Mega Man X2 Relocalization

Hack of Mega Man X2

Description:

This hack of Mega Man X2 relocalizes the original Japanese text, restoring lost elements and meanings, removing nonsense like calling X Mega Man and fixing typos. In addition, this hack fixes certain sprites of X that have to do with the Capsule upgrades you find throughout the game.

An optional patch has been included that changes the title screen to the style used in the Japanese version of X2.

Note that this hack isn’t a retranslation, but a relocalization. Some of the US text’s elements are still included, and the translation isn’t always literal.

Version 1.1 contains a fatal bug at the end of final stage 2. Please update to the newest version.

Great improvement

Reviewed By: julayla on 19 Nov 2019

I can say the re-localization is much better for the game itself. It is amazing. Thank you guys for this relocalization and hope the 3rd X game gets the same treatment like this and the Rockman X version had for the relocalizing (though on the first, I still miss the US names, but it’s a small price to pay).

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
