I haven't heard about the Ganbare Goemon 2 translation in several years and I kind of thought the project was in development hell or they just dropped it entirely so I thought it was dead. The fact that they're almost done with it and are also translating 3 and 4 makes me so, SO happy.Hi-doo~!
Sorry for long-time absence from this thread - As much as Goemon getting noted by a Mii Costume was a nice gesture, I didn't entirely have much in me to celebrate it fondly.
However, I wanted to bring very fortunate news:
Goemon 2’s script has been replaced with a version from @RetroTranslator. I appreciate his help, because the truth is, we’ve also been hard at work at translating the other Goemon games for the SNES, and they’re all nearing completion. pic.twitter.com/Ky0uJAc3Vr— DDS (@DDSTranslation) December 19, 2019
It looks like the passionate dedication for Goemon-series is still living on, and it's been blowing me away. We're not only getting the highly coveted Goemon 2 for SFC, but also 3 and 4 to be soon fully playable in English through fan translations!
There was a problem fetching the tweet
And most incredible thing about this? We'd have most of the mainline Goemon-games finally playable all the way through from Famicom, to N64. That's going to let these games stand the test of time even better in spite of the long-running dormancy today.
I'm especially waiting on 4, after really coming to love it fondly from clearing it many years back via use of walkkthroughs.
