What can you find here
With the success of the complete and downloadable Phantasy Star Generation 1 English translation, there has been an increasing interest for a translation of Generation 2. Currently, all community news about the state of this translation project is posted in this message board thread.
This particular page was created to post related files and submissions as we step closer to our aim to have a downloadable translation of the game.
Incomplete written translation
Olivier, webmaster of Xanafalgue, has been working on a written translation of Generation 2 and is kindly sharing his work with Kyence and anyone else that are considering to work on an English patch. These files can also be used by gamers as a guide. Note however that the translation reaches to the third dungeon.
Regarding the content of these PDF files, Olivier noted: "Regrettably this project is unfinished. I made it only up to the third dungeon, with towns, environment and menu translation. But it gives you maybe a good introduction of the game with a detailed view to the world of Phantasy Star Generation 2. After the intro scene I translated the game free and took no reference to the MD/Genesis Translation. I translated the game into English and German. Phantasy Star Generation 2 is a remake of the Mega Drive/Genesis JRPG classic Phantasy Star 2 with some enhancements. I made this translation over two years ago (winter 2010 to Feb. 2011). I thought I would continue it the next winter, but I didn’t. It would need too much space of my life. The project is to big for one person. Since over two years now I did not proceed, so I decided to release the unfinished result. This is not a patch, this is a old school project, please print the documents or use an electronic devise to apply it.
Especially at the beginning I had some problems to start, but I think then my translation improved. I know the result is much imperfect and if I would had a certain target I would reinvest time and revise it. But how I see the situation at the moment, I decided to release it as it is.
If you continue this game after the ending of my translation, please use the official translation document of Phantasy Star II (MegaDrive/Genesis). Maybe it is not complete, because Generation 2 is extended, but it allows you to play the full game, understanding the story/plot and the main rumors in the cities till the end of the game."
