There is a mistake that practically all those who buy a “perfect collection” of Giga released in the late 90s commit.
This is a collection of images, sketches, videos and music from the original game NOT a Windows version of the game itself.
Unfortunately I also fell for it, but I am pleased to find inside this product, a vast amount of information that otherwise I would not have been able to find about Harlem Blade.
In addition to a cd-rom that can be read both by Windows and Mac-OS systems, everything is accompanied by a poster and a small manual illustrating part of the contents of the artbook published by KSS.
In my opinion the content of the CD is very important for two aspects:
- it contains a new opening both on the PC98 version, and on the Windows version, very well done and animated, which I leave up to this comment.
- Contains all the soundtrack 3 variants of each musical track of the game. It is not a question of the PC98 audio chipset versions, but rather of the re-editions of the studio music tracks, most likely made to improve game audio in anticipation of porting on Windows 95.
- It contains exclusive images of the game made by Kimura (among these there is also the cover of the game and the poster).
- It also contains some nice cartoons created by the developers .
About the progress of the translation … Yesterday I reached 40%!
I am very satisfied with the result so far achieved, surely the summer break from work has allowed me to work more quickly on translation.
