Voice acting doujin game goes bilingual

Japanese doujin game circle ZERO ZIGEN has released the prologue to Kouenchu! Yonogi Seiyuu Monogatari Sora to Kimi to Ano Natsu to, an upgraded version of their debut novel game about voice acting school. What’s interesting about this release is that the upgraded version will feature among other things multilingual support. The prologue has an option to select between Japanese and English in the beginning of the game for the dialogue. This feature is touted as both helping Japanese people learn English and allowing people outside Japan to enjoy the game. The menu is still in Japanese, and the built-in radio feature does not have subtitles, although one of the radio shows is actually performed in English. The major issue seems to be that words are sometimes split across lines due to improper line breaking. Other than that and a few errors here and there, the script reads pretty well for the most part.

    If you are willing to work for free like several translators are doing, then maybe it will happen.

    There’s few typos and stuff, but it’s pretty much fine.
