A Note to those using the Unofficial RPG Maker 2000 & 2003 Translations

I’d like to remind everyone that the developers and publishers of RPG Maker, Enterbrain & Deciga, now consider the unofficial version a pirated copy.  If you’re planning on using it for the jam, consider buying and supporting the official release now or when it goes on sale.  It has a feature where it converts games made using the old version of 2000 & 2003 into the new version, so if you buy it midway through the jam you don’t have to start over.

I’m not sure if you’ll get in trouble or a take down notice if you enter a version of your game made in the unofficial translation, but I’d be cautious and buy the official release.

Looking through some of our old Monster Hunter books/magazines from way back when, and we came across some pages that might interest you other fellow hunters out there! We scanned these from the “Monster Hunter Portable 2nd Rookie’s Guide” by Enterbrain MookThe section we scanned is “The Roots of Monster Hunter”

A few inspirations of the world of Monster Hunter are series such like Indiana Jones, Dragon Lance, Lord of the Rings, quite a few Studio Ghibli Films and areas showcased in National Geographic Magazines. For the Monsters themselves, Jurassic Park was one of the biggest inspirations, as well as real life animals the creators met through their journey of inspiration. Inspiration for the armors are taken from Conan the Barbarian, Berserk, and a lot of real life armors, outfits, weaponry and traditional cultural outfits. With the creators through the journey of their Monster Hunter Inspiration, grilling, airsofting and nature journeys were their biggest!

Novel translations masterpost

I was compiling this for a friend and thought heck might as well publish it. Below the cut you will find links to all of the JP-ENG novel translations I can think of. They are mostly 2ch, vocaloid, and game-based novels. I have also added links to series that don’t have translations as reference (and a grim reminder). Feel free to tell me if I am missing any series.

Individual novel titles will be linked to the novel masterpost if there is one. Some series only have series masterposts; go there to navigate to book chapters. Author/original creator links go to the mylists of the creators of the original songs. Italicized titles are books that have been released but have not been translated yet by the series translator(s). The official site links have the publisher’s name. Translations that I deem inaccurate and indirect translations are not included in this list.

Mostly the old sets squashed together properly into a 512x512 format with some new items added in. Please forgive the spaces in the hospital one, I ran out of ideas. x.x;

Along with the old items are a few new ones including an MRI, Xrays, Xray machine, vending machines, phones, wall mounted tvs, new toilets and sinks, wheel chairs, gurneys, nursery basinets, walkers, scale, arm pressure, bio hazard recycling and trash receptacles, crutches, a mini chainsaw ( I edited it from an icon set and I don’t know who the original artist for it is so aside from adding it in I have no real claim to it ), some new little books, a notebook, and a couple new bulletin boards.

Credits to Enterbrain, whoever made the original chainsaw, and Flaming Teddy Productions.

UDON Entertainment is proud to announce that The Eyes of Bayonetta, the official art book devoted to the character, the game, the phenomenon, is available in stores as of Wednesday, January 8th! 

The Eyes of Bayonetta is perhaps the most comprehensive look at a single game that UDON has ever published. At 224 pages, The Eyes of Bayonetta collects all of the gorgeous, stylish, highly-polished artwork that fans would expect, but it also includes a wealth of little-seen design documents and an exhaustive selection of character sketches, including nearly 100 iterations of the main Bayonetta design alone! An amazing array of CG models, ‘Angel’ designs, weapon and accessory designs, gorgeous and inspiring location concept artworks, and rare bonus artworks is also included, and nearly every piece in the book features commentary by one or more members of the game’s design team, including superstar director Hideki Kamiya (Devil May Cry, Okami)! 

The Eyes of Bayonetta also includes the exclusive DVD documentary “Witchcraft: The Making of Bayonetta.” This 78-minute documentary covers every aspect of this iconic game’s creation through interviews with director Hideki Kamiya, Bayonetta character designer Mari Shimazaki, producer Yusuke Hashimoto, designers Hiroshi Shibata and Masaaki Yamada, and a selection of other important members of Platinum Games, the creators of the Bayonetta series. Japanese w/ English subtitles, Region Free.

The Eyes of Bayonetta and the ”Witchcraft” documentary will take you deep into Bayonetta’s origins, in the words of the game creators themselves!

UDON Entertainment has worked closely with licensors Enterbrain, Inc. and Platinum Games to ensure that the English-language edition of The Eyes of Bayonetta is up to the highest standards of quality. All of the information, captions, and interviews have been faithfully and carefully translated, and while this took longer than originally anticipated, we are very proud of this release and grateful to Enterbrain and Platinum Games for their assistance. As for the book itself, it has been printed on the highest-quality stock and upgraded to a gorgeous hardcover binding to thank fans for supporting UDON during this book’s long production, and to ensure that this is an edition that Bayonetta fans will be able to keep on their shelves for years to come.
