So I recently got to come into contact with Klayton Vorlick, the translator of Skies of Arcadia. I intended to contact him just to chat with him, but the conversation had such nice information that it might have well been an interview! There’s some interesting information, such as what kind of hand he had in the development of the game. So without further ado, click the more button to see my chat with Klayton Vorlick!
There was text problems with the previous site design, possibly due to incompatibility with WordPress updates, causing the previous site design to break more and more. When I get the time I will add the EsoArcadia header again, but for reference here are the site’s sections:
Archie Comics crossover event set to include characters from STREET FIGHTER, MONSTER HUNTER, SKIES OF ARCADIA, and other popular video game franchises by SEGA and CAPCOM.
Looks like people are receiving their Vyse statues. My statues actually came in today (I got the Regular and Exclusive versions)! The above is somebody who received their Vyse statue in December and unboxed it. It’s a really nice statue!
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed Released in Japan was released in Japan two days ago, May 15th 2014, on PlayStation 3 and Wii U. Rogues’ Landing has been localized as 青の空賊島, or Blue Rogues’ Island.
The Archive page has been revamped. Ares and Mars Arcadia, the precursor to EsoArcadia, will be purged eventually once I move all the relevant information from those sites to this site’s wiki, so for those people who update skiesofarcadia.wikia.com and like to copy and paste from this site to update that wiki instead, better get to it before they’re gone from the ‘net forever!
As a tradeoff, the official US site has been unearthed and has been added to the Archive page.

Yup, there’s a Downloads page now, after being broken for 2 years, so for all two people who actually clicked Downloads and miss the 404 Error displayed, tough luck! It has the Dreamcast add-on downloads, the soundtrack and drama CDs, and Skies of Arcadia font. If anyone has any other suggestions to put in the Downloads page, be sure to suggest them in the comments!
Some old news that I don’t think was ever reported on an English site: There was a Skies of Arcadia art show prior to the one on March 9, 2014: It happened on September 13, 2009 at the same convention and place: セガのゲームは世界いち (Sega Games Are the World’s Greatest) at the Ota Bunka Hall Apricot. It’s hard to dig up more information due to how old this is, but better late than never, right? Right?!?!
Hopefully this will be a fairly regular occurrence. It would be about 5 years until the next art show!
You can read the original Japanese press release after the jump!
