    Kancolle Kai

    Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Kancolle Kai English Translation Thread.
    As you can see from the title, we are currently working on the English Translation of the game Kancolle Kai for the PS Vita. We have been working on this project for a couple months now but its only recently that we managed to find a way to install the patch without releasing a Pre-Patched version. We are making this second thread so that everyone can stay up to date with the project.

    While we are not yet finished with the translation, we have been working on partial patches (more specifically, Alpha versions 0.1 and 0.2 of the partial translations) which can be downloaded and installed using Henkaku. Those releases will not be included in this thread however considering they involve piracy. Releases posted on this thread will not involve piracy so if you're looking for the actuall game, then you will need to look somewhere else.

    The project is still a WIP but we will keep this thread updated constantly with the latest releases, updates, translations, fixes, announcements and more.

    Important: We are having some difficulties in translating some of the text in the game that cant be accessed or changed easily. More specifically, its embedded into the code of the game (Might not be the correct term) and we are having a bit of trouble translating them without breaking the game. For now we are going to have to stop translating (After the 0.3 release) until we figure how to make this work. We would greatly appreciate it if anyone who has an idea on how to solve this issue contact us on our Discord Server and see if we can aim for a complete translation of the game. So until then, we are gonna have to halt the project's progression. This doesn't mean that we are going to be dead though, we will still make small hotfixes if necessary for bugs that are found in the translation.

    Now onto a separate matter, some people have been having some difficulties in completing the quests because of the inconsistency of the quest's translation (Now fixed in the 0.3 release), So we decided to include a simple area guide of the Kancolle Kai map, just to make everyone's lives a bit easier if you get lost at sea.
    Note: The game starts at Naval District Sea [V1].

    You'll probably want to specify what issues you have as there is/was a save bug that happens while using henkaku where the microSD card won't be able to save if you play for too long or put your game in sleep mode for too long.

    Hello, I feel like I'm super late for this, but I just got Kantai Kai and just found this thread. I'm running 3.63. Is there any way a patch for this version could be coming out, or if not, is there any way I could support such a project?

    welcome to the club :)
    sadly the patch cannot run for 3.63 and i don't know if it will happen in the future.
    if you want to support the project either help us with the code of the game or tell people that we need help.


    WE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR HELP/KNOWLEDGE FOR THE GAME CODE (Might not be the correct term)
