Tokimeki Memorial English translation now available

Tokimeki Memorial English translation

Translated Games announced the Tokimeki Memorial English translation is now available, the first time the iconic dating sim is fully playable in English.

The new Tokimeki Memorial English translation is based on the 1996 Super Famicom version of the game, which Konami released as Tokimeki Memorial: Under the Legendary Tree. 

The original Tokimeki Memorial was released in 1994 for the PC Engine, and was directed by Yoshiaki Nagata with Koji Igarashi handling scenario writing. While not the first dating simulator game, it’s considering an all-time classic, with the majority of games that followed really tried to emulate its mechanics and overall feel.

As this was before Iga started working on Castlevania, he played Castlevania: Rondo of Blood while writing the Tokimeki, and asked his then-girlfriend (who worked on Rondo of Blood) for advice on how to write the story.

Tokimeki Memorial has been ported numerous times after its Super Famicom port, later making it to PlayStation, Sega Saturn, Super Famicom, Game Boy Color, PlayStation Portable, and mobile platforms.

For this new translated release, Translated Games made sure to include the PC Engine original’s animated intro, complete with English lyrics for both its intro and ending. Furthermore, the confession scenes are now fully voiced.

Here’s a video of the translation patch running:
