Most of you are probably already aware of this but it looks as though Kirameki’s Captain Rainbow fan translation is nearly finished. Under a new team of hackers and editors, the group has made fantastic progress, enough to be able to release a trio of preview videos.
Interestingly the old progress counter has now been removed, presumably to prevent false expectation and to take a little pressure off the volunteer team, but it really does look as though we’ll finally be able to play an English version of this absolutely brilliant game very soon. No thanks to Nintendo.
Actually, with Nintendo UK blazing a localisation trail with The Last Story, Xenoblade Chronicles and Pandora’s Tower this year I wonder what might have been if Captain Rainbow had been included in Operation Rainfall. Then again, the infamous Birdo storyline may have always torpedoed its chances.
(PS – There’s quite a bit more Lovedelic-related news but I’ll save that for a separate post. Captain Rainbow is special enough to get his own)
