7th Dragon 2020 is the sequel to the original Nintendo DS 7th Dragon, moving the action to near-future Tokyo and trading in the strong Etrian Odyssey influence of the original for a more streamlined, modern vibe. However, there is still plenty here for players who love picking their own classes, building their own party, and getting stomped on by monsters. The high-profile creative trio behind the original 7th Dragon - director Kazuya Niinou (Etrian Odyssey, Trauma Center), producer Rieko Kodama (Phantasy Star, Skies of Arcadia), and composer Yuzo Kushiro (Streets of Rage, Etrian Odyssey) - all return, with a cameo and alternate soundtrack by, yes, Hatsune Miku.

The translation is not perfect, but just as with the translation of the original NDS, it should be edited enough to be fluid and enjoyable. The complete game has been translated, excepting only some inessential graphics.

There is a snag with name entry on actual hardware (the game requires full-width English characters in Unicode) that will hopefully be corrected soon, but there are no known major issues in emulation so far.

The hardware incompatibility has been fixed, so I'll be updating the description to reflect that. A hotfix is available at the site.

Huh, I'd have thought setting the PSP system language to Japanese would fix it. :P
(no, I haven't tried it. sorry.)

Still behavior differences are to expected. AFAIK emulators don't actually use any part of PSP's official firmware/bios.

Hi. When I saw this yesterday I was surprised to discover upon checking your homepage which I hadn't seen before that the patch had just came totally out of the blue! Also equally surprising that I'd never known about this game and its sequel on the PSP. Sega is releasing a brand new 7th Dragon Saga title on the 3DS localized into English soon.
The visuals for the 7th Dragon 2020 series are very beautiful. Sega even had some other PSP games that never got outside Japan. Don't understand why. Could have digitally released them on PSVita's PSN service.

Your patch even got covered by the professional games media just now! Congratulations.

Will you be looking to conjure up a group to fan-translate the PSP sequel?

Another pleasant surprise.  :)
I played a bunch of 7th Dragon back in 2014 with the release of your previous patch and I look forward to trying out 2020! This release has also gotten be pretty hyped for 7th Dragon III on the 3DS which I would have never been interested in if it wasn't for your translations, so thank you so much for your hard work and for turning me on to this fun series.

Thanks for the kind words! Glad to hear the hotfix is working, I've officially updated the version to 0.91 and included the fix.

I will investigate the sequel at some point, but not for a while.

if it makes you happy they have confirmed they are indeed translating the third game. its SUPPOSED to hit during this summer but, its already spring and theres still no word on when, so i wouldn't be suprised if it was suddenly fall or winter.

This is somewhat belated, I know, but just in case you're still reading this and considering making an updated patch at some point (or if it's relevant in the sequel):

The Hacker has a skill called "Trash Pickup", which seems a bit oddly-named.  Could that be intended to be translated as "Garbage Collection?"  (Or perhaps it's intended to be oddly-named as a more subtle joke on that term?)
