The tentative release date is being pushed back to Summer 2009.I realize that’s kind of a big jump from Q1 2009, but I just want to play it safe. From the beginning, I was aiming for a late Q1 release. I know many people thought maybe it would be early this year, but I don’t want to rush things. I failed to consider the time commitment I had in the Tales of Destiny: Director’s Cut and how much time editing might take. I will say that I’m hoping it will be an early Summer release rather than a late one, but I can’t make any promises. I have a lot of things that I need to be able to devote time to and I can’t afford to neglect any of them. So to ensure that you’re all getting the highest quality release that we can provide, that date is being pushed back. The date was never fixed from the outset, but I did say that I was shooting for Q1, so I felt some obligation to say this.
In other news, this last week saw a ton of progress on Tales of Innocence. The NPC files have been completely translated as well as several of the events. The current event progress is 11 out of 31. That’s not an estimate, just a fact. It doesn’t really mean anything either. In addition, the NPC files have been passed off for editing, so those are out of my hands for now. Things are moving at a good pace. Once I finish translating the events, the work on the skits will begin. For those who are interested in following the event translation more closely, I’m making an effort to keep people updated on the day-to-day progress on the forum. So if that sounds like something that might interest you, check it out.
I guess that’s about all I have for now.
