English translation demo preview


After another long hiatus finally finished another translation project upon the request of one of my good friends at vita3k. I never thought I’d do another translation project as life/health has been catching up on me. But my friend’s enthusiasm for the game kinda motivates me enough to do this project. So, for the fan of the manga and anime, you may thank him for this translation.

The game may not be for everyone’s taste because of the fan services and boobies. But hey, somebody got to do the dirty work with these games.

This is translation using machine/AI translation and then edited by a non-English speaker to make it a bit understandable. I’ll plan to release the Quickbms scripts I’ve created to rip/repack the *.cat files in the future here my blog. So, anyone could fix the translation if they want to or translate it to another language. I just need time to fix my scripts so they would be a bit user-friendly. Just don’t expect a clean code, as I’m also no programmer.

Change log: v1.05


What’s currently done:

○ All Character event text
○ All Character dialog at home
○ Story dialog
○ All Boss Battle text skit
○ All Costume/DLC names
○ All Weapons/Parts/Drops text
○ Tutorial text
○ Tutorial in-game images fixes
○ All Menu texts
○ All image format text
○ A few fonts edits/adjustment
○ Karaoke subs on the OP FMV
○ Credits

What’s not translated:
○ Trophies
○ Name Tags on characters swimsuits
○ Manual

Known bugs:
○ Some image text may appear too small or squished
○ Let me know if you found another one.

Additional Notes:
○ Use vitacheat sparingly or disable it after a dungeon run.
○ Vitacheat can cause screen flickering when enabling Max combo cheat
○ Vitacheat may cause a permanent issue to your save file, like being unable to activate event points on chapter 12 if you kill the enemy with an instant kill cheat.
○ Vitacheat may also cause you to be unable to activate some challenge mission and will carry over to your save and won’t reset until you make a new one.
○ A crash is most likely to occur on stages 20-25 when you kill many enemies on screen in a short period (ex.. 50 enemies in 5 sec) with cheats with or without the English patch. Killing enemies without instant kill does not trigger the crash.
○ You can play as Riko after finishing the game by stepping in the teleporter and pressing SELECT upon entering the dungeon.
○ The game auto-saves after an event or exiting a dungeon. This is the only way to save the game.
○ This game and english patch is working on Vita3k

PS VITA Requirements:
○ Vita game Title ID: PCSG00330 + game update version 1.01
○ Hacked Vita (Enso/h-encore 3.60/3.65/3.74)
○ Repatch plugin (installed on the Vita and verified working) (dots-tb rePatch reDux0 does not work on 3.74, use SonicMastr/rePatch-reLoaded on vita higher than 3.65)
○ NoNpDrm plugin (installed on the Vita and verified working)
○ re00d v1.1/0syscall6
○ Vitashell
○ FTP program (Winscp recommended, for decrypted file dumping)
○ This English patch

You guys are really weird if a boobie game makes you regret owning a console. It's definitely not a healthy reaction.

Heck yeah, I recently got interested in To Love Ru and I can't wait to check this game out (Ignore PacBunny's usual stupid and bigot comments). Is there any hope of seeing that 3DS Highschool DxD title in English too?

I’m hoping for Genkai Tokki Seven Pirates it received an official English translation on the Switch but I have the PS Vita version and the game seems really fun.

Sorry for the delay got sidetracked helping out a reddit user make an uncensored patch for Senran Kagura Burst renewal for the PS4.

Updated post and released the English patch.

BTW due to there are no updated tools to decrypt DLC for the Vita, I cannot include the translation for DLC in the legal patcher since there's no easy way for you to obtain a decrypted DLC. just search google or reddit for the translated DLC costume names.
