Soul Eater: Battle Resonance, released for the PS2 and PSP in 2009, is now fully playable in English.

With an adventure mode that follows the events of the original series from the Remedial Lessons arc to the A Fight to the Death at the Big Bash arc and a translation which references the official FUNimation dub, you’ll be able to experience the beloved story in an all-new way.

Take control of 13 playable characters in this traditional 2.5D fighting game featuring recognizable attacks and stylish resonance arts. In addition to the adventure, there are versus, team battle, and arcade modes for you to continue the battle long after the 51-mission story has ended.

Usage:
Before you can play the translation, you'll need to patch the game on your computer using a legal copy of the ROM. There are two methods by which this can be done, online, via the ROMhacking.net download page, or locally by downloading an additional piece of software.

Please ensure you have downloaded the correct patch for the version of the game you are using before proceeding.

ONLINE METHOD
-On the ROMhacking.net download page, navigate to “Patch Online NOW!” under the ‘Links’ header.
-Upload your ROM using the “Choose File” button where prompted.
-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 '.iso' filetype.
-For 'XDelta patch', choose the 'Resonance(platform).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.iso’ file instead.

The PS2 version looks cool just because there is a mode named "Soul Theater" where you unlock screenshots from the Soul Eater anime as you progress in the game.

However, since my computer won't run any PS2 stuff at all, I'll have to head on to the PSP version which doesn't have this mode. Never mind!

Any plans on adding subs to the opening and other fmv's (if there are more) on adventure mode and character intros before the fight starts?
