, the patience we’re forcing you to have.

    I must ask, once dracu riot is finished, will you be taking up amario islenauts? It seems sakura subs has been dead for over a year now.

    It seems only the oxford comma is capable of fighting the yuzusoft curse. Thanks for everything fellas

      As our FAQs say, we don’t have any firm plans one way or the other, and can offer no insight until the announcement of a project.

    Thanks for the hard work as always~

    On a somewhat unrelated note Sekai Project licensed Tenshin Ranman Lucky or Unlucky. Supposing sales go well do you think there’s a chance of licensing other Yuzusoft works like Dracu Riot or Amairo Islenauts? I feel like they should’ve licensed a later work if they were testing the waters

      They ain’t made much progress on Tenshin Ranman after almost a year, so I think any efforts at reasonable speculation for shizzle should be spent elsewhere.

        That’s true isn’t it? I’m glad they’re focusing their efforts on games like Grisaia and Clannad but it’d be nice to get some news for their other lesser known games

      We’re still making steady progress, fear not. While translator Clephas leads a perennially busy life, he has at least recovered from his injury brought on by the gods’ wrath, and thus has the capacity to translate now. Furthermore, editor Decay has requested assistance from seasoned editor Ryechu, who kindly obliged.

      Nothing specifically; translation and editing/proofreading are proceeding consistently. We’ve additionally recruited one Mr. Aizen-sama to serve as another proofreader because why not.
