First and foremost, I need everyone to make note of something very important. The person hacking this game is NOT Gemini (who I worked with on Tales of Phantasia). Gemini is currently busy with Persona 2.
Kingcom (or KC as I have referred to him in the past) is the one hacking for this project.
I know that a lot of people here are familiar with the work that Gemini and I did, so I’m glad that when people refer to “that group who did ToP” it’s usually in a good light. However, it drives me crazy to know how much work Kingcom is putting into hacking this game only to have Gemini get credit for it. Both of these guys are absolutely incredible hackers and they’re both very worthy of your praise and thanks, but let’s make an effort to give credit where credit is due. Thanks.
So, with a fair number of votes in, I’m ready to settle on some names. If you would still like to cast a vote, the poll is still available at http://zettaizero.questionform.com/public/Innocence1. So, these should be the final names barring some kind of strong objection or huge swing in the votes. Most people seemed to agree with my choice of Luca and Asura, but Ilia was strongly rejected, so we’ve gone back to Iria. Also, Chitose no longer has an X in her name, so that’s great.

Translation and hacking are both progressing nicely. We do have other screenshots to show, but we don’t want to burn you guys out on them, especially until naming conventions are sorted out. As always, feel free to leave comments. I’m sure I’ll be hearing from those in the minority who voted for “Ruca” whether I like it or not. ^_^
