「BREAK ARTS」 is proud to announce a complete localization of Monster Hunter 2!

Monster Hunter 2 is an action role-playing game for the PlayStation 2, released in 2006. It features many mechanics which never returned in later entries, including a seasonal system, and online player-versus-player combat. It is also known for its punishing difficulty and strong monster advantage, when compared with other games in the series.

In this release, 「BREAK ARTS」 have completely translated the game. All NPC dialogue, Quest descriptions, tutorial text, UI texture, item descriptions, including everything in the game's online component, has been completely translated.

The patch is fully compatible with online servers, and provides an original, unchanged Monster Hunter 2 experience.

Work on this patch took over 6 months and over 850 hours to complete, and much love was put into the hacking and localization of the game to give fans of the series the best experience possible.

Please enjoy Monster Hunter 2!

As a huge Monster Hunter fan, I'm very, very happy this exists. For those more used to newer games, it will take quite a bit of adjusting, as this is where the series really started to gain a clear character. For that reason, it has some quirks unique to itself (among them, the PS2 control scheme that ties attacks to the right analog).

In most respects, it is similar in content to Monster Hunter Freedom, broadly speaking, but still well worth the adventure.

The team behind this deserves high praise for the quality delivered here, as this could easily be mistaken for an official release.
