Phantasy Star Online 2 Vita English Patch

This will translate a very large amount of the game to English, with updates to follow once things are fixed (The vita file layout is nothing like the PC version!)

In addition, we've created a Vita application (PSO2v Tweaker) to install/update the English patch for you (and launch PSO2 vita), so you don't even need a PC to update!

Easy & Recommended Installation

  1. If you haven't already, download the latest RePatch plugin from here, transfer it to your vita and add it under *KERNEL section of your config.txt (ur0:tai/repatch.skprx or ux0:tai/repatch.skprx). Reboot your Vita after you've finished.
  2. Download and install the VPK file above.
  3. Launch the PSO2v Tweaker and follow the directions. It will launch PSO2 vita at the end.

It's recommended that you play PSO2 by opening the PSO2v Tweaker every time (to make sure you have the latest patch).


Manual Installation

(You can skip these instructions by installing the PSO2v Tweaker application above - It will install/update the patch for you!)

  1. If you haven't already, download the latest RePatch plugin from here, transfer it to your vita and add it under *KERNEL section of your config.txt (ur0:tai/repatch.skprx or ux0:tai/repatch.skprx). Reboot your Vita after you've finished.
  2. Create a new directory called "rePatch" (Capitalization matters!) in ux0. (ux0:/rePatch)
  3. Create a new directory called "PCSG00141" in ux0:/rePatch/. (ux0:/rePatch/PCSG00141)
  4. After extracting the ZIP above, just drop the data folder into the ux0:/rePatch/PCSG00141 folder.
  5. Then launch PSO2 and enjoy!

You will need to manually check this website every so often to see if a new patch is available. Older patches may break your game's functionality.

Note: Using rePatch will allow the patch to work on all versions of the game - Mai (why isn't this dead yet?), Vitamin, retail cart/download, and NoNpDRM.
