Back in October, we took a look at the seven official Attack on Titan games coming out in Japan. Of these, four are visual novels included on the Japanese Blu-rays. Of course, if you can’t speak Japanese, there’s a good chance you’ll never be able to experience these side stories—until now, that is.

The team over at White Flower Translations, who regularly translate manga, light novels, and drama CDs, have decided to pick up all four games as one of its ongoing projects.

But more than simply translating the script, the WFT team is adding in a few screen shots and the accompanying background music to set the stage as you read. Of course, for the full experience—i.e. complete with voice acting—you'll need to pick up the Japanese Blu-ray to go along with the translations.

Currently only the beginning of Lost in the Cruel World, the first of the four visual novels, has been posted online, though they plan to do all four games eventually.

To check out the translation for yourself, head on over to the White Flower Translations homepage.

Attack on Titan: Lost in the Cruel World was released in Japan on the third Attack on Titan Blu-ray on September 18, 2013. Attack on Titan: A Choice with No Regrets, Attack on Titan: Wall Sina, Goodbye and Attack on Titan: Brightly Burning in the Forest of Pitch Black Night will be released on the sixth Attack on Titan Blu-ray on December 18, 2013.

What do the novels actually cover? Are they just a different version of the anime, or are they "things that were going on at the same time but weren't shown," or "story with side characters lol."
