Over eight years in the making, the Dragon Force II English translation is complete! The project has been a truly massive undertaking, combining the efforts of twenty dedicated storyline translators, an additional thirteen translators of gameplay text, a programmer, and a small army of script editors, tinkerers and testers.
Set 500 years after the first game, Dragon Force II follows a slate of monarchs who must band together to defeat a new threat looming over Legendra. Along the way, they learn the value of friendship and unravel the mystery of what happened to the original Dragon Force after Madruk’s defeat. The eight-scenarios approach and Strategy RPG formula will immediately appeal to fans of the first game.
Dragon Force II differs from the original in three significant respects. Most importantly, players can now assign two troop types to their generals for added gameplay depth. An item forging system puts greater focus on the spoils of war, and Sega of Japan assembled a crack team of voice actors to bring the story alive; with the English translation in place, the game has a subbed anime feel.
At this time, Dragon Force II’s FMVs remain un-subbed and the end-game credits un-translated, as FMV editing represents a new challenge beyond the scope of the project’s original goals. Hopefully these can be addressed in subsequent updates.
We hope Dragon Force fans will brave the challenges of Saturn emulation and the confusion that’s sure to arise from the game’s numerous prints to give the sequel a well-deserved spin! Here’s an hour’s worth of preview footage to whet your appetite, and head on over to the website linked below to get started!
