Amaterasu Translations has now released a full patch for FlyingShine’s CROSS CHANNEL. This patch comes in the form of an installer, which has the option to create an all-ages version of the game that bypasses the erotic scenes. There is also a lighter version of the patch that does not include videos.
CROSS CHANNEL, published in 2003 by FlyingShine, was written by famed eroge writer Romeo Tanaka, who has worked on games including Yume Miru Kusuri and Saihate no Ima and is rumored to have worked on Family Project. The story talks about the main character, Taichi, and the shocking situation he found himself in after the broadcasting club he was in fell apart. TYPE-MOON writer Kinoko Nasu praised this game shortly after release, saying that this game reigns as an unsurmountable wall in terms of works in this genre. However, what gave many people a brief, if not unrepresentative glimpse into CROSS CHANNEL was a certain addictive flash game called NANACA CRASH!!, wherein one of the characters slams into Taichi at high velocity in order to launch him into the air.
It has taken Ixrec, the translator, and the rest of the Amaterasu Translations staff a little over three months to translate this game, and there are interesting statistics on the whole translation process available on their project page. The current patch contains translations for the entirety of the game, and barring any new bug reports, will be the final patch.
