UPDATE: Patch has been relased among some bonus material, check out the download page!

Over the past few years, we have been working on modifying and translating the original Japanese version of Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere for the PlayStation. The translation patch will be available in 🇺🇸 English, 🇪🇸 Castilian Spanish and 🇮🇹 Italian.

To accomplish this, we have been working hard on the original scripts, digging deep into the game’s lore. We modified the graphics data by reverse-engineering the code to understand the formats and algorithms used in the game.

This is a patch made for fans, by fans. We plan to publish our tools and share our knowledge to put anyone in a position to be able to edit the game to create their own patches. This is a non-profit effort, we do not accept any donations and we do not endorse piracy, so please do not ask for download links.

There is still no exact release date. As of now, dialogues have been completely translated and inserted into the game, however, some other things are still not complete yet.

The final patch will only be available once it’s complete. The patch is finally available!!

For this announcement we have prepared a trailer, you can watch it here in 🇺🇸 English, but is also available in 🇪🇸 Castilian Spanish and 🇮🇹 Italian at our 🎞️ YouTube channel.

We have also recorded some gameplay in English:

Credits have been fully translated too, here’s a peek of the English version

Spanish speakers could also follow development at Tio Victor and tradusquare.es
