As some of you may have already seen, Sekai Project just announced at Anime Expo today that they’ve licensed and will release Dracu-Riot (as well as Senren Banka!). So here’s the low-down: they have been in contact with us recently, and have expressed interest in using our work. We haven’t actually signed a deal yet, but we have no reason to refuse if they’re asking for our help.
So yep, we’re going official. What does that mean?
- No more patch releases, of course.
- As with most fan translations gone official, this means that it will probably take a little longer to release, but hopefully not too much longer.
- It will be of a higher level of quality than if it was to remain a fan translation.
- You will still get your porn; they announced an 18+ version as well. I haven’t spent all that time recently transcribing moans and sound effects for nothing!
I understand many of you will feel jilted, and I understand that. However, for us, we are immensely proud of the work we’ve been putting into this project. What started as an ill-conceived attempt to hurriedly poop out a complete DR patch based on Insem’s earlier work has turned into a far more serious project. We have been completely overhauling the translation in order to make it something befitting of this hilarious and amazing moege. To me, it’s only fitting that we now take this project to the next level, to the stage it belongs on.
I imagine most status updates will now come from Sekai Project, so we won’t use this blog for Dracu-Riot much anymore. Thank you to all who have shown their support thus far.
