Tales of Destiny DC, a director’s cut PlayStation 2 release of the original Tales of Destiny, received a rather stellar English fan translation by team Life Bottle Studios. While it is not entirely complete, it’s nearly there, with the only incomplete aspect, the menus, being 98% done. However, one collective part of the experience left untouched during the fan translation was the victory and Mystic Arte quotes. For those unaware, the latter is essentially a Tales of character’s strongest attack.
Yesterday, Twitter user @JLightfellow shared that they are working on implementing this change, with a brief clip showcasing Stahn’s Mystic Arte and victory lines accompanied by subtitles. While this adjustment may seem minor to some, these quotes provide further characterization and clarity for the cast and their movesets, so seeing a dedicated fan go through the trouble of simultaneously translating and patching in these lines is inestimably appreciated.

The tweet from @JLightfellow announcing their forthcoming contributions and teased progress is viewable below:
This is still a WIP. We've got a few more categories of text to add, and also looking into changing the text position based on what the text is (victory quote, in battle quote, blast caliber, etc.) Assembly coding for this is otherwise all completed, though!
