Eidolon Translation Group


The reason why I set up this page (and finally, why the ETG has been founded) is that I am a great fan of japanese games, especially Role Playing Games. But unfortunately, many of those games were released in Japan only, with no American translation in sight (and now that the Genesis is "dead", "official" translations won´t be done any more by the game companies). The only way for European and American players to enjoy those games are "freak" translations as they have been done (and very successfully done!) for Japanese Super Famicom (Super NES) games by groups like RPGe and DeJap?. No similar group existed that concentrated their efforts on Mega Drive translation - until the ETG had been founded.

In recent years, a lot of Chinese "rogue" Mega Drive game developments have found the way to the western world in form of ROM images as well, which are worth translating. Best example here is "Beggar Prince", which even found a commercial translation and release as an actual game cartridge.

Who are we?

Currently, we are:

rodolforg? - Surging Aura translator and Genesis programmer
simon? - Surging Aura translator
gamer_boy? - maintainer of this Inn section

and to a very small extent Eidolon - Inn Godfather ;-)
