As we have stated many times before, the 7th Dragon 2020 series, were acclaimed as some of the best RPGs ever in the entire PSP library, sadly translations never arrived to the west, that is… until now… A fan translation patch for the 1st 7th Dragon 2020 title (which is the 2nd in the overall series) has been released by Geoff Embree and can be can be downloaded via torrent or FilePup.net.
However take in mind the following consideration as Gematsu reports:
There is a glitch with the name entry screen that forces you to use full-width text, rather than the basic Latin alphabet in the on-screen keyboard, which you can reach by pressing the L button.
Yes, this is something to celebrate. 7th Dragon 2020 was produced by SEGA’s legendary Rieko Kodama (Alex Kidd, Phantasy Star Series, Skies of Arcadia, and many more), features music composed by Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, Shenmue, and more) & Sasakure UK with Hatsune Miku on vocals for some tracks, and character designer art by manga artsit Shirow Miwa. The 2020 series are considered 7th Dragon’s best entries. While 7th Dragon III (the 4th title in the series) will arrive later this year in the west. There’s a fan translation for the 1st title for the Ninty DS. All titles have been developed by Imageepoch.
