E.X. Troopers English Translation Patch
This is a full English translation patch for E.X. Troopers, a spin-off game in the Lost Planet series and exclusive to Japan on PS3 and 3DS. November 22, 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of the game’s original release.
After 7 years of working on this project, we are excited to finally share our results. We have faced so many challenges while translating this game, ranging from reverse engineering the game’s files, overcoming multiple technical limitations of the game’s engine, translating over 17,000 individual Japanese lines, replacing hundreds of speech bubbles in pre-rendered videos, to releasing this patch for two completely different systems simultaneously.
We have poured so much into making this and are proud to finally release it.

Great work! Does this patch work on the digital version (PSN)?
Unfortunately no. This patch on PS3 only works with the disc version of the game.
Glorious translation, i loved this game on PS3 and finally i will be able to enjoy the dialogues too.
Best Lost Planet game ever.
Tested it and videos and hud work fine but menus and emails are in japanese.
Redo the patch steps. You’ve done something wrong.
Thank you for making this translation. I played RD2K3’s google-translation and am now playing through again with a better idea of what people are saying : ).
I have just started Ep 2 and would like to report an issue with the 3DS version – the subtitles in the cutscene where we meet Diana have something weird going on. I suspect that the left and right images are swapped – I get two copies of the text when the 3D is on that only get further apart if I cross my eyes, but everything is normal with the 3D off.
Is there somewhere else I should go to discuss this with the devs? Discord?
Yeah, the discord is the best place.
This patch is pretty big, 1.5gb. If you use digital game that’s 2.5gb that 4gb already, or it’ll replace some files and it’ll be 2.5gb in the end?
It’s a game update, replacing files in the digital version is not possible. That’s not how updates on 3DS work.
Sorry if this comment comes in twice – there was no confirmation on the screen that my comment posted:
Can someone seed the torrents, please? (Both for the 3DS and PS3 files.)
Thank you so much for your hard work!
You linked me here on Twitter and then deleted your tweet, but I wanted to say thanks.
