Blue Submarine no.6 'Time & Tide' - English Translation for Sega Dreamcast


 

We are currently translating to English Blue Submarine no.6 'Time & Tide' (青の6号) for the awesome SEGA Dreamcast console. Patch is still WIP. 
Blue Submarine No. 6: Tides of Time is an post-apocalyptic underwater-exploration game with rpg elements and not-linear adaventure. Developed by SEGA and released for the Dreamcast in 2000. The game follows the exploits of a deep-sea salvage crew as they recover treasure.
The game includes FMV animation by Gonzo, a renowned Anime studio responsible for the original OVA and music perfomed by The Thrill. The game features characters from the anime like Tetsu Hayami or Verg.
