If you’ve been keeping up with Aethin’s translation efforts for Shozou Kaga’s Berwick Saga, you may be interested in paying a visit to Lord Raven’s Twitch server. Lord Raven’s Twitch channel (Click there), is live Now. Come and watch, to keep up while he and Aethin continue their gameplay through Chapter 4!
If you miss the stream, you can still keep up with Aethin’s work and the translation here, in its Serenes Forest thread.
As a recap: Serenes Forest user Aethin has been hard at work, assembling a fantastic English translation of this Japanese-exclusive title for players to finally enjoy in our English-dominant region. He’s completed about 2/3 of the translation project (66.2% to be precise), and another Serenes Forest user Lord Raven has been working with Aethin as a player of the game to showcase it for the world to enjoy.

Nintendo Dream: What are your thoughts now that you’ve finished development of the DLC?
Usuda: “It’s over; that was long” is what I’m honestly thinking. At the very beginning, we were working with the 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors as a base, and we had Link running around in this very early, rough version. Roughly half a year has passed since the game’s launch and we’ve created many DLC characters for everyone to use. We received opinions via Twitter and enjoyed reading fans’ reactions after the release. In addition, we progressed onto the DLC, where we enjoyed communicating with fans, while thinking of what to do next.
Hayashi: I’m very grateful for all the fans who praised the game and affirmed our expectations. Also, now that the DLC is over, I feel like there’s finally a great variety of weapons.
As of last Thursday, Koei Tecmo’s last financial report has something quite interesting to note: the fact that Fire Emblem Warriors has shipped over 1 million copies worldwide (this is counting both the Switch and N3DS versions together).

Using some old data from ZhugeEx, who was comparing the then new Hyrule Warriors sales to that of Dynasty Warriors of the time, we can see where we stand in comparison somewhat Warriors game sales tend to be erratic as it’s a fairly niche market. We’ve got some numbers from the same financial report about Dynasty Warriors 9 and Attack on Titan 2 (even if that differs in the gameplay department to my knowledge). Read more
