Walkure Romanze is a visual novel that revolves around jousting and romance. It was developed by Ricotta and released in Japan in 2022. The game has four main heroines: Celia, Mio, Lisa and Noel. The game has not been officially translated into English, but there is a fan translation project that has been ongoing since 2013.
The fan translation project is led by a group called Wakarimashita Translations, who have a blog where they post updates and patches. As of March 2023, they have released an English patch v1.01 that covers the common route, Celia's route, and Lisa's and Mio's routes partially. They are still working on Noel's route and the remaining parts of Lisa's and Mio's routes. You can download the patch from their blog or from other sources such as Mega or Mediafire[^1^].
To play the game with the English patch, you will need the following:
The original Japanese game (you can buy it online or download it from other sources)
The English patch v1.01 (or the latest version available)
A program to extract the files (such as WinRAR)
A program to mount the game image (such as Daemon Tools)
A program to change your system locale to Japanese or use a locale emulator (such as Locale Emulator)
Here are the steps to install and play the game:
Extract the files from the English patch using WinRAR or another program. You will get a folder called \"Walkure Romanze English Patch\".
Mount the game image using Daemon Tools or another program. You will get a virtual drive with the game installer.
Run the setup.exe from the virtual drive using your system locale set to Japanese or using a locale emulator. Install the game on your desired directory.
Copy the contents of the \"Walkure Romanze English Patch\" folder into your game directory, replacing any existing files.
Run the game using your system locale set to Japanese or using a locale emulator. If a serial pop-up occurs, you will need a crack (check other folders/files, usually it is inside a rar file).
