Operate Shooting Star Fan-Translation Update
Despite being noted as roughly 0.2% complete at the official translation site, LuigiBlood, head of the project, has assured me things are progressing smoothly. Basically, a lot of time is being spent on the development of a tool that will speed up the text alteration process -- one of the biggest hurdles for any fan translation.
Assisting LuigiBlood is the ever-talented Prof. 9. The prof has been working diligently at fixing some holes in the translation and is currently working on implementing a few secret codes that's not in the original game. That's right, we're getting some extra content... unlockable after you finish the game.
No word on what exactly the codes will do right now, but we should be hearing something on that front in the very near future. We still don't have a patch release window either, but do bear in mind these things take a while, years at most.
Stay up to date with the OSS translation project at LuigiBlood's official site here.
