Merry Christmas!!!


Merry Christmas everyone!

While I’m sure many of our readers were disappointed by my last post, I’m very grateful for the way you guys have shown support for us despite the delay. So we want to show you that your support is appreciated, and that we haven’t forgotten about our loyal fans out there, still waiting for the Re:Digitize patch, and since it’s Christmas, we thought that today calls for a present.

And we got you one ;) Without any further adieu, I hereby announce our next project, which we will start work on immediately following Re:Digitize. It is none other than its worthy successor for the 3DS: Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode.

This project was on our minds the second Decode was announced, and I’m glad to inform you everyone that now we have the means to actually bring you the translation for this wonderful game.

Please take a look at the following video:

High Resolution Download

Now obviously this is to be considered as a first draft, with things subject to change, but I hope this is a sufficient proof of concept demonstration to show that a translation of a 3DS game is indeed possible. I also hope that the video is sufficient proof that this is definitely real and not a fake. Please also take this as a sign that we’re really close to the finish line with Re:Digitize.

There are certain things worth noticing about this video. First, we have been able to successfully insert edited images, as you can see in the battle menus and such. But moreover, and most importantly, we successfully ported over our Re:Digitize translation to Decode (only the strings that are a 100% match with the original), which means that a substantial amount of work is done already. However, please understand that Decode is HUGE and not a simple port. Decode is at least twice the length of the PSP game, and as such will definitely take some time to translate.

Enjoy, and have a merry Christmas, everyone!

    OH MY GOD! You guys are finally going to do it! I’m so excited. This is also going to be the first MAJOR 3DS translation effort. And it’s such a well wanted game, oh god! You’re making thousands of people happy right now! Amazing christmas gift <3 Thanks for being amazing guys!


  2. christmasknightmon Says:

    As soon as I got the email I rushed over to thank you guys! Seriously, I signed the decode petition back around the same time I started following this translation project (oct. ’13) I was getting seriously bummed at bamco, but with you great folks on the job, I can gladly wait a few more years if necessary. can’t wait to see this project completed and the next as well, this is the best Christmas present a digimon fan could wish for! Have a merry Christmas and new year, and take as much time as you need to recoup from the holidays.


  3. Napi Says:

    At last, it almost there. Good job guys. Without you guys we dont stand a chance to have it in english.

    I wonder, are this 3ds game gonna be able to cross region? Since , all of flash card not able to play cross region game or simulate region . But, still a big surprise. Happy holidays all and travel safely.


  4. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @Napi: If you have a Gateway compatible 3DS (currently only 3DSs with version 4.1-4.5 firmware, but that’s supposed to change in the next few days), you can play any game from any region. The 3DS XL in the video (mine) is a US model, but it’s playing a Japanese game.


  5. azurezeed Says:

    yeey now i need to buy a 3ds, and is really a good thing that nintendo is now allowing to play any game of any region in any 3ds


  6. Gabraham Says:

    Wow, I thought the 3DS version was going to be one of those games that I would never get to enjoy in my wildest dreams. Amazing that you guys are going to put in more months of work and make that game accessible to us English speakers too. Really putting Bandai to shame here.

    I’m really looking forward to playing this game in all its glory. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and Merry Christmas to all of you!


  7. KonanDoyle Says:

    oh yeah! Almost there


  8. Bubu-Chan Says:

    Really really looking forward to this omg. Good job . Merry Christmas 😻

    Merry Christmas to all of you, wishing you all the best :)


  14. Anonymous Says:

    Cooll guys you opened a gate to the new world of 3DS.
    By the way, from the video I suppose there is no suck thing as 3DS
    emulatior ???


  15. NeoWolf Says:

    Wow that’s awesome and so are you guys !
    Merry Christmas :)


  16. John Says:

    Whats the tool that you use to translate the psp game? I want to do a portuguese version. Can you release the tool please?


  17. SHSLTorturer Says:

    Wow, that’s AWESOME! But… how can we play a patched game for 3ds? Is it like the r4?


  18. Jamie Says:

    I am so happy about this! God damn it guys, you’re amazing!


  19. DemonKingKenji Says:

    thanks for the great news I also signed the petition to get this translated a while back but bamco are grubby bastards and don’t like its world wide fans this will be great to finally be able to play a great digimon game on my 3dsxl since it started to refuse my dawn game


  20. Juho Says:

    Thats awesome, so how is the decode so different? is it like an expansion?


  21. neo Says:

    You guys are awesome. It is a great time to be a 3ds owner! Translations, undubs… LIFE’S GOOD! So, if you excue me… brb getting a gateway~


  22. Richard Criscione Says:

    cool but how will people be able to use it?


  23. Romsstar Says:

    @Richard Criscione:
    I ask you to refer to the video we have shown, which should give you a basic idea.


  24. Kota Says:

    Thanks so much guys, I have no words to express this gratitude!


  25. Zanzoltan Says:

    Merry X-mas to you too people. And here’s hoping for a great new year to everyone there working on this :D



  26. Neal cullum Says:

    Thanks for your hard work and I look forward to the psp release 👶


  27. lodgears Says:

    Great news guys! Thanks again! I’ll definitely try the 3DS version some day too.


  28. NeoWolf Says:

    Wow this is awesome , :) . So will I need a gateway card and decode to play this?


  29. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @Anonymous: No, there is no such thing as a working 3DS emulator. Although several groups are trying to make one, none have gotten very far.

    @John: I’ll talk to everyone about it, I have no objection once we finish the English version, but they’re not my tools, so we’ll see.

    @SHSLTorturer: You’ll need a flashcart, Gateway was the first company to make one, and they tend to have the most up to date features, but there are clones.

    @Juho: They’re almost completely different games, File Island is almost twice as large as it was in Re:Digitize, there are two more human characters in the story, and the story itself is about three times as long as it was in Re:Digitize. Plus there’s a bunch of new Digimon you can evolve to.

    @Richard Criscione: You’ll need a 3DS and a flashcart, those currently run only on 3DSs with firmware between versions 4.1-4.5, but that is expected to change in the next few days. From there, you’ll use XDelta, the same patching tool you’ll need for the PSP version, and a ROM of Decode, which you can get by going in to Gateway mode with the Decode cartridge in the slot and backing it up.


  30. Huntar Says:

    Pretty excited to see this announcement. I really hope that the flash carts open up significantly in the future though, since older FW 3DSs are getting pretty rare, and I’m not exactly excited about buying a new one anyway.

    Still, I’m glad that the 3DS version will be available in English eventually, even if I can’t personally play it.


  31. Totoro Says:

    wait, is 3ds hacked already ? can we play hacked games on 3ds ? :o
    if it is can someone teach me how to do it ?

    anyway great work!! i’m looking forward for both translations, godspeed for you guys!


  32. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @Huntar: In the next few days Gateway says they’ll be releasing version 2.8 of their software, which should work on all 3DSs running 4.1-9.2, so if you have a 3DS and you haven’t updated it in the last month or so you should be fine.

    @Toronto: That depends on what you mean. The 3DS can be made to play games off a flashcart relatively easily, you just need a Gateway and a 3DS running the right firmware. Playing a translated or otherwise hacked game is relatively easy as well, you just get a ROM, and apply a patch to it, then play it like any other game on the cart. Hacking the games themselves to create a translation patch is quite difficult, and CompCom is the only person that I am aware of who has made a complete set of tools to hack any game, and those will only work on Decode unless they are modified for each game.


  33. clorff Says:

    Holy crap… I thought it would take a few years before 3DS fan-translations would start poping up, definitely stocked for this.
    But I must ask, will you ever go back to Digimon Adventure?


  34. Renaldi Saputra Says:

    I’m not sure if this is a good news or not. But, hmmm this is so controversial. I knew you guys had fed up bcos Bamco didn’t localize this for 1,5 years. But…. well….


  35. cryum Says:

    The translations are compatible, awesome!


  36. Rai Says:

    @Renaldi: I’m… having a hard time figuring out what you’re talking about…?


  37. Skullbazon Says:

    yisssss!!!!, thank you guys for the great work!!!!, have a mery christmas and a great new year!


  38. Numemon Says:

    @Renaldli Mind elaborating what is controversial about this announcement?


  39. Gekigami Rulla Says:

    Wait a second, but you are not translating well to the PSP version ? O.o


  40. Huntar Says:

    Well, that sucks. I wish I had known that they were expanding the working range for their card. I ended up updating my 3DS just a while ago after keeping it unupdated for a good length of time. That’ll show me for getting impatient.


  41. mikael Says:

    @Gekigami you seem to be confused, one of the first things mentioned in this post was that the 3DS game was to be their next project after they finished re:digitize the psp game.

    So no this announcement in no way implies that they suddenly decided to stop work on the psp version, which from the sound of things is pretty much 99% done at this point anyway so dropping it now would be lunacy.


  42. Shalnark Says:

    Hold on a second , What happen to the PSP version translation project ?
    Look , i don’t care if it has some typo problems , i don’t care if some of the game is google translated
    ARRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH .. sorry I’m starting to losing it :3


  43. Ray Cefiro Says:

    @shalnark : I agreed with you
    we don’t need 100%
    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year


  44. deadstalkers Says:

    Shalnark and Ray Cefiro don’t be rude and start asking them to give you the patch before they finish it just wait like the rest of us and stop being little babys.


  45. yoshichao Says:

    Uhh, I just want to ask you two guys asking about the PSP version: did you guys read any of this post or its comments?

    I know some people like being annoying on purpose, but come on, make a limit to the stuff you say or at least read the post before you take the time to mindlessly comment.


  46. matthewzmd Says:

    WOW!! How is this possible?! Impressive! Keep up the good work guys, I am excited for Decode already! :D


  47. Gekigami Rulla Says:

    @mikael I understand. ^^


  48. Gekigami Rulla Says:

    @yoshichao I am Italian , and why I do not read English well at 100%.
    I understand that I should have read the comments but especially during the holidays it’s hard . XD


  49. Rai Says:

    To the people asking about them “dropping” PSP verion: Are you fucking retarded? It’s in the second bloody paragraph. “Next project”.

    I swear, some of the fucking humans on this planet have the mental capacity of a pebble..


  50. hufflepuff Says:

    Ohh how exciting! If I play the PSP version and I also want to play the 3DS version, will I spoil anything for myself? I’ve been really looking forward to your PSP patch, now I don’t know whether to wait for the 3DS patch!

    Anyway thanks very much guys. It must feel good knowing you’re nearly there and see your work complete. :)


  51. jeanme132 Says:

    Please Rai, Be A little Sensitive, I’ve seen some very smart pebbles, Dont offend the pebbles ;)


  52. Hara-chan Says:

    @hufflepuff I second that!
    I too am torn between giving in to the temptation and playing the PSP version, or waiting a few more months for the much better 3DS version :/


  53. Rai Says:

    @Jeanme: I’m sorry ;_; I’ll be careful from now on to respect the pebbles.


  54. deadstalkers Says:

    now you only need to find a 3ds with firmware 4.5 and below


  55. Rai Says:

    Wrong. Gateway’s updating their firmware to work on 9.2 and below. Research before stating things, please.


  56. deadstalkers Says:

    well i did at the moment it only works on 4.5 and below


  57. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    I would recommend playing the PSP version when it comes out. I haven’t played all the way through the 3DS version, but the stories are relatively different. Plus, calling it a few months to translate Decode is extremely optimistic. I would plan on it taking at least a year. This project took two, and while we have some advantages going in to this project that we didn’t have when starting Re:Digitize, Decode is a much larger game.


  58. Emily Says:

    I’ve been following your blog for ages now and was so excited to play the PSP version in English, but now I’ll be able to understand the 3DS version too!!

    Thank you so much! I have the 3DS version but obviously don’t really know what I’m doing so thank you again, you guys are awesome! :D x


  59. Rai Says:

    Deadstalkers: Gateway have already said they have a way for the cards to work on 9.2 and before. I would count that as working “at the moment”.


  60. KonanDoyle Says:

    Knowing its almost done lets just play a guessing game in which the patch will be released. Dec.30 is my card.hehehe


  61. Nate Jenner Says:

    gimmie summa dat digimon hype, i hope you guys saw my thread on gba temp about recode, ive just infomed everyone and reposted the video, we cant wait, thank you sporky and team!


  62. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @KonanDoyle: Sorry to disappoint, but no. I’ve been working on this some since our delay announcement, but frankly, I decided to take a few days off over Christmas. I’ll be back to it tomorrow, but it’s most likely going to be mid January, but I’ll hedge my bets and say in the worst case it could be February.


  63. Raijaay Says:

    Can i still play it on psp?
    please make it guys i will waiting it


  64. Krownyh Says:



  65. Anonymous Says:

    omfg!!! this is crazy …xD im so going to wait for the 3ds release now.


  66. Romsstar Says:

    @Krownyh : Why not?


  67. Krownyh Says:

    I meant : Why… people need to be given answers instead of searching for them? T.T
    BTW that’s great news little bastard ^~^


  68. bserafm Says:

    This is great news.

    But I have some questions. How will you guys even do ASM on this, since there’s no debugger currently?


  69. lilkev9412 Says:

    so what’s gonna happen with Digimon Adventure for the PSP?


  70. derex Says:

    They gonna abandon it most likely, there is another guy from philipine translating it, but he’s only one man army. And the delay we have is also because they do the 3ds thingy testing and such instead of finishing psp one. well its their time so they can do whatever but what a letdown.


  71. deadstalkers Says:

    I’m so using this month or so before the patch is out to make a small fortune in meat


  72. João Says:

    Release download from psp D:


  73. Greymom Says:

    I’m starting to feel these guys (the translator group) r the biggest April fool come on guys don’t suck to them too much
    How many times they give us promises and in the end they disappoint us, 3ds project don’t make my as.s laugh finish this project first then start to think about other projects. it feels like they r trying to catch the attention from us gratz u got our attention but be honest with us.
    Just saying


  74. Rai Says:

    Wait patiently like the rest of us D:


  75. Rai Says:

    Greymom: If anyone’s a troll here, it’s you. Go away and do your own translation if you think this is fake.

    And just to further prove your inability to read, they said it’d be their next project. NEXT. PROJECT. Learn to fucking read you retarded inbred cunt.

    Liked by 1 person

  76. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    We said so in the post itself, but since people clearly can’t read it, this video was a simple proof of concept. CompCom made the insertion tools, and we ported the strings that are identical from the PSP version to the 3DS version, and then did a small amount of additional translating to make Jijimon’s speech about the Twitter clone appear in English. We really didn’t spend a lot of time on this, and our first priority remains the PSP version for the time being.


  77. jeanme132 Says:

    You guys Wouldnt Happen To Need a Moderator Would You? I’d be More Than Happy To Start Banning Some Ungrateful Dumbfucks here.

    FIRST TO BE BANNED IS RAI OF COURSE ;), But seriously how ungrateful can some people be :/

    I was thinkin about buyin a 3ds…Now u give me more reason to do so.Thank u so much guys.


  79. Chrona Says:

    I love you guys


  80. leBobby Says:

    WOWOWOW!!! That’s actually what I’ve been waiting for!
    There exist a petition called: Operation Decode, which is exactly about bringing Re:Digitize Decode to the US and Europe. For those who don’t know yet, heres the link:

    It somehow already caught a bit of attention by a bandai executive.

    Maybe the translators can get some extra help from there or vice versa.
    Anyways, thx for all your efforts so far!


  81. Anonymous Says:

    And once we are at mid january i´ll be here again just to see a new post saying how its almost done and will be delayed to summer 2015 and the retarded people in here will still get excited and be grateful for it lmfao


  82. azurezeed Says:

    @Ano I can wait till winter 2015 if we need to, if you don’t like their speed DIY

    and thanks as always Romsstar team


  83. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @Anonymous: Read the last few blog posts. I could not have made myself more clear about the fact that this delay was possible. We said from the beginning that we would have to delay if something came up, and then the thing we said might happen happened.


  84. Geo Says:

    So how long are you guys going to take a period of R&R after releasing this project.

    I can imagine after so much work vacation will be in order. I hope you guys have fun.


  85. Romsstar Says:

    @Geo : I don’t know for the rest of the team but I gotta be honest: I don’t need one. For me this is fun, I LOVE doing what we do, it’s just a pity that I have to make a living with something else, otherwise things would be different.

    I would understand the haters if things would remain the same for weeks/months, but I think we show clearly that we make constant progress…


  86. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    I’ve got a couple video games in my backlog to play, for one thing, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s a translation of Re:Digitize coming out that I’d like to play. I figure I’ll take about two weeks off before moving on to Decode.


  87. Krownyh Says:

    This video was the clearest possible proof you could have given that the previous videos were not edited. Even with that Trolls show up in the comment sections. I serisouly lose hope on humanity from time to time… or day to day…


  88. vivovace Says:

    hopefully be completed before 14 February 2015, in order to become the most beautiful valentine gifts

    i really appreciate your hard work guys, thanks


  89. Rai Says:

    @Sporky: I love you for your comment. I’ll always love you.

    @Krownyh: Haters gotta hate after all.

    @Vivovace: I personally hope it’s done before 13th Feburary myself, mainly because Dragonball Xenoverse releases then, so I’d probably be playing that constantly for a while. :V


  90. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    My mom’s birthday is February 13th, so if we haven’t put it out before then, that would be a good day for it.

  92. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Nah, but this blog is Frog Fractions 2.


  93. Anon Says:

    no, i know the truth sporky, u re developing half life 3 for the illuminaty, this is a legit conspiracy theory.


  94. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @clorff and others: Sorry, I thought I answered this a few days ago. We haven’t really decided whether or not we’ll work on Adventure at some point. CompCom and I are both willing to do so, but Romsstar isn’t particularly interested in the project, and I don’t think we can make a successful translation without all three of us. Given that Decode will take us at least a year to translate, it seems foolish to worry about what we’ll work on next at this point. I’d be interested in Cyber Sleuth, but Vita games aren’t hackable yet, so unless CompCom pulls off another miracle, that’s probably out.


  95. Saldash Says:

    any advice where to get an official gateway ? most of the resellers offered from their site for my country seem iffy, to say the least.

    looks at sporky would you be so kind as to tell us where you ordered yours?

    and happy new year (early i know but family stuff tomorrow)


  96. Greymon Says:

    I was wondering wether u want money for this project or not
    It seems if we put some cash the translation may finished
    Going by this way I think it will not finish not any time soon or far.
    Just pm me if u want cash I’m getting sick of broken promises. (Promises with S cuz u broke more than one)


  97. deadstalkers Says:

    Greymon some where there is a stick in your backyard rotate on it


  98. Romsstar Says:

    @deadstalkers: Don’t bother, there’s this one dude posting under different names, just hating on the project. I don’t know what else we could possibly do to prove our project is real and almost done.


  99. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @Saldash: I ordered mine from who seemed a little dodgy, they had me pay them over PayPal as a “gift” that totally wasn’t for a flashcart since PayPal closes any accounts selling them. They sent it promptly though, so I can recommend them.

    @Greymon: We don’t accept and don’t particularly want money for our work, and have not accepted it when others have asked to donate.

    We have not broken any promises. I direct you again to all of my recent blog posts and the comments therein in which I stated in no uncertain terms that although we were going to try to release by the end of December, it was distinctly possible that that would not be possible. When we knew we would not be able to meet our goal (which, again, was not a promise) we were forthright about why we could not do so. You are no worse now than if we had simply not said anything and released when we were done, but we thought people would be excited to know how much progress we have made.

    To anyone else who would like to donate, I still don’t want and cannot accept your money. However, if you feel so inclined, pick a charity and make a donation in the name of a staff member, such as Sporky McForkinspoon, Romsstar, or CompCom, and let us know about it here. That would be really great of you.

    Progress report 11.04.2014
    April 11, 2014 by Romsstar
    Hey guys, I thought I might fill you in what’s new.

    99% is translated+inserted(oh yeah :D), the 1% is something that the game probably doesn’t even use but we gotta be sure.
    70% of the Story is edited.


    90% is translated (Remaining 10% are all at the Colosseum and basically super unimportant but we will translate them anyways)

    80% is inserted

    ~20% is edited

    I’m afraid nothing new to report here. But patience, StorMyu is the man for this job and I know he can do what needs to be done.

    Release Date: 2014
    There you go, I gave it to you, a release date :P

    IT CLEARLY SAYS RELEASE DATE 2014, it doesnt say ” maybe 2014 ” or ” probably 2014 ” IT SAYS RELEASE DATE 2014 so thats the promise which u guys broke and dont even come up with excuses. Now im not saying i wont download this whenever the patch is out and im obviously thankful for this and stuff BUT u guys are seriously extremely slow and seem like u hate doin this


  101. Another Anonymous Says:

    Anonymous@ How about you go translate the whole game yourself, then? Since you’d be faster, you’d might be able to complete translating the game quickly. Stop whining like a spoiled brat. They’re trying their best, but something a lot more important than your entertainment called “Life” also needs to be focused on.


  102. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    I really don’t think you have any comprehension of how long translating a game takes, if you’re calling us slow. This project is about two years old, and done by a skeleton crew compared to official translations. Add to that everyone involved has to also work a job, and most of us also go to school, some weeks we simply can’t spare a lot of hours to work on this. But you know something, we love doing it. Translating is fun for us, and if I could, I would forgo my job and school to do it.

    Romsstar’s release date statement there was premature, and in retrospect was regretful. However, we’re going to be very close to the intended release, and the delay was due to things happening that were beyond our control. Would you prefer that we lie and say it was due to technical problems? Or release a buggy patch, like the FF Type 0 team did, to meet the arbitrary deadline? Perhaps more to the point, in what way are you worse now than if we hadn’t created a blog at all, and said absolutely nothing until we were done? You would have had to wait just as long, probably longer, since several members of staff, myself included, came onto the team as a result of seeing the blog.

    Let me tell you something, as much as I enjoy translating games, and as much as I like most of the community here, statements like yours and Greymon’s kind of make me want to take my ball and go home. We could just not release, give the patch only to our friends, and ask them not to distribute it. We won’t, because for every troll comment we get ten more that are great, but I really wish there was a DRM that could prevent assholes from playing the game.


  103. Diogo Silva Says:

    sporky you guys can just ignore him, it’s just some lil jerk, we all want to play the game fully enjoyable in english and that guy looks like an Whiny lil child talking about promises, in the world promises are made to be broken all the time, now deal with THAT, it’s called Real World, I would’ve wait 1 year more if that means an perfect translation!

    Oh and have a nice and safe holiday to all of you. Especially people who will travell with plane, we have bad weather this month…
    Sorry for double posting :P


  106. kaiminus Says:

    You know, I was thinking you would just ban that guy or just stop replying, but you continue feeding that troll.
    So let me tell you one thing, you can’t win against one, because he will always find something to nitpick. So unless you really enjoy talking to this guy, you should just ignore him and he should stop after a bit of time.

    And I heard of some translation teams who released partial translation patches. It would have alleviated the problem, but I’m fine if you didn’t want to / couldn’t do that. It’s just, with the internet, you can never really be sure of anything~

    Anyway, let’s forget about that thing. Happy new year in advance, I never played a Digimon game before, so Re:Digitize will be my first and I really look forward to it. So keep up the good work guys.


  107. Romsstar Says:

    I did ban him already 2 times. This guy keeps cropping up under different IPs (I know it’s the same guy because the email adress it the same). That is kinda sad, hating so much you’d come back even after IP banning.

    For everything else: As I keep saying the delay won’t be huge. It was something I simply could not have foreseen at all. When that statement was made we were positive we would make it. Nobody, simply nobody could’ve seen that this would happen.


  108. Krownyh Says:

    Actually I don’t mind feeding the troll, I mean, don’t you love pets? He’s like your little puppy in “that age”.
    Try to think of him in Music Terms, because people hate, things get popular, so…
    Anyway I hope you guys have a nice New Years Eve! Best wishes!


  109. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    A partial patch isn’t really an option Kaiminus. With the way things have played out, we have a great deal of translated work that needs to be inserted into files, a process that takes some time since we have to adjust for the line breaks or you can’t actually read them when the game tries to display the text. If we went ahead and did that without making the final round of editing to the text that we have been doing as we go through, it would take about ninety percent as long, and make the final release take a good deal longer since we would have to do it again as we finished editing the files.

    But you’re right, I’m going to stop feeding the troll, and delete posts instead from here on.


  110. Laurence Says:

    Hi there,

    Been following your work for about a year now and I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work and dedication that you’ve put into this translation.

    Digimon was a big part of my childhood and I would gladly support any official Western release of any digimon games if BandaiNamco made it so..unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case nowadays.

    And while we can only repay you guys with our appreciation, I just wanted to let you guys know that you should just ignore the trolls (or troll? could just be one guy with a lot of spare time) that post negative comments. The only thing that fuels them is attention and the best way to get them out of the way like the worthless scum that will amount to nothing that they are, is to immediately delete anything they post. Like they were never there, just like their existence in real life.


  111. Anon Says:

    Just ignore the troll, u guys did this for ppls who support you not for the trolls and hater, so who cares what they gonna say


  112. azurezeed Says:

    Hey guys what do you think of the new Digimon Adventure Tri?
    do you like the art and characters design?

    I like it, it’s like the one in the movies


  113. Anonymous Says:

    Its funny to see the hater show their unsupportive comment..they come to this site everyday waiting for the paych.. If cannot wait dont came here posting the negative comment and wasting the time for the team that make the patch to reply to the comment.. Im saying just suddup n wait like other people.. In following the team from 2 year ago.. Go go team.. Dont mind the hater.. They dont do your job…


  114. Napi Says:

    Have pity on them(to those haters ) . They got raped on every post romsstar say delay.


  115. christmasknightmon Says:

    Is it just me, or does anyone else think this troll is out to spoil the project entirely? Most people have better things to do new years eve…


  116. Izanagi Haru Says:

    To those haters!! u don’t deserve to have the translated game! because u don’t appreciate the translation team at u know how hard for them to translate the game? with the dumping file,asm hack n other stuff(correct me if i’m wrong) checking if there any bug/error in the game..they are not your slave..they also have a life..why do you have to hurt their feeling??? i’m pissed off with u haters!! i have been following this project at gbatemp even before this site those haters!! if you are so impatient..go play other games..or do something in real life..or try to play other incomplete/partial translated game to know how bad it is..and you will get an answer why Romsstar and Sporky want to released a complete and bug/error free english patch of the game..btw..good luck guys..this is the first time commenting here..been supporting you in silent for a long time..


  117. Gabraham Says:

    America, the land of entitlement.

    I wonder if the haters are just trolling, period? Best to just ignore them in either case, they’re not worth listening to.


  118. Satetsu Says:

    Have you thinked about translating WonderSwan Digimon Games? Especially D-Project. So many years passed and no one done it.


  119. Rai Says:

    Personally I like reading the troll comments. They’re so full of broken English and bad grammar, that I find them amusing.

    Also Romsstar/Sporky, it’s possible that the troll has a dynamic IP, and therefore all he has to do is just restart his router. Either that or he’s using many proxies. I’m not sure what would be more sad honestly, the fact that he claims the project is slow, or the possibility that he’s using many proxies, just to fail at trolling a blog.


  120. Saldash Says:

    Thank you sporky for the link to where you got the gateway!

    Ordering mine as soon as the guys update their firmware to include the newer 3DS Firmwares.

    checking the site everyday now (can’t wait to play) hoping you guys won’t run into any more issues (both in translating the game and in real life) best wishes to everyone on the team, and all the fans. and make it a good year!


  121. Gly Says:

    I’m very excited that release is just around the corner! I Can’t wait to play!

    I’ve had this page bookmarked since 7/2/2013. I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

    Happy New Year!


  122. aznnguyen123 Says:

    Hey guys, since I haven’t been here to see the translation progress for awhile. I want to say Happy New Year to the teams and supporters for digimon re digitize. Can’t wait for Digimon adventure TRI to be release on May, 2015. Artwork picture that I found from Deviantart. Cheers!


  123. Jukan Says:

    @aznnguyen123 December 25th is a while back? Your sense of time must be WAAAY different from ours, because our update on the main page dates back about a week! They’re almost done, and even said it might be released anywhere from early January, to February worst case scenario, maybe longer of course, but I don’t foresee it by much if thats the case.



  124. AdolvsLink Says:

    Happy new year guys (late but hey I had Internet problems) keep up the hard work and thank you for the site for a flashcard been looking for one for like several eternities. And btw dynamic ip trolling? Jeez someone’s bored.


  125. Rai Says:

    @Jukan: He/she said that ‘they’ haven’t been here for a while. Not that the translation hasn’t updated for a while.

    You should probably read posts more carefully.


  126. Jukan Says:

    Now that ya mention it, your right. i’m sorry.


  127. Oscar.velasco.137 Says:

    Dudes!!! What about making a walkthrough???
    We could write one in gamefaqs.


  128. DemonKingKenji Says:

    tri comes out in may huh well aint that just prime what a splendid birthday present for me to get. also a walkthrough could be handy but you should try playing the game by your self first.


  129. Anonymous Says:

    Just found out about you guys. It’s awesome that you are working on this project. I’m super excited to see how it all turns out!:)


  130. Anonymous Says:

    Wth.. When I read we got a christmas present for you I thought it was the patch, not some announcement. So disappointed. -_-


  131. aznnguyen123 Says:

    @Jukan It’s cool. It’s just that I haven’t visit this site for a year and a half. I barely post comments about 4 already, now this is my 5th post. :P It’s funny when I read back all these flamming, trolls, and ignorant post just for my boredom. Romsstar and the team, hope you guys finish your progress and take it easy. Supporters, take it easy you guys.


  132. anonymous Says:

    so, when exactly this patch will be release ?


  133. Rai Says:

    It’ll be released when it’s released, shut up and wait like the rest of us.


  134. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    When it’s done.


  135. Satetsu Says:

    Any chance for Digimon D-Project translation?


  136. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    The thought is appreciated Laurence, but I’ve removed both the initial post and your replies (don’t feel like you shouldn’t post more, I just wanted to remove that conversation). I’m generally willing to engage with anyone, and have many times in the past, but we’re hitting a critical mass of trolling, so I’m going to be a little more strict for the time being. I don’t like doing that, I’m generally not a fan of censorship even on my own site, but until now we have had a great community here, and I’d like to see everything stay civil.

    Criticism is fine, and we have made changes to the way we run the blog based on commenter requests, such as making more frequent updates, but there’s a limit.


  137. Krownyh Says:

    How about it? Edit the Troll’s NIckname in such a way that if we get enough, there’ll be a special message for the supporters xD


  138. DigiFan2012 Says:

    Laughing my ass off at these impatient pricks who cant wait for a damn patch as if their life is depending on it, im hoping this will get delayed many more times (and it certainly will) because every single delay is like a Slap to the Haters faces :D


  139. Geo Says:

    So after working on this translation for so long, what has been your favorite part about it, guys?


  140. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    In terms of the plot, the ending is great, definitely not what I was expecting. In terms of what I liked working on, really, the things I remember most fondly are the times when I had an evening off, I’d turn on an audio book or a television show in one corner of the screen, fix myself a drink, and then solve the fascinating puzzle of having a story in Japanese or a rough English translation, and figuring out the best way to present it in English. That, and the friends I’ve made, we work pretty closely together, and I don’t think we could work together like that for an extended period without coming to know and like each other quite well. A few of us are going to meet up this summer, and I’m really looking forward to it.


  141. Rai Says:

    That’s so awesome.


  142. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    It is, we’re meeting up in Paris, so I think we’re going to go to Disneyland, among other things.

    I had something I might want to talk to you about in private Rai, can I use the email address you listed in your posts?


  143. jenovaichigo Says:

    Prepping for the release by downloading xdelta now @.@ Can’t wait!


  144. Satetsu Says:

    @Sporky McForkinspoon
    Any chance fo Digimon D-Project translation in the future?


  145. Hrithik Says:

    Guys I just started following u and I think u r doing a great job. I hope that u don’t face any more probs in translation and who knows u might get recruited by Namco to translate digimon story cyber sleuth


  146. Rai Says:

    @Sporky: Sure. That’s fine.


  147. Drake Says:

    Hi! I am following your project for about a year, and now I want to quit my silent support just to thank you for your efforts! :D You are heroes! :D


  148. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @Satetsu: I’ll be honest, I had to look up D-Project on Wikipedia just now. I’ll look in to it at some point, but for now we know what we’ll be doing after we finish Re: Digitize, and it’s way too early to think about a project after that.


  149. Rai Says:

    You gonna email me, Sporky?


  150. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    @Rai: Yes, but I need to talk to Romsstar first. I should get to you by tomorrow.


  151. Rai Says:

    Ah okay. Fair enough.


  152. Demi Says:

    No one notice that sora and kari have the same face?


  153. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    For second I thought you were talking about Kingdom Hearts. I haven’t looked closely at the official art, the one in this thread is fan art, so that could be it.


  154. yoshichao Says:

    Actually… That’s the official poster art that was revealed to us, with a left part included to put the title in.

    That’s actually the character designs that were shown to us.

    I personally think it looks awful, so I guess I’ll rely on the story to make up for it, but the director for the show doesn’t seem too reliable IMHO…

    Kinda worried for this new series.


  155. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    I guess that’s about the standard for Digimon television shows any more. Savers was pretty bad, Xros Wars wasn’t great, but had its moments, and I haven’t even ever finished Xros Wars 2.


  156. Anonymous Says:

    I like Savers and Xross Wars :(


  157. Anton Says:

    Glad to hear digimon world RD is so close to being complete
    keep up the good work.
    Merry Christmas and happy new year

    Ps just adding this bit for amusement because i know it comes to mind for anyone who watched Harry Potter ;)


  158. z Says:

    Realistically speaking, should we expecting the Decode to be done longer than the PSP version one? Since the 3DS hacking scene isn’t all that advanced yet.


  159. JP Says:

    I knew you would do this all along. It’s such a shame I already sold my 3ds and gateway card… Anyway, can’t wait for psp release! thank your so much for all the hard work!


  160. yoshichao Says:

    I personally like all the Digimon anime series excluding Adventure 02 and Xros 02.
    Aside from them, Frontier and Adventure would probably be my lowest; Xros, Savers and Tamers have to be the best Digimon shows they’ve made so far.


  161. GaiaKnight Says:

    @z i think the Decode will be released faster than the psp version, I read somewhere that 3DS translating is easier, i could be wrong tho!


  162. Rai Says:

    It won’t be translated faster. Decode has possibly over twice the content Redigitize has.


  163. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    The up side is that our tools are all already made, and we won’t have to stop for months while we figure out the insertion process. We have also been able to port the matching strings from the PSP version to Decode, but that’s only about 20% of the total. On the technical side, the PSP is somewhat easier, since emulators and debuggers already exist, which makes ASM hacking far easier. Translating the text itself is no easier and no harder, but there’s a lot more of it in Decode.

    All together, I would guess it will take a least a year to do Decode, and there’s a definite possibility it will take longer.


  164. Anonymous Says:

    hi sporky
    just wandering if you could give us some updates regarding the psp version ^_^ would be glad if you do that..thank you very much for your team


  165. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    I’m literally working on it right now, and we’ll probably be done either later this month or early next month.


  166. Revant Says:

    My body is ready.
    End of month or early February, we can wait
    Go go sporky!


  167. Anonymous Says:

    Cant wait :)


  168. ZeedPowah Says:

    Fk Decode, we want the psp version


  169. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Good, because the PSP version is coming first. That Decode video took about an hour to put together.


  170. Rai Says:

    @ZeedPowah Learn to read, please. They’re not working on Decode right this second. It’s their project AFTER the PSP version.

    Also who is this “We” you speak about? Don’t speak for all of us, not all people are impatient.


  171. Van Says:

    Hey guys! I just found out about this project today and tbh I learned so much going through these comments! You guys are fantastic and I’ll wait as long as you want to take <3 I'll be following your progress from now on too so let's enjoy the ride together, cheers~


  172. Jessu Says:

    I’m so extremely excited for this to be finished.
    I honestly can’t express my gratitude to you guys.
    I’ve been waiting since 2012, and now that it’s almost done, I feel like a part of my life is being finished, lol.
    Basically, thanks for everything you guys have done, and good luck with all you have left!


  173. Struwwl Says:

    Hey guys :3
    Can’t wait to finally play it! Thank you guys so much for this!
    You have been featured on siliconera!


  174. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Neat, I had no idea. First a Wikipedia article, and now this.


  175. lemfn64 Says:

    nice guys thanks for every effort you have put on this game, its awsome its almost done, cheers to every one of you!!!


  176. shogunreaper Says:

    You guys should do the SAO psp game next instead.


  177. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Eh, I started a project for that game, but with Hollow Fragment out, it doesn’t seem like a good use of my time. Hollow Fragment’s translation was admittedly not very good, but it’s certainly playable and understandable, I’ve put about 100 hours into it. Plus, Romsstar and most of the others here don’t care about SAO at all, only Kalker and I are particularly in to the series.


  178. Kilst Says:

    Please have my babies!


  179. Zephuros Says:

    suuuuuuuuuPERRRRRRRR happy to hear this!
    now problem is uh…………. how would you apply the eng patch o_O..? (buy flashcards – the pirated stuff?)
    I wonder if it’ll affect….
    recently those that use flashcards to play MH4G/MH4U got banned permanently and can’t online to play other games..
    oh darn……….. but I wanna play this too TT.TT!!!


  180. Trin Thaweesuthi Says:

    How is it going? I sure hope its surely done if not i can wait for a bit longer. Great job Sporky, that video got my hopes up. I got both a 3ds and a psp so ill be excited on both psp cause of region lock. i have no idea how to patch japanese games on psp so i hope the instructions will be there


  181. Stephanie Valles Says:

    Any news on this?


  182. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Uh… The patch? It’s been out for months now, Stephanie.


  183. Mikashemica Says:

    She asking about 3ds project?


  184. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Oh, well, we’ve posted news about that too. We’re working on it, but since we don’t have a video out card for our 3DSs, videos don’t get much higher quality than that one.


  185. Elton Says:

    I want the link to download digimon world redigitize decode English patch pls


  186. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Check the more recent “It’s Here” post.


  187. Rai Says:

    @Elton: Good luck with that. Unless you want to do the translation yourself, you’re going to have to wait like the rest of us.


  188. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    Oh, Decode. I misunderstood. Yeah, that’s gonna be a while.


  189. Albis Reyes Says:

    fallen link plis put another link


  190. Lucas Niada Nunes Says:

    Update this link please!


  191. Sporky McForkinspoon Says:

    I will when I have a chance. I have to find it on one of several old hard drives. But it’s still on Youtube, that link was just a slightly higher res version.


  192. skarton94 Says:

    Reblogged this on bokunotorauma and commented:
