That's right, the translators strike when you expect it the least.

Pretty cool actualy to have new translations, esp since the Russian one seems to be have been done by professionals. The only suprises is that there isn't a Spanish Translation yet. If I knew it better I would probably work on one :(

Nope. Just another fan translation.

Awesome! Time to play it again.

And I've updated the Wikipedia page.
I found out about Katawa Shoujo through the forums of Misfile. There, I am the editor of Misfiled Dreams.

Completed: 100%, including bonus picture. Shizune>Emi>Lilly>Hanako>Rin

Just to be clear, the changes are just additional languages, right? No altered music or sprites or text or anything? I only have a working knowledge of English, so I'm not missing anything if I skip this and just continue to wait for the full release, am I?

The only additions to V5 are the three new localizations, so the release is not recommended to those who have played a previous version and can't speak one of the new languages. There are some typo and error fixes in the English and other language scripts, but they are not major


Thats from the blog, so looks like no change.

Are the translators being let work on the finished scripts so they can get the translations for the full game out sooner, or are they just working on the publicly released stuff only? You could have the translators be part of the play-testing team too, so they can learn the material better before they translate too.

Okay, cool. Hadn't noticed that there was a new blog post to go along with the announcement yet. Dunno why I didn't think they'd be posted about the same time, actually... *shrugs*

played v4...

...*downloads v5 anyway*
It would be beautiful if KS was released for download on October 7. Greatest. B-day gift. Ever. (This is not meant to be taken as telling the devs to hurry up, so please don't take it as such, it's just a dream of sorts.)

Even though I played V4 a hundred times, I'm going to download V5 anyway. Just to see what those minor fixes were.

My girlfriend (russian) and I (german) are both going to keep reading it in english (just for style and atmo) - but we'd really like to thank you for this step, as it is nice to be cared about =)))

(on the other hand i'll silently weep now, as i was just going to offer my help for a german version of the full game ;) ).

I would suggest people not download this unless you need to, it resets your save data and you lose your unlockables.

Only if you actually install it, though :P Just downloading gives no trouble at all
