    Unwanted requests, Continued
    We are aware of the existence of (fortunately rare/out-of-print by now) Japan-exclusive UMD Video releases for the PSP containing animated softcore porn that may be offensively creepy pedophile/deviant POS, or so bad it's hilarious depending on your personal tastes.
    Sony hasn't been the first console maker that was so desperate to reverse the fortune of a struggling platform to the point of allowing porn outright. Sega and their Saturn, in a fit of brilliance, had pretty objectionable content too (Acclaim-published lolicon paper-rock-scissors "game" rewarding players with ... just don't google it)
    However:
    1/It's not exactly gaming-relevant
    2/Regardless, you WON'T find what you want here in this site.
    3/It's against GBATemp's TOS to feature "adult material"/copyrighted content. You'd be mocked, humiliated and banned (rightfully so, even).

    tl;dr: Don't ask for translations for PSP porn here (please)

    Older Consoles
    PSP can, thanks to homebrew, emulate a LOT of older systems.
    If you know of a game for those older systems that's Japan-only/unreleased in English, you don't ask for it here, since this is a PSP games thread, aka stuff released exclusively for the PSP after 2004.


    Meaning: No translation requests for these systems:
    NES/Famicom, SNES, Game Boy (Color), GBA, N64, PC-Engine, Master System, Megadrive, Saturn, Amiga, X68000, Wonderswan...
    Also no PS2, GC, Xbox, X360, PS3, Wii, PS4, Xbone, Wii U, DS, 3DS...

    PS1 translation requests are ALLOWED, provided you do a proper interesting request and the game actually needs Japanese knowledge to be finished at all.

    If you don't post your request in the way detailed below, don't post your request here.

    HOW YOU POST REQUESTS

    Game Name: Nayuta No Kiseki
    Developer/Publisher: Falcom
    Release: 26 June 2012
    Genre: Action RPG

    Does it have lots of text?
    Yes. Not quite as much as other Kiseki titles, but a lot for an Action RPG.

    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    Doesn't have a PC port, not even in China (only Trails main series, Ys Seven and YS Celceta PC ports).
    Falcom exec claimed he is pitching this game in E3 2013.
    Falcom games are exclusively published by Xseed in the West.
    Xseed's final PSP release is Brandish and Trails SC, this won't be localized by them.

    What is it about?
    An Ys-style Action RPG with emphasis on platforming, lots of elements from Zwei series (food, quests, doding) and an array of new combat moves, surpassing all of them.
    Diverse enemies, impressive boss fights (each designed with the same care of a final boss design), and one of the better graphics on the PSP.

    It's also decently long (25h for the first full playthrough, only opening two of the available four seasons!) and packed with content: seasons change massively levels, enemies and progression, focus is still on action more than puzzles, staying true to an YS 6/Felghana experience :)
    Lots of sidequests too! Each NPC has something different to say each chapter. And wonderful soundtrack as susal :P

    Only shortcomings are a somewhat confusing, sometimes basic plot (but isn't that too harsh a critisism with the already astronomical standards the main Trails turn-based series set?) and the need to play this on higher difficulties from the outset to get any of the challenge.

    Popularity in Japan:
    Well received in Famitsu's reviews and sales, especially for a PSP niche late release.

    Why I think it needs to be translated?

    The plot aside, this game has lots of side-content that really adds to the experience. Missing on these due to the high language barrier is a very real concern.
    The level of polish in this game warrants any care put towards making it more accessible for people not quite grasping its obscure kanji that well.

    What I can do to help:

    Can assist with proofreading
    Can prepare cheats and play through the (untranslated copy I have) pretty quickly
    am familiar with playing ittttt /is source material /its terminology
    Can help prepare graphics for buttons on a small bmp if a translator needs my help
    Can proofread the text for consistency

    Caaan I haazzz a Gintama english patch sir?

    Just kidding!



    Game Name: Gintama no Sugoroku (銀魂のすごろく)
    Developer/Publisher: Bandai Namco Games
    Release: 24 January 2013
    Genre: Board Game

    Does it have lots of text?
    Weeell, yes. Although the most important stuff are just the menus, card effects and events (some text and very few graphics).

    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    Board games in general aren't so popular in the West I think, with the exception of classics ofc (Monopoly, Chess, Mario Party, etc...). There're some series that had few localized titles like Culdcept Saga, Dokapon Kingdom (an SNES enhanced remake btw) and Fortune Street (first US release after almost 10 JP-only titles lol), but most never left Japan like Bomberman Wars, Dioramos, Gaia Master (this one is so beautiful T_T)...

    Also, Gintama isn't THAT popular outside Japan. Maybe cuz some strong scenes, (more than) suggestive themes and many cultural references hard to be understood and/or localized.

    What is it about?
    Hasegawa appears to Kagura, Gintoki and Shinpachi with a console called "VR Sugoroku" (c'mon, it's a Mega Drive! Again). Tempted by the possibilities of this virtual reality thing the three decide to play too and... The madness begins!

    Basically a pretty funny board game where players can use cards in battles, sabotages or simply to survive during some random insanity and so... So... Win, lol.

    There's also a drama maker, no big deal. Though the animations are nicely done (Live2D).

    Popularity in Japan:
    It's Gintama, highly popular in Japan! This game was one of the best-sellers in 2013.

    SPOILER

    Why I think it needs to be translated?
    Primarily because it's Gintama. Anyone who has watched (fansub please) knows that it's extremely funny, nonsense Japanese comedy at its apex!

    This game can provide hours of fun for sure, especially with friends (like many other board games).

    What I can do to help:
    Not much, seriously. Recently I lost two machines due to a storm. Oh, I also almost died electrocuted.

    Using a borrowed laptop atm.

    Just wanted to make it official since last time i just wrote "please translate"

    Game Name: Nanatama: Chronicle of Dungeon Maker
    Developer/Publisher: Global A
    Release: April 23, 2009
    Genre: Action RPG + Dungeon Builder

    Does it have lots of text?
    A bit of dialog much less then most games so far

    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    I have found little information about this game on internet seems to be one of those classics that fell through the cracks.

    What is it about?
    An Hack and Slash with weapons and spells also u can fight using a "ghost" i think that is what see is.
    Also has quests and food to raise you stats so hunting monsters is important.

    U also build up your own dungeon to lure in monster for weapons,food etc. and then u get the boss rooms plus u can change the decor of the halls the lure different monsters.

    Developer/Publisher: Alfa Systen / Namco
    Release: February 10, 2011
    Genre: Action RPG

    Does it have lots of text?
    Yes it has since tales games love there dialogs bu it has a english patch but was dropped by Judqment8, SK7000 and kenma9123

    Game Name: Blaze Union: Story to Reach the Future
    Developer/Publisher: Sting Entertainment / Atlus
    Release: 27 May 2010
    Genre: Tactical Role-playing

    Does it have lots of text?
    Yes.

    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    The PSP version of Yggdra Union, the prior game in this series, was released on 16 Sep 2008 by Atlus USA. I think that makes a release unlikely at this point.
    We can only get tiny hits about the degree of success game titles enjoy. This comment on PlayStation blog suggests that, as of 2010, Atlus was unhappy with sales of the prior title. Of course, the situation may have changed since then.

    What is it about?
    This prequel to Yggdra Union covers the story of Garlot, a knight of Bronquia, 3 months prior to the events in Yggdra Union. One of the endings leads up to the events in Yggdra Union. Early on, the main characters (Garlot, Siskier, Jenon, Medute) form a group named Gram Blaze, its stated goal being to establish order in their country.

    Popularity in Japan:
    Niche title, similar to the other games in its series. Sold 30,000 copies according to this. Similar performance to the other games in this series.

    Gameplay


    Why I think it needs to be translated?
    The first game (Yggdra Union) is good. This game has some small gameplay improvements; it's just as good as Yggdra Union.
    Blaze Union's score in Famitsu was 32 (8/8/8/8).

    What I can do to help:
    I can help with something probably. I'm not great at hacking or translating, but I can give it a try.
    I was the main translator for Brandish the Dark Revenant (Fan Translation Version) and I am the main hacker for Zero no Kiseki. I can probably help with something.
    This is a CRIWARE bigfile game. I got a tool that unpacks the bigfile here. I cannot make sense of the component files; some appear to be compressed or possibly encrypted.

    Nope, you probably confused with another title. Maybe even another Sting game (since they share similarities).

    Game Name: Time Travelers
    Developer/Publisher: Level 5
    Release: July 12, 2012
    Genre: Adventure, interactive drama


    Does it have lots of text?
    It has tons, must like a phoenix wright game.


    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    The game sold very poorly, even the vita and 3DS versions don't have much of a chance of coming over.


    What is it about?
    Starting out in a science lab where ace reporter Hina Fushimi is hurriedly interviewing Professor Shindo about his current project leading to a discussion of time travel as they enter his lab. On entering the lab they find it is in a state of emergency as the flux generator is out of control. After failed attempts to shut down the generator, they try to cut the power. Leading to hina's passage through time, and the explosion that tore the hole in the clouds. From there the story follows a group of characters looking into a large hole that appeared in the sky one day.


    Popularity in Japan:
    It bombed, hard.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Why I think it needs to be translated?
    It is a fun game, the story is interesting, the characters are nice, and while the gameplay has been done before in games like heavy rain, or phoenix wright. Time Travelers at least tries to put its own spin on things with being able to actively hop back and change what you did to see how things turn out.
    What I can do to help:

    Right now I can proofread, grammar, and edit images. I previously worked with crimson Nocturnal on their tales of hearts translation (as a text editor), things didn't go as planned but I can say I at least have experience. Will edit this if when I learn more beyond that.

    Game Name: Venus and Braves: Majo to Megami to Horobi no Yogen (English: Venus & Braves: The Witch and the Goddess and the Prophecy of Destruction)
    Developper/Publisher: Namco
    Release: January 20, 2011 (PS2 version February 13, 2003)
    Genre: Tactical RPG

    Does it have lots of text?
    Oh yes, it does.


    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    Essentially because the developper is Namco. Namco is well-known for NOT translating its titles, and, even worse, for not letting other companies do it.
    Hideo Baba (producer for the "Tales of" series - Namco) already told that the staff is so limited, they can't even work on every game they make... They have to focus on flagships.
    Clearly V&B isn't one they highlight as "flagship", because they could have done the translating part since...... yes, 2003.


    What is it about?
    This game is mainly about eternity. The hero (a retired legendary warrior) has to return as events occur, to save the world (sort of).
    While slashing his way to victory, he will recruit new members to build his team (up to 7 characters simultaneously).
    But what makes his history worth playing is that the war will take more than 100 years, and our hero is eternally young. He will not age, whereas his companions will. His strength will not decrease, unlike the others. He (you) will have to say goodbye to his (your) fellows, his (your) friends, either because they will die or be taken back from front battle lines, due to their age. And then, he will have to recruit new ones, although it breaks his heart, knowing that he will have to go through it all again some day.
    The game is divided into 2 major parts: dialogs, and battle.
    As for the battle, the player won't have many role in it after he has displayed his forces on the battlefield. Every fight has to be prepared beforehand: it's a lot more about jigsaw-puzzle than strategy evolution through battle.
    As you will be able to judge, the graphics (2D) look incredible on PSP, and the music is mind-blowing, too.

    A (roughly) 40-hours playthrough will be needed to see the end of it. (Way too short, if you ask me)

    Popularity in Japan:
    The title made it to top 10 japan sales his first week of appearance. Still, according to vgchartz, sold only 50.000 copies total for the psp remake (unknown for PS2).
    Famitsu gave the original game 34/40, 31/40 on PSP

    Why I think it needs to be translated?
    First of all, because this game is more than awesome. Lots of reviewers considered it as a masterpiece, back in 2003, and still did when the pep release occurred, which led me to playing this - and to be frustrated by having to read the storyline and to put my console aside. Anyone who had done this knows how much of a pain in the mmm it is.
    The gameplay is unique, challenging. The character design is great, and you tie very quick bonds with your teammates.... bonds that one will have to break, someday. I had never felt the weight of being unable to die and age like I felt it in this game.

    In the first part of the game, that is, because having to read my gamefaqs translation (actually, my legendra translation -I'm french) did bother me at one point... and now, knowing I chose to ignore such a load of brilliant moments comes back to haunt me.
    Also, I feel like I have to spread the good words to the world. If you like tactical, or RPGs, or both, playing this will please everyone, I just know it.

    You should consider that a great part of the english translation( and a nearly-full french translation) already exists. Done by a guy named Random Elf. Maybe he'll be eager to let his work be used?
    What's more, with the PSP version came a fault: the loading times are very annoying. I guess that having a patched game (and maybe play it on a emulator -is that forbidden to talk about such things here? - sorry if it is) will allow people to play the title at its best!

    Also, who doesn't want to translate a game where KOS-MOS makes a cameo? ;)


    What I can do to help:
    Well, that's the bad part. First of all, I'm french, and I think you can clearly see english is not my primary language.
    What's more, I know nothing of programming, patching, that kind of thing.
    I did patch and play my Shining Force III (1-2-3) copy on saturn, but that's the most difficult thing I had to do in my whole gamer's life, I swear.
    Finally, if anyone can see me fit for anything, even after all I've just said, I'll be glad to give a try!

    Beautifully done requests so far (I'm legitimately tempted to try some of the games above) -
    And by the way, anyone interested in one of the games listed in the red wishlist already could make a proper review/presentation post for it, like Time Travelers for example. Time Travelers, like Ni no Kuni, has VWF and latin letters already fully implemented for a localization, and it seems its concept is unconventional? Really interesting.


    And I apologize for the inconvenience of having the question "Why I don't think this will come out in the West?" which seems pointless now, especially given the PSP is currently dead outside Japan (save for whatever game Vic Ireland will release, and Xseed's Sora no Kiseki 2/Brandish already confirmed as the very last games for that platform by them)
    - If you want to put why this wasn't localized, or some funny trivia about a cancelled localization or an outright confirmation "we won't localize it", it would be welcome.


    ... what kind of black magic did you pull out to make a licensed anime game look interesting Hargrun ? :P (I love Gintama)


    Votre anglais est bien meilleur que le mien, en tout cas :P
    You could in theory talk about anything here in gbatemp as long as you don't post a link to somewhere posting isos. Why not, emulator talk is fine (but I heard PPSSPP still has imperfect emulation for the lesser known stuff mainly including PSP "Tales of" games, what about this one?)

    If "Venus and Brave" is sharing the same engine as "Seven PS2" (how does it compare to that one by the way? Heard V&B is the sequel for it, but seemed strange that Namco would pass it over for PSP ports for the sequel), it should have the English letters already programmed in but not using the proper width (game has fixed-width font).

    And get UMDGen.
    Try experimenting on DS games first since they're far easier to modify.

    If you want to change something like the programming, you'll need assembly know-how and tools (in PSP's case, mips) and a debug build of PPSSPP. But just focus on text edition for now :P (PPSSPP'd debug build is still useful for you even now if you want to have cheats)

    I've just tried V&B on PPSSPP, which is not the simplest of things since I'm on MacOS, but the ppsspp logs are very clear, and I managed somehow to make it work.
    V&B played great on my computer, for the first hour or so I've tried it. I created my save file in western letters allright, no problem. No loading screens on emulator, which is a lot more fun, too!

    I don't know about it being the sequel to Seven, cos' I haven't played it. I have read here and there that both titles have only the world in common, but neither the characters nor the time are the same. I guess we have to trust internet on this!

    Thanks for your interest, anyway! Cheers!

    Steam City
    Game Name: Super Robot Wars A Portable
    Developer/Publisher: Banpresto
    Release: June 19, 2008
    Genre: SRPG


    Does it have lots of text?
    Like all SRW games, it has a massive amount. One of the reasons that makes the series so awesome, is that the stories actually tend to be pretty good.

    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    The series are a licensing hell, getting a game brought over to the west would just be too expensive and just not viable. Sadly, I don't see this changing any-time soon so the only way to play these games, is for people to learn Japanese (doesn't help the fact that it has all those difficult kanji).

    What is it about?
    Giant Robots!
    Super Robots, Real Robots androids and just plain robots.
    The game like most in the series, happens in a fictional universe that joins many Mecha Series: Gundam, Getter Robo, Mazinger, Nadesico, etc.... The player gets to choose one of two characters (one male, one female) and then pick their sexy ride, either one of the two Super Robots, or one of the two Real Robots.
    During the course of the game, the player will have to make some choices, certain choices which will affect the course of the story. You will witness sadness, joy, romance, hate, and many other feelings.

    Popularity in Japan:
    It's a SRW, the games pretty much sell just by their name alone.

    Why I think it needs to be translated?
    I'm a huge fan of mechas and SRW is without a doubt my favourite SPRG game series. Just like me, there are many western fans of mecha series who are just dying to play this game. Besides the main theme however (mechas), the game is a solid strategy rpg, comparable to series like Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy Tactics (I'd actually rate SRW above them, but alas, I'm seriously biased). The game might be interesting for anime fans as well, I'd be lying if I didn't start watching one or two series simply because they appeared in the game and got my interest.

    What I can do to help:
    Sadly, I can't do much, I started learning Japanese a while back, but it's only basic stuff and I can't even read Kanji.
    I could however, help with type-checking, play-testing the game for bugs and help out with the terminology (skills, characters, worlds, mechas, etc). I'd love to help out on other ends like hacking and translating, but I'm seriously lacking in those aspects.

    The answer is NO.

    You don't even care about the game that much to write something about it like we all did here.
    How do you expect people to care for that dating sim long enough for a few months to translate it all on their own?

    Please edit your post to make it more the other more like the informative posts above.

    Until then,
    as long as your post is just the name of the game and nothing else,
    we'll just assume you don't care that much about that game

    and accordingly, people won't care that much about your request.

    Why it has to be translated?
    Well if you look at the series there are I think 8 Psp versions of this Starry sky series and It looks amazing.it isn't adult rated like a few other Visual novel psp games however it has a amazing storyline and it really would be great after it has been translated. So I ask any one who is up for taking the challenge of translating this game please please Do. Thank you.

    What can I do to help?
    I can't do much at all but I can possibly get help if you run into any troubles while translating this game. I am willing to proofread and help iut in anyway I can.

    To Ghamni can you add it to the list know please?

    Gambia, The
    Game Name: Summon Night 4 (I know it's in the Wish List, but I thought I'd made an actual post for it)
    Developer/Publisher: Banpresto
    Release: 2012 (for PSP at least)
    Genre: RPG


    Does it have lots of text?
    Yes, exceedingly. The game lets you choose between a boy and a girl main character. I'm not sure how much differs between the two as I've only played as the guy, but it makes for considerably more dialogue. You also get to choose between 3 different dragon partners, so each play-through of the game could have entirely different cut-scenes and dialogue depending on your partner.

    Why I don't think this will come out in the West?
    The main Summon Night series games got screwed.

    What is it about?
    Your main character (Rhye or Fahye) is the owner of an inn in a small town who one day finds a little lost dragonling (Ryurm, Coral, or Milleaf). This brings a whole new set of problems upon the town and your friends as different factions and enemies comes to claim the dragonling for their own and use their power to control an ancient floating city. Make so many new friends you won't be able to keep track of them all and summon all kinds of cute (and sometimes not-so-cute) monsters to unleash devastating magic attacks on your enemies in this strategy RPG/visual novel/dating game ("evening chats" with anyone in your party? hello!!).

    Popularity in Japan:
    The Summon Night series is pretty popular in Japan in general, though apparently 4 wasn't accepted as well as 3. I still love it though. Currently playing through 5 myself.

    Why I think it needs to be translated?
    If it's on the wishlist already, it seems a lot of people would like to see it translated. :) Personally, I just really enjoy this game and I love the characters.

    What I can do to help:
    I would love to translate this game. I've done a lot of freelance game translation and currently work as an in-house translator/editor for a game localization company full-time, but would love to work on my own projects for games I really love too (and that will never get localized). Unfortunately, I don't know a thing about programming, coding, messing with ROMs, and the like, so I really can't do a single thing unless I can find somebody with experience in the aforementioned tasks who'd want to help me on this project...
