Small update:

September 29, 2016

Hello Tamers!

First of all: We’re still alive.

Second of all: Visit our Facebook page, a lot is going on there.

Big updates will still be posted here, but if you want to see things happening just as they occur, follow us on Facebook! :)

Like if you haven’t yet! :) And last but not least:

Recruiting: We are currently looking for a skilled programmer who can write an image editing program for the game with the option of inserting BIGGER images and editing of UV Mapping of Fonts/Textures.
While not essential to the fantranslation this is a project I came up with and if someone’s inserted feel free to contact me at

Fun facts time

September 23, 2016

Here are some facts about Digimon World Decode, in comparison to our previous translation of Re:Digitize:

– Re:Digitize on the PSP had 161 Items in total while Decode bumped this number up to astounding 424!

– While the number of obtainable Digimon in Decode is 161, the total roster of Digimon Decode consists of 217 Digimon, the exact size of Next Orders roster (And Decode doesn’t have 50 recolors!). So once again: Decodes Roster from 2013 on a 3DS can compete with a PS VITA game that came out as recently as this year!

– Unlike Re:Digitize, there are various camera angles you can choose during the battle.

– You’ll become a landlord in Decode and you can collect rent from Digimon while expanding your Mansion.

– While Re:Digitize could be comfortably cleared within 10-12 hours, Decodes Main Story takes at least 20-25 hours!
(In comparison Next Order’s story takes 8 hours tops)

– You can visit unique areas in Decode, like the Dark Area! Remember the place Etemon got sent to in Digimon Adventure? Yeah, that place!

– The Mt. Infinity is BACK! A 100 floor long challenge dungeon, with various rewards and a tough and awesome boss at the end!

– The accessory, cards and collectable fish number gut also bumped up.

– The Medals are back! Right, the iconic DW1 Medals are having their return in Decode and now there’s Bronze, Silver, Gold and even Platinum Medals!

– For the first time within a world game, the game keeps a Journal of every Evolution your Digimon went through, including Weight, Stats and everything else! You know EXACTLY how you got this Digimon.

– Unlike the previous installment, Decode let’s you play not only as the protagonist, but you get the chance to play as ALL Characters during the game. That’s right, Niko, Akiho, Mirei, Yuuya, you get to control them all! (Please keep in mind not for the whole game).

– Rina-chan joins as another protagonist. Players from Cyber Sleuth know her well. You’ll be able to play with her instead of Taiga.

– There are TONS of new areas, TONS of new side quests to explore: Including Merit Points, helping Shellmon, who is in a pickle again, drilling the Drill Tunnel with Drimogemon, mixing various potions with Wizardmon and going for a drink with Master Tyrannomon at the Master Bar!

Decode has not online Local Multiplayer but actually ONLINE? ;) Play against your friends all over the world!

Everyone who thinks Decode is just a port! You couldn’t be more wrong ;)

Update: Petition

September 16, 2016

Dear Fans,

As an update to my previous post I include the link to my petition to have Bandai Namco include all missing Cyber Sleuth Digimon here.

Also please take a look at this picture to realize how grave the situation is:


A favor to ask

September 16, 2016

Hello everyone,

Romsstar here. As you all heard Digimon World Next Order is going to be localized for the PS4.
Now the game had lots of performance issues which will be fixed apparently, but what is not seeming to be fixed is the abysmal roster the game had.

45 of the Digimon from Digimon World, which this game claims to be a sequel from, are MISSING


A lot of these Digimon were included in Cyber Sleuth though. Digimon World Next Order is recycling the models from Cyber Sleuth. This means there is NO reason at all, why they shouldn’t include ALL Cyber Sleuth Digimon into the PS4 Version.

Fans everywhere, let’s go and ask Bandai Namco to do that. PLEASE.

We were promised 12 new Digimon which turned out to be:

– Shinegreymon Burst Mode
– MirageGaogamon Burst Mode
– Rosemon Burst Mode
– Ravemon Burst Mode
– Valkyrimon
– Darkdramon
– Chaosmon
– Cherubimon Evil
– Beelzemon Blast Mode
– MarineAngemon
– Justimon
– Boltmon


This is nearly not enough! Those were all already included in Cyber Sleuth, which means they have the means to include the Digimon from Cyber Sleuth even now. But 12 is not enough. Over 30 Digimon from Cyber Sleuth are still missing.
Fans everywhere, let’s gather together and ask Bandai Namco to do it right this time. If we won’t get a Vita Version let’s at least have that.
Thank you everyone.

[Digimon World Decode] Progress report: 11.08.2016

August 11, 2016

Hello guys.

It’s been a long month for me and lots of various stuff happened, but the milestone that was most important to me was reached:

Decode Main Story Translation: 100%

Please keep in mind, this means only the main story and doesn’t include sub quests, various recruitment quests or menus.

We are not quite there yet ;)

In the mean time I was working on something else, namely a Save Editor for Digimon World Decode.

Here are some screenshots. Enjoy:)


At the moment more like a concept than anything. You click on an icon and it will jump to that menu.

In this case, clicking on Digimon will get you to menu Nr 2:


Inspired by the looks of the original Menu in Decode, this is a redesign and recreation of that very same menu.
The Sliders are for your convenience but you can also just click on the number and type it in manually :)

For reference click on this picture.

PS: I updated the previous post because I realized that maybe some people would like to see the pictures in their original resolution. You can now click on them. Sorry I forgot to add that the first time.

[Proof of Concept] Digimon World Next Order Translation

August 6, 2016


Hello guys,

since Major_toms recent post, fantranslations became possible.
As such I’m posting a proof of concept of a theoretical Digimon World Next Order Translation+Modding :)

I showcase 2 hacks:
1) Text insertion
2) Model replacement (The DW1 protagonist is usually not playable)

Caution: This is merely a proof of concept and NOT an announcement of a planned fantranslation. At this point there are currently no plans to translate Next Order, as there is no telling if it might get localized officially. Also we have enough projects on our plate as it is.
(If it won’t, it’s still nice to know that we can…)

POC: Digimon World Next Order Fan Translation


I’m aware of the typo but since insertion is currently a
bit messy I was too lazy to fix it.



Model ripping is also possible




Unfortunately I have no capture card, so video capturing is not possible for me.



Progress Update 12.07.2016

July 12, 2016

Hi guys.

Yes, we are still alive :D I  hope you guys out there are fine as well.
Real life commitments, a lack of motivation and a general feeling of being overworked, stalled the progress lately.
But we’re still around and kicking. Currently we focus our efforts on Decode as the Citra 3DS Emulator has made some substantial progress, enabling us to do things that were impossible so far.

You can check out the details on GBATemp (link is pinned to the right).

I currently estimate the progress of Decode’s Story translation by roughly 25%.

I’ll provide a more substantial update when I get to it.

See ya guys,

Operation Decoded

[Lost Evolution] Progress Report: 12.05.2016

May 12, 2016

Hello everyone,

it’s really been a while since our last update.

Various circumstances and real life issues have hindered me on giving an earlier progress report.

Since Citra has made TREMENDOUS progress lately (Well for us at least) Decode right now has really become a priority, but never fear, as promised, we are still doing Lost Evolution :)

So instead of giving a Decode progress report for now, I’m giving you a Lost Evolution update, as people have been asking us a lot for that in the comment section.

So without further ado, I’ll just leave some Lost Evolution Screenshots here. Enjoy :



Please keep in mind, that everything right now is WIP and subject to change, so nothing’s really final yet.

As with Redigitize, videos will obviously follow too.

We realize, that since you followed the other group who did this before, that this probably not really that exciting to see. Yet there are subtle differences ;) We implemented a few ASM hacks, as you can see on the naming board.

More will follow where needen.  Consider this another teaser for now.

Where appropriate we will follow suit with the already localized graphics, but in some areas we thought the localized graphics didn’t do the original justice, so we will also have some of our own. Stay tuned :)

Last but not least, while we are usually not commited to ETAs, there are two we’ve given on Gbatemp, which maybe some of our blog followers haven’t seen yet:

  1. We are planning to release Lost Evolution by the end of the year
  2. Decode’s main story and subquests will be fully translated by the end of September

That’s it for now guys. See ya ~


Digimon World Redigitize Decode – Next Video :)

February 11, 2016

Hello guys, as we promised we will upload other ingame cutscenes from Decode over the next few days,

so here’s the next one :)

This cut scene occurs shortly after an Event in Digimon World Decode and unlocks a certain Dungeon Digimon World 1 fans should be familiar with.

Enjoy ;)
PS: I know these cutscenes are rather short, but please understand as the original resolution on the 3DS is rather very small, we have to re-encode each video so that it will be watchable on a big screen, which is why we can’t upload them all at once. Plus, isn’t it kinda exciting to wait for the next one? ;)
