Like most Sega Saturn RPG series, Dragon Force introduced its first outing to English audiences, but sealed its in-demand-follow-up behind a wall of Japanese text. Luckily for us the Eastern exclusive sequel, Dragon Force II: Kamisarishi Daichi ni (aka The Godforsaken Land), has been blown apart by a fan translation patch.
Dragon Force first arrived on the Sega Saturn in 1996. Whilst the game captivated enthusiastic RPG fans across the world, sales for the real-time strategy and tactics adventure were presumably dwarfed by the likes of Virtua Fighter 2 - deeming it a failure outside of Japan. Nevertheless demand has since grown for Dragon Force which has remaining copies of the game fetching impressive prices on eBay.
The sequel to Dragon Force was released only in Japan in 1998, much to the dismay of the diehard RPG gamers. 14 years later the combined efforts of the team behind Verve Fanworks have released their first playable patch of Dragon Force II. The patch opens up all of the in-game menus and battle screens to English audiences, leaving just the bulk of the story to be translated in the near future.
