Astlibra Revision gets a revised English localization patch
Whispergames and Keizo have released a new update for Astlibra Revision, offering a fully revised English localization for the game, alongside a Korean localization.
Astlibra Revision launched for PC (Steam) on October 13, 2022. In our review of the game, Chao stated that "Astlibra Revision captures the perfect definition of a hidden gem. Its engrossing gameplay and narrative make it an easy recommendation to fans of the 2D action RPG genre." However, he criticized the quality of the English translation as feeling "unnaturally stiff", which the publisher decided to address due to feedback. For those who prefer the original translation, a Legacy Localization is still available.
Additionally, the game's upcoming Nintendo Switch version has statedly been completed and is currently going through the submission process for release.
The patch notes can be found below. For more on Astlibra, we also have an exclusive interview with Keizo in which we discuss the game's creation.
Cue the drumroll, because we have two major announcements to make!
