There is a group tackling the translation of Key’s latest game, Little Busters! According to their latest update, they have figured out how to extract the majority of the text from the game and have managed to reinsert some back in.
Little Busters! was an all-ages game released by Key in 2007 and features a colorful cast of characters ranging from the cat-magnet Rin to the muscular idiot Masato. This is a story about the protagonist, Riki and his friends, Kyousuke, Kyousuke’s sister Rin, Masato and Kengo, who were part of this little justice gang called Little Busters back when they were little. It starts with the senior, Kyousuke, who had just returned from job hunting. Riki proposed that they should do something just like old times, and Kyousuke proclaimed that they would form a baseball team and the game tells of the exploits of Riki as they gather the team and how it went.
An adult version of the game, called Little Busters! EX(Ecstasy) is scheduled for release on July 25, 2008, but the translation group is mostly focused on getting it to work with the original all-ages release and they might work on EX after that.
Anyone interested in visiting the translation group is encouraged to join the channel #lbtp on irc.synirc.net and they are welcoming any help in translation that they can get.
