Zoids Saga DS: Legend of Arcadia

Nintendo DS

Game Description:

Zoids Saga DS: Legend of Arcadia is a role playing game for the Nintendo DS.

Translation Description:

This patch for Zoids Saga DS Legend of Arcadia is a project that seeks to translate the game from Japanese into English.

What is translated:

  • All story dialogue
  • All NPC dialogue
  • All weapon, item, part and Zoid names
  • All character and place names
  • All skills, deck commands and Zi Data
  • Almost all menu text
  • Almost all Zoid Institute text
  • Almost all battle menu text
  • Mining radar text

What is not translated:

  • Lines spoken by characters when attacking (aside from battle cutscenes)
  • The Zoid Database entries
  • Multiplayer exclusive text
  • Some enemy scanner radar text

Changelog: v1.02: Fixed Raze Tiger’s name to Rayse Tiger

Known issues:

  • Leaving the game running for an extended period of time (~12 hours) can result in the game losing its ability to save until it is powered off and on again. This bug is present in the original version of the game as well.
  • Browsing the Kanji section in text entry can cause the game to crash, so please avoid the Kanji section. This is due to the areas in memory reserved for Kanji text entry being used to fit the English translations.
  • Players can rename Athle to anything they want, however the player will be referred to as ‘Athle’ for all story content. The new name will however be visible in menus and in battle.

WARNING: The following Action replay code will mess up your deck commands and make the deck command menu inaccessible:

All Armaments (Weapons)

02294DD0 63636363 D3000000 00000000 D5000000 63636363 C0000000 0000002F D6000000 02294DD4 D1000000 00000000 02294E94 00636363

Also, DO NOT SAVE WHILE CHEAT CODES ARE ENABLED as it will corrupt your save. If you are going to mess around with cheats, backup your save first

Just to clarify: It is fine to turn on, for example, max money, as long as you disable the cheat before saving your game. So:

  • 1. Enable cheat
  • 2. Do something to update your money amount (pause/go through a door etc)
  • 4. Save

You can even save with the cheat enabled AS LONG AS YOU DISABLE IT AND SAVE AGAIN. If your most recent save is done with cheats enabled, the game will freak out and delete your data when you power it back on


  • 1. Download the .rar file
  • 2. Unzip using WinRAR or a software of your choosing to obtain the patch file
  • 3. Go to and enter your (unpatched) ROM and the patch file
  • 4. Click ‘Apply patch’ and it will return the patched ROM

If users encounter any errors, especially with popup messages in battle menus, they should leave a post on the Project’s GBATemp thread here:
