Soul Link is finally out and available for 36.95 Euros!
Instead of posting up a quick little blurb about how Soul Link is a great suspense game by Navel, I’ll let you visit it’s catalog page and read for yourself. That way I won’t inadvertently spoil any of the plot twists either.
What I would like to say, is that I’m glad this release is finally out. Soul Link represents my first professional work as a translator and also my first project working with MangaGamer. I’ve put a lot of time into the script and overcome many hurdles to try and make this release a good, quality translation that remains true to the original work by Navel. I hope you all enjoy it, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I thought it was important to inform our customers about the upcoming release of Higurashi When They Cry.
Hi, Evospace here. I’ve been helping Mangagamer.com with their translations since Da Capo.
After spending a good 3 weeks of sleepless nights, I’m finally done with the translation check/proofreading of Higurashi When Whey Cry! Now with only the re-insertion and testing process awaiting, the release date should be announced soon!!
You can meet Mion soon!
(A Mion fan)
Also, as a test case we are doing something very special for this release, so please look forward to it…!
As for the Soul Link CG issue…
We are taking this issue seriously. No decision is final yet!!
This site has now gone official as the Staff Blog for MangaGamer. As you probably guessed, I am one of the translators for MangaGamer, and from what information I’ve gleaned, there are at least two of us. The projects I’ve worked on so far are Soul Link and Edelweiss Eiden Fantasia. I’m currently working on Kira Kira Curtain Call. If anyone has something they’d like to see me discuss here, feel free to ask. As a fan of these games myself, I enjoy the opportunity to discuss my work.
There are several things I want to address today. First, I want to thank Haeleth, for his hard work and forum which helped encourage me to become a professional translator, and zalas for helping me start my work on Soul Link. Without either of them, I might not be here today as a translator of eroge for MangaGamer. I hope that they both continue to help nurture and care for the community of English speaking eroge fans as I strive to produce quality translations true to the original work.
The second thing I’d like to discuss is the delay in Soul Link’s release. As some of you may know, Soul Link was supposed to be released the other day (11/30/09), but was not available on the website. After a last minute review of the revised scripts we noticed there were still some issues remaining. Once they have all been addressed, the game will be available for purchase. We want to ensure that a quality product is available to everyone.
