Going on sale in Japan on June 1st. So that means it could be anytime from around noon May 31st to noon Saturday the 1st for people in the EST time zone. So you could be playing it (in Japanese) in 8 days from now!

As most of you are probably aware, MGQ3 was just posted on DLSite for its upcoming release at http://www.dlsite.com/maniax/announce/=/product_id/RJ115697. Which, according to the site, should be early June. I’ll make a post on an actual date once there is one… I’ve heard there are some funky things with DLSite’s dates, as they have to go through some sort of vetting process and the dates they put up are sometimes just guesses based on what the producer says and what they think.
Long story short, should be out soon!
MGQ3 will also be the last project I work on. Once it has been completed and supported in terms of bug fixes and patches for a little bit, I’ll be done with the translation scene. But rest assured, as it will be completed!
Playing instructions: Un-rar and use the mon_que executable to run. The trial is some story and the first fight, immediately after where part 2 ended. If you get crashes, make sure you’re running in Japanese locale. If you’re still crashing, post here and I’ll see if I can duplicate.

Release date: Still unknown. Months off, for sure. Torotoro’s still trying to release it in the first half of 2013 sometime.
EDIT 2/26: Mediafire deleted the patch again. The updated download link was provided by someone else. I’ll look into finding a new place to host the files at sometime tomorrow. If the download in the post doesn’t work (or was removed) check the comments section to see if someone uploaded it to another site until I get around to updating this post again.
According to Torotoro’s twitter (https://twitter.com/torotoro_mon/status/304014352569204736) the MGQ3 Demo will be out sometime on the 23rd Japan Time (Or any time after around 10am Friday). Depending on how long and how changed the system/interface stuff is from the previous parts, it could take a few hours (from when I first start) to a few days for it to be translated and out.
He also said that just because the trial is out it doesn’t mean the full game is right around the corner. There was about 3 months between part 2′s trial and release… But I don’t even know if that’s a good benchmark to go by.
Just released by the good man Dargoth over at http://dargothtranslations.wordpress.com/ is version 1.0 of the Violated Hero 2 english translation patch! Why not go on over and give it a try. Nothing better on Valentine’s Day than spending it being raped by monster girls!
Game: Marunomi. You can get it off DLSite or through some other means, probably posted in the comments section of this post or the previous post already.
How to install: Simply put the patch.xp3 in the game directory (The same place where you see 丸呑み.exe). Probably requires Japanese locale or language support to run properly like 99% of other Japanese games.

Special thanks to Sylphtastic for re-doing and vastly improving the buttons and Dargoth for help with getting word-wrap to work! Make sure to play through the Prologue first if you want an explanation of the battle system in the game. I’ll try to fix any bugs as they come up, just post them in the comments section.
Just a short post to say that I finished translating Marunomi as of today (http://www.dlsite.com/maniax/work/=/product_id/RJ063983.html). It’s in what I would consider a near final version at the moment. I’m going to go through the game start to finish one more time and then release it. Probably Thursday or Friday evening (EST). I fiddled around with Insani’s Kirikiri word wrap fix, but I just couldn’t get it to work with the game.
If anyone familiar with getting wordwrap to work (Dargoth, lol) is willing to lend a hand, I’d appreciate it. I’ll be sitting in #mgq on rizon for a few days, and in the MGQ /vg/ general.
Still no release date for the game or a demo of MGQ Part 3 yet, by the way.
