Fans translate Monster Hunter 2G into English

By Spencer . June 24, 2008 . 4:18pm


Monster Hunter Portable 2G is a commercial success in Asia. However, Capcom hasn't given any sign if we’re going to see them bring it to North America. The game just came out in March so we could hear an announcement at E3, but in case it never comes there is another way to enjoy Monster Hunter Portable 2G without a kanji dictionary. Within a period of less than three months a passionate group of multilingual Monster Hunters almost finished translating the PSP game. There is even a save file converter so you can continue playing a legally imported copy of Monster Hunter Portable 2G in English.


Thanks go to PapimeruPSP and TeamHGG for the impressive.

    Please note that Custom PSP Firmware IS required, as well as an .iso of the game that you ripped yourself from the disc you own.

    there may be an issue with American and Japanese save files. :/

  • Well I transfer the save data from the Moster Hunter 2 Portable(JPN)
    when It came out before the Patch and before the Moster Hunter 2 Freedom (ENG). Now I have my Hunter from MHP2 in MHP2G with Patch in English which rocks!

    I did this transfer before knowing that this ENG patch was out, so Do the patch after u transfer the Save Data from MHP2 and not from MHF2.


    Now will be easier to play Solo, Ad-hoc, downloaded content and Online via Xlinkai !
