KAROUS - English Translation Project for Sega Dreamcast

Karous (カラス) is a vertically scrolling dark shoot-'em-up with RPG elements, developed and published by Milestone Inc. It was originally released on November 15, 2006 for the Sega NAOMI GD-ROM arcade platform, and was ported to the Sega Dreamcast. Upon its Japan-only launch on March 8, 2007. Karous became the last game to be officially released on the Dreamcast.

We already translated all stuff from the game. Menus, descriptions, VMU screens, gameplay graphics, dialogs, opening & ending and icons.
In project I add also some graphics fixes. Like bigger fonts, bigger items icons, some smaller corrects and extras/easter eggs. This version is much "upgraded" than official English translation (Nintendo Wii port).

Patched files works on real SEGA hardware, ODE (GDEMU) and emulators like Redream, NullDC, Demul, Makaron or Reicast etc. For free, without external patcher - just use a simple LazyBoot tool (ready to download) and overwrite your files.
