Or am I really doing myself a disservice not waiting for Grandia I fan translation for Saturn first..

it seems like its pretty close to done, and I've waited this long, but curious!

and no way I'm touching the Grandia port for Switch with a 10 foot pole, I hear its a bad port of the PS1 version which was already less than desirable to boot

I know I am scared of the PS1 port.

yes it can be played, the characters are different.
also, if you start the second chapter, prob you don't need anything else for a couple of months :)
