    Hey guys and gals! I am currently working on an English translation of Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector for Nintendo 3DS.

    In Neko Atsume, gameplay revolves around the player purchasing food, toys, and furniture to attract a variety of cats to the player's home. The player can watch cats interact with objects, take photos of them which can be saved in an album, and receive gifts of fish and mementos from them.

    Current progress:

    Menu graphics: 100%
    Everything else: 0%

    Screenshots:

    I'm not showing you any screenshots of the top screen in-game because it mostly looks like this:

    [​IMG] (dat butt)

    Also, for those that are new to the game, the tutorial makes you quit the game for a few seconds in order for a cat to appear (they're shy, they won't come when you're looking). So, when you come across this screen during the tutorial, don't assume your game froze, it's just telling you to go back to the menu and come back (press the HOME button and "Resume" right away):

    [​IMG]

    So as you can see I've translated all of the menu graphics, but game text, cat names, item names, descriptions etc. are still in Japanese. That is because the menu textures use the simple .CTPK format which can be easily unpacked and repacked, while the text is stored in an .EVT file, which hasn't been documented yet.
    Thankfully, the developer of Kuriimu (appropriate name), IcySon55 is working on a Kuriimu plugin that should allow us to easily edit the text.
    Oh, and by the way, the .EVT file already contains the whole English localization, which goes completely unused in the game for some reason. That means that "translating" the .evt file shouldn't take too long once the editing becomes possible.

    There's also a mobile version in English if you're interested, that's actually where like 70% of the textures I used in this patch comes from.

    I'm more impressed at how you managed to fit a 307MB CIA file into a 27MB RAR archive o_O

    That amazed me too! I'm guessing that's because there are like 4000 .ctpk files in the CIA, and those compress quite well haha

    It's fine, the text editing should be fairly simple once the Kuriimu plugin is ready ;)
