I was wondering if it's possible to patch FFII: Deep Crimson Butterfly into english the same way I did for FF4? I bought a Nintendo Wii and modded it with homebrew and wiivolution so I could play Fatal Frame IV, which was a success. Fatal Frame II: Deep Crimson Butterfly wasn't released in Canada or the US, so the only options I see for a physical copy is a Japanese import or a European import. I'd be willing to get it for my collection, but I want to know if it would even be possible to play it on my console. I haven't ever heard of a patch for FFII: DCB since I imagine a lot of people play the EU version with the english already on it, but even after I midded my wii to play the japanese import of FFIV, does that remove the region lock so technically the EU copy might work on my console? I'm not too hung up on the dub itself and prefer the japanese voices most of the time, but if it can be helped or anything, I guess I might have two options.


Would I be able to buy the japanese import and patch the menus and subtitles into english?

Or could I buy the EU version and play it on my console?


I wanted to ask before I try to buy a copy, and appreciate anyone reading this and replying. Thanks a ton, and I'm super excited for FFV! 8D

There is no English patch for this game. Riivolution lets you play any game from any region. I would suggest to import the PAL version because its a lot cheaper than the Japanese version. If you want to play it for the Japanese voices might as well import the PAL version because there is an undub patch available meaning you can play the game with Japanese voices with English subs if that is your issue and you'll be saving a lot of money by doing so.
