We’re working on the game every day. Check here for updates on that.

We’ll update again when we have something we want to show.

  1. Not a lot to say then? ๐Ÿ™‚
    Keep up the good work.

    I wish I could read Japanese.

  2. He is probably getting sick of people asking for a new update on the blog… can’t say I blame him either.

  3. It’s getting close.I can feel it.

  4. may the force always be with you guys!!

  5. It’s not May the Fourth yet though ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And yeah those skits must be murder.

  6. Love the dedication. Consistent mini goals is a good approach.

  7. keep it up! as long as it gets done, thats all we can ask for.

  8. You must have the patience of a saint to not lose your sanity at this point!
    *insert generic compliment*

  9. went from everyday to somedays to some weeks to per month and now its back to everyday ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  10. that post seems oddly homoerotic

  11. keep going big bro

  12. Now the million dollar question is: which patch do you think will be finished first. Romhacking Aerie’s SRT J patch, or this???

  13. Given the fact that there are ^300 skits to translate, I think Throughhim needs a vacation from all the side-translating after this. Oh, and he also needs a medal. Who’s got a spare Medal?

  14. whats are skits everyone talking ?

    does absolutezerotranslation take donation ?

  15. Tedius + Entertainment (of KH) = slightly entertained thats my bet anyway :S but when u run outta KH’s to play its gonna be like nails on a chalkboard again ๐Ÿ™

  16. If I was forced to play Kingdom Hearts THAT would be like nails on a chalkboard to me…

  17. Keep the good work, I just hope you take your time (like 6 months ;P ) or you’ll ruin school for me…

  18. Oh yeah! Kudos to all members of the Absolute Zero team for doing their best to bring this game to America! If I knew how I’d send you guys a box of Oreos each… Hope no one’s alergic to chocolate…

  19. One box… a box in each flavor!!!

  20. your a tool bob, kingdom hearts is better than every tales game ever made. “Bob” the dick knob.

  21. @Gabbazoors

    Dude, don’t incentivate the flame, just let it die.

  22. (psst people can have opinions surprise surprise)

  23. urgh. Isn’t a Skit Completion % possible? Doing the skits alone is taking all your time. Just ask for help, then edit the translation as you see fit.

    ( friggin’ crappy english )

  24. This project isn’t worth doing if I can’t do things in my own way and at my own pace. Speed has never been and will never be something that I concern myself with on this project.

    Aside from the daily updates on the forum stating that I have reached my skit translation goal for the day, don’t expect any updates on skit percentages until it’s 100%.

  25. People, really just stop antagonizing him. If you really want it done that bad just wait and dont nag him all the time, you dont just annoy him you annoy everyone else who is patient

  26. “Haste makes waste…” as they saying goes…

    @S, I couldn’t have said it better myself…

    I personally don’t believe that Square-Enix can make a cardboard box, let alone a game, better than Bandai-Namco could… Kingdom Hearts more popular than Tales? Yeah, that I’ll begrudgingly admit… Better than Tales? Not possible…

  27. I prefer Kingdom Hearts to most Tales games. *Whistles*

  28. Hm well tales is my favorite series, but my others are star ocean and fire emblem…i really hate kingdom hearts….-uses air escape and gets away-

  29. Well, I love Kingdom Hearts and Tales series. Both have their pluses and minuses.

    Tales
    + Great battle system
    + Skits … nuff said
    + (Sometimes) great characters
    – Unavailable in English

    KH2
    + Great graphics
    + Addictive gameplay
    + Great characters
    – Having to go through each world at least twice (for some area, IMO, it’s boring)
    – Story a bit meh…

    KH DS
    + Great graphics (arguable)
    + Great story
    + Great characters
    – Graphics at best is only as good as PS1
    – Gameplay a bit simplified because of lack of 2 shoulder buttons

    But as for me I’ll play both Tales and KH games.

  30. Hahah, I suspected an update post like this, most likely due to people wanting to know how things are going.

    Well, keep up the good work, don’t stress yourself, yadda, yadda, the usual.

  31. *calms down*I apologize to ThroughHim and the rest of the Absolute Zero staff for what I honestly think… And I mean no disrespect or insult to Kingdom Hearts fans, I just think the series is all hype and cameo and no substance… I don’t believe it has any originality of it’s own… All RPGs use cliches at some point, there is no exception to that, use cliches… Cliches can make the story more interesting depending on whether or not they tie in with originality…

    Kingdom Hearts lacks such ideas… Organization 13 can be compared to the Naruto series’ Akatsuki, for instance…

  32. i think kindom hearts is a pretty cool guy. eh open holes and doesn’t afraid of anything.

  33. I wasn’t asking for any apologies. You don’t have to agree with me. In my mind, both Tales and Kingdom Hearts are enjoyable precisely because they are so absurdly cliche. If you can say that either series has an original bone in its body, you’re really fooling yourself. Some of the stuff in Tales of Hearts was so corny and over-done that I almost laughed myself right out of my chair, but that was also what made Hearts one of my favorites in the series. The cheesy moments in Kingdom Hearts are no different. Being cliche doesn’t make something bad and I think both series have done some interesting things while still clearly functioning within established scenarios and character archetypes.

    Anyway, I really don’t care what people talk about as long as you keep it civil. Outside opinions have never ruined a gaming experience for me, so yeah… knock yourselves out or whatever.

  34. “Some of the stuff in Tales of Hearts was so corny and over-done that I almost laughed myself right out of my chair, but that was also what made Hearts one of my favorites in the series.”

    ^– This. Oh God, this. Xing is an endless source of entertainment in this regard. I wish I had a screenshot to post of his latest antics at the point that I am in the game. (Just got back to the Imperial Capital from Noqueen, it’s a fairly tense scene, Calcedony flies off to save the Empress, and Xing… well, it would ruin it to just say it, but his line was just so stupid that it had me simultaneously facepalming and cracking up.)

    On the other hand, I know that sort of thing drives some other people nuts.

  35. Thank you ThroughHim… But I apologized because you’ve had to get onto me about starting flame-wars on your forum before…

    Personally I really wish they’d actually try to advertise or build up some hype to the Tales series… Many of the titles are sorely underrated and the missing mothership Tales titles, as well as VS., need to be brought over… I count 5 missing mothership titles… Destiny 2, Rebirth, Innocence, Hearts, and Graces… Every other mothership title has been brought over… Phantasia, Destiny, Eternia (as Destiny 2), Symphonia, Legendia, Abyss, and Vesperia… I own all of those plus Radiant Mythology and Symophonia 2… I heard a rumor sometime ago that an American version of Rebirth is available through special order, but when I looked into the rumor it turned out to be false, too bad… Rebirth is the one I’m most interested in playing…

  36. I’m excited! I bought a DS card reader, so now I can play it when it releases! Woo hoo!

  37. i think absolutezero is a pretty cool guy. eh does tramslations and doesnโ€™t afraid of anything.

  38. Hmm…Wish I could read the script of Tales of Hearts if it really is that funny… ._.

  39. I had a dream last night that I could understand it as if it were in English… I woke up and tried to play it just to see if my dream would come true… T_T no such luck…

    I know it’s stupid to hope for something like that…

  40. If you could learn Japanese from a dream, I would have cried over the cost of my education.

  41. I still couldn’t speak it though… If I could’ve learned Japanese from a dream though, I’d have it made… I’d be playing Hearts and Innocence endlessly right now…

  42. Whoooa! You guys are incredible, translating JP games and all!! Anyway, I liked the Symphonia one so I guess a similar gameplay like Innocence is a game I can’t miss!! YOO! I’m rooting for you, eh?!!
    If only I could help, I’m not even close to JAPAN!!! Xp
