    Here’s an English port of Catherine: Full Body since Atlus decided not to localize it to the Vita then to rub more salt in our wounds decided to make a poll and include this game to one of the possible games to be ported to the switch. Oh yeah, Before I start and probably wondering how is this possible. I don’t have any secret hacks or exploits for the PS4 to get the English assets. This is just good old-fashioned transcribing text from numerous videos on YouTube and my own gameplay. So, most of the untranslated text you may see are text that I have not encounter during my numerous playthrough.

    Since there’s a bit progress on the PS4 scene about backporting and decrypting higher firmware games. I decided to wait for that process to mature, be public and have more comprehensive guide before completing this port and save myself from manually typing what I see on the screen. The port is mostly playable, probably 80% and if you play just the story and ignoring random dialogs of the NPC’s you’ll mostly see English text and get all the 13 endings and since today is the anniversary of the release date of this game for the vita here’s the playable BETA English port for everyone to enjoy.

    Change log:
    v0.80 (Initial BETA release)

    What’s translated:
    ○ All Images that contain text used in menu’s and such
    ○ Regular Menu/Navigation Text
    ○ 99% of the Cut-scene and FMV
    ○ 90% of the cellphone messages
    ○ 80% of the NPC on the Lounge and Landings (nightmare)
    ○ All Confessional Questions
    ○ 70% Quotes on loading screen

    What’s NOT translated:
    ○ Most of the Multiplayer mode (PS4 version needs PS+ so can’t see the text there)
    ○ Arrow labels

    Known bugs:
    Some text that on cellphone and confessional may have cuts
    Maybe some typo’s (since again it’s a manual port and English is not my native language)
    Others, you can message me if you found one.

    ○ Hacked Vita (Enso/h-encore 3.60/3.65/3.68/3.73)
    ○ Repatch plugin (installed on the Vita and verified working)
    ○ NoNpDrm plugin (installed on the Vita and verified working)
    ○ Vitashell
    ○ FTP program (Winscp recommended)
    ○ This English patch

    How to patch (Windows):

    12. Copy PCSG01179 folder to the PC (C_FB_v0.80_BETA_patcher) folder and rename it to PCSG01179_update
    13. Run patch_decrypted.bat, follow its instruction and wait for it to finish patching

    How to install:

    2. Run the game.

    Additional Notes:
    You may also need to sync your vita clock online on the Settings -> Date & Time -> Date & Time Settings -> Set via Internet. well the game instructs you anyways.
    ○ You need to have a overclock plug-in if you used the English mod with 960×544 resolution patch.

    Thanks you, but I only upload patches from an android phone. So it's kind a no for me atm.

    I have no access to the actual PS4 files and just manually type the translation, so manually grabbing the audio, separating the BGM sound from the vocal is beyond me and got no tools to achieve it.

    once the decrypting of higher firmware games for the PS4 is available and normal users can decrypt their own games, then it becomes a possibility.

    I believe there are xdelta patchers for andoid but the problem you manually patch it one file at a time and this games has 56 modded files, so it can be quite difficult but maybe possible.

    Wow, that’s a lot of dedication that deserves a ton of respect. Thank you for this.
    I really hope that someday the scene of porting translations to vita games grows, because there’s still a top of untapped potential there.
    I know PS4 decryption doesn’t help and actually retyping everything like you did is a ridiculous commitment to expect from anyone, but at least, in other cases (like Yu-No), Steam and Switch versions exist.
