E.X. Troopers English Translation Patch

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.

  1. Glorious translation, i loved this game on PS3 and finally i will be able to enjoy the dialogues too.
    Best Lost Planet game ever.

  2. 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?

  3. 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?

  4. 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!

  5. Is it normal for the PS3 patcher to hang on “Verifying opening.pam…: Valid!”?
    It hangs on that file and I can’t mute the music, nor press cancel or minimize/close the installer.
    I see the green bar glowing, but everything else look freezed.

  6. Just want to say bless you all and thank you. It’s like a surreal dream to be playing this and fully understand it all.

    Back then I imported a physical copy on PS3, and played it by occasionally using Google Translate on my phone to translate key bits here and there. It was one of my favorite game experiences, but there was a lot missing.

    But now I’ll play it again and nothing will be missing. I’m so looking forward to experiencing it with all the characters and dialogue.
