    Thread title has been Changed to reflect the games that can be covered here.
    With the more frequent releases of Chinese games, I thought that we could have a dedicated Random news thread.

    In September, Tales of Hongyuan released. It now has an English translation. I intend to give this a go sometime next week.


    Faith of Danschant looks pretty cool. I watched a few videos from this ongoing let's play:

    Great idea! I would have grabbed Tales of Hongyuan already since hearing about its translation, but I have so many other games I'm trying to finish right now. I look forward to reading your impressions on it. The game looks beautiful and the combat reminds me of Suikoden. Hopefully it's got some nice challenge to it too!

    I have only played and completed Tale of Wuxia from the games I have bought. From that experience, I am expecting laughable translations from all of them.

    仙劍奇俠傳六 (Chinese Paladin:Sword and Fairy 6)
    侠客风云传(Tale of Wuxia)
    侠客风云传前传(Tale of Wuxia:The Pre-Sequel)
    軒轅劍外傳穹之扉(The Gate of Firmament)

    Are there any Chinese RPG worth caring about? Like, did they create a "Chinese Fallout", so to say?

    Chinese Paladin:Sword and Fairy 6 and The Gate of Firmament have decent translations that are no where near as bad as the Tale of Wuxia games are. However, they still have their problems to be sure. I wouldn't call them laughable though.

    No Chinese Fallout equivalent, as far as I know. Eastern Europe is still where that's at. I feel Like Tales of Wuxia could and maybe should be replayed more than once, though.

    There were a few good ones made more than 10 years ago that are worth playing. But those are not translated. The new ones are shit don't even bother.

    There's only one Chink game I'm interested in.



    Taiwan games use traditional Chinese characters so that's at least a small plus

    How about making this (non-Japanese) Asian RPG News Thread? Certainly fewer than Chinese and Taiwanese (at least what's available on Steam), but we are also seeing RPGs from Indonesia, Korea, and other South Asian countries occasionally.

    Case in point: look at this cringe nuXcom-like by Korean developer I just posted on JRPG News thread.

    I'm not against the idea. You can ask a mod to change the title from Chinese to Asian.

    Some cute-looking point-and-click adventure-ish/RPG-ish thing from Chinese developer:

    No English support though.

    I think it's from a Canadian developer.

    That's the wrong game. I had several tabs open.

    The game actually supports English language contrary to what was announced at first. Maybe I'll give it a chance at one point, so many games to play, not that I would complain.
    However :

    :negative: (no english support).
