Rockman DASH 2: Episode 1 English Fan-Translation Patch Drops April 24th

The Japan-exclusive Rockman DASH 2: Episode 1, a special demo/prologue for DASH 2 known for its unique missions and scenarios, is finally receiving an English translation. This news comes from Hilltop Works, a translation group recognized for bringing overlooked Japanese titles to English-speaking audiences.

The Episode 1 translation patch goes a step further by granting direct access to the debug room (previously accessible only through cheat codes and modifications) and includes the unused town that prominently appeared on the back of the game's case, all now translated into English for the first time.

The patch will be released on Wednesday, April 24th. Stay tuned for more updates!

UPDATE: The patch is live! Grab it here (no paywall).

  1. So impressed with the Legends community, or any community really that goes out of its way to do stuff like this. As a massive Legends fan I can't wait to try this demo!

    It's also crazy to think that this was an actual demo for a game, yet has its own fun little campaign. I feel like getting anything like this nowadays would be impossible.

  2. The Legends community is so GOATed for stuff like this, never getting their Legacy Collection or cancelled sequel. The horrors persist, but so do we. In a parallel universe Legends 3 came out and was the best of the series. Sad this is the timeline we live in.

    1. It's not like the Legacy Collection was canceled or anything. They come out once every 2-3 years, so depending on whether Starforce or Legends is next the Legends collection should drop in 1-5 years considering Battle Network dropped last year.

  3. Mega Man x Roll is better than Mega Man x Tron Bonne.

  4. Nice use of the "Mega Man drops on" meme here, if that was intentional.

    Otherwise, it's nice to see this finally get translated. It's more or less arranged snippets from the full game, as I understand it, but still. Cool stuff.

  5. That is awesome, I’ve always wanted to try the prologue demo but never did because of the language barrier. Is it possible to burn the patched version to disc and run it on a actual ps1 system?
