Neon Genesis Evangelion Typing Project Advanced is the latest Dreamcast passion fan project that hit our radar. SEGA’s swan song console continues to live on through fans’ insistence the dream never dies. Derek Pascarella (aka ateam) has been hard at work on a new translation project of his. A couple of weeks ago, Derek announced a complete English translation of Neon Genesis Evangelion Typing Project Advanced:
Neon Genesis Evangelion Typing Project Advanced was a Dreamcast game released in Japan in 2001. As with other similar titles in the genre, you get random words thrown at you on the screen and you need to type it up real fast before the enemy takes you down. According to Derek’s release notes, menus, options, dialog boxes, and screens were fully translated; Every level is fully playable in English.
I’m always amazed at the everlasting passion from SEGA Dreamcast fans. There are always stories like these that I come across and put a smile on my face. You can take a look at the game in action above, and be sure to drop a thank you to Derek on his Twitter! Thanks to the Dreamcast Junkyard for the initial reporting.
