THIS PAGE IS BEING WORKED ON, PREPARE FOR IT TO TAKE A WHILE UNTIL IT'S FINISHED.


Only a small percentage of the Japanese/Chinese/etc. exclusive games that have a rom translation actually have a link in their descriptions (and most people don't know where to look), So to help those in need, this is a page dedicated to listing those games (as well as games that have Japanese/Chinese/etc. versions superior to localized ones), the status of their translation patch, and a link to where to get it, a small description is also added if needed.

There will also be a section dedicated to rom patching, hard- vs. soft-patching, software that are known to work with soft-patching, how to on how you hard patch your roms, as well as information about using ROM patches that work on copiers, eventually that is.


Note that most (all?) games are listed after their original name, so if you're for example looking for The King of Demons to SNES, It's under M for Majyuu Ou. The original names should be in the title section of the other pages. All games still have the translated names as well in the title, but not first.


PROTIP: Press CTRL+F (or CMD+F if you're a macfag) and type the name if you can't find it.

ROM PatchingEdit

More information will be added here soon, until then, just follow the instructions that came with the downloaded patch.


Soft- vs. Hard-patchingEdit

Soft-patching, Software known to workEdit

Hard-patching, How toEdit

BPS / IPS / PPF / FF / UPS / RXL / PDS / (TEENAGE MUTANT) NINJA (TURTLES)


ROM Patching for use on a CopierEdit

Did you know that there was a type of hardware back in the day (as early as on the NES) called a Copier, similar to modern modchips/flash cartridges?, Did you know that there are sometimes specific translation patches needed for the roms to work properly on them?, More on that as soon as OP gets productive and adds some proper shit to this section.

Title Genre Author(s) Status Description Link
Bomberman Jetters: Densetsu no Bomberman RPG / Action-Adventure ? No translation, but if you're willing, you could complete it with just iggnoring the dialogue, everything is easy enough to figure out gameplay-wise.
Crayon Shin-Chan: Arashi no Yobu Cinema-Land Daibouken! Platformer ? Story is so strange it wouldn't really make any sence in English either way, and knowledge of Japanese isn't needed in gameplay.
Crayon Shin-Chan: Densetsu o Yobu Omake no To Shukkugaan! Platformer ? The intro is tough to get past if you dont know Japanese, but if you do, you should be able to play it without a translation.
Densetsu no Stafy Platformer ? Most (all?) people you talk to just asks you to bring them shit, luckily, the game is linear enough for you to find them even if you don't know what you're supposed to get, in other world, fully playable without the need to know Japanese.
Densetsu no Stafy 2 Platformer ? As above?
Densetsu no Stafy 3 Platformer ? As above?
Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart RPG KaioShin Fully Playable Here
Elemix! Run and Gun ? It's a Shmup (although a bit different from your standard shmups), and as with most shmups, you shouldn't need to know Japanese to be able to get though the game.
Elevator Action: Old and New Puzzle ? No need for a translation really, as the gameplay is pretty straight forward.
F-Zero: Climax Racing Clank Hughes Unfinished Only translates the storyline, pilot names, and control options. Here
Fire Emblem: Fuin no Tsurugi / Fire Emblem 6: Sword of Seals SRPG Dark Twilkitri Net Translation Division & Eaichu Unfinished Most of the dialogue have been translated, the prologue, class demo and opening movie is still untranslated, and there are a few bugs here and there. Here
Guru Logic Champ Puzzle ? Storyline goes as follows: The blue bird bastards keep stealing shit, your job is to get the shit back, now you know and don't need to know Japanese to play anymore, Gameplay is straight forward.

Monster Gate RPG / Roguelike ?
Monster Guardian RPG / Roguelike ?
Monster Summoner RPG / Roguelike ?
Mother 1+2 RPG Jeffman & Tomato Fully Playable Note that ONLY Mother 1 is translated, if you wan't to play Mother 2, get Earthbound for the SNES instead. The authors have also added a "Easy Ring" to your inventory for double XP if you're a newfag to RPG's. Here

Super Robot Taisen J SRPG\Turn-Based\Mech The Romhacking Aerie Fully Playable The whole thing has been translated, from the menus to both routes' storyline, and that's no small amount of work. Super Robot Taisen (Wars) J is part of Banpresto's long-running franchise of turn-based games featuring crossovers between several Mech\Robot based anime series. J's graphics are the best among the games from the series on the GBA, sporting fully animated moves for all characters, being on par with those seem on SRTW, on the DS, besides marking the first appearance of Full Metal Panic! and Tekkaman Blade on the franchise. Here
Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 2 RPG Kajitani-Eizan Unfinished It’s half-finished (okay, maybe less than half). Specifically, the intro to the game, key events that move the plot along, random skits, and a lot of miscellaneous dialogue that helps you know what you’re supposed to do are done. Here
Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 3 RPG Kajitani-Eizan Unfinished As with the above release, some things are done, some things aint so much. Not really playable just yet. Here
Zoids Saga JRPG ? ? ? ?
Zoids Saga 2 (Legacy) JRPG None Poorly Localized To be clear: This game WAS localized but, in a major example of half-assing a job, the whole thing looks like it was done by a team of very clever monkeys. You have typos, straight conversions from Kana\Hiragana to romaji, he\she mixups and a whole lot of very weird-sounding sentences. You CAN play to game if you are able to ignore those things, though. No solid project to fix this one has been announced yet. And, yes, they "translated" the sequel, but not the first game. Go figure. ?
