Released in 2008, L the ProLogue to Death Note is the last of three Japan-exclusive DS games based on the Death Note license. An escape game, it features an original story set before the events of the main series. It sees players take on the role of a rookie FBI agent who awakens to find themselves imprisoned in an unknown location.

Team up with the world’s greatest detective, L, to solve traps and puzzles while attempting to uncover the truth behind the mysterious kidnapping. Use the information you’ve gathered at each stage in the game’s Deduction Mode and put your reasoning skills to the test to get a step closer to one of six possible endings.

In the optional L Communicator Mode, you can chat with L in real-time and bond over snacks. As you get closer to him, the main game will change as well…

Usage:
Before you can play the translation, you'll need to patch the game on a computer using a legal copy of the ROM, which you must supply yourself. (Note that you cannot patch the translation onto the original game cartridge.)

You can either patch the game online, via the ROMhacking.net download page, or locally by downloading an additional piece of software.

ONLINE METHOD
-Login, or create an account at ROMhacking.net
-On the ROMhacking.net download page, navigate to "Patch Online NOW!" under the 'Links' header.
-Upload your copy of the ROM using the "Choose File" button.
-Click "Apply Patch", and wait for the download to complete. You should now have a patched copy of the ROM, labelled '-input source- (patched)'.

SOFTWARE METHOD
-Download DeltaPatcher from https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/704/
-Extract the file, and run either DeltaPatcher or DeltaPatcherLite.
-'Original file' should be your copy of the ROM as an '.nds' filetype.
-For 'XDelta patch', choose the 'ProLoguePatch.xdelta' file.
-Hit apply patch, and you're good to go!

*Note that this will overwrite your original file. If you'd like to keep a copy of it instead, change the settings by clicking the cog icon, and tick "Backup original file". This will create a new '--PATCHED.nds' file instead.

Running the Game
You can play the patched game on the emulator or hardware of your choice.

ON HARDWARE
To play the game on the original NDS/DS Lite, you will need to purchase an extra piece of hardware called a flashcart (alt. flashcard), which looks like a DS game cartridge and includes a slot for a MicroSD card. There are also carts compatible with the DSi and 2/3DS models, so please look before you buy.

Alternatively, if you own a DSi or 2/3DS, you have the option of installing custom firmware (CFW) and a DS Game Forwarder such as TWiLight Menu++ to load DS games directly from your console's internal SD card.

See https://dsi.cfw.guide/ (DSi) or https://3ds.hacks.guide/ (2/3DS) for more information and instructions.

VIA EMULATOR
DS emulators are available on a range of hardware, including PC, mobile and other game consoles. See below for a list of the most popular recommended emulators.

Windows 7+, Mac OS, Linux – MelonDS
Android –DraStic (Premium), RetroArch (Free)
iOS – RetroArch
Nintendo Switch – MelonDS (You will need to install custom firmware on a compatible Switch first.)

See our beginner's guide to NDS patching for more info if you need help.

Love Death Note?
Why not check out our English patch for the first DS game, the Kira Game? Or, if you’re a Japanese translator, please consider getting in touch with us to help bring a patch for the second game, Successors to L, to reality!
