CRW: Metal Jacket - PC-98 tactics game featuring mechs gets a full English translation

As a retro based site with the odd bit of Indie we do love to feature Rom hacks and English translations, but CRW: Metal Jacket, which got its own English translation today, stood out by a mile. This game which was released way back in 1994 for the PC-98, is a rather interesting looking tactics game featuring mecha pilots battling against criminals and insurgents in a futuristic Japan after World War III. As the main site says "It plays a bit like X-COM or Front Mission, and came out in late 1994, between the original release of those two series."

Released by 46 OkuMen, this translation is applied with a custom executable patcher, “Pachy98.exe,” which should work on any version of the game. Furthermore this release translates all of the game’s text, including images. However if you don't want to play this release, you can check out the Playstation version remade for the PlayStation, two years later as CRW: Counter Rebellion War, with controls adapted to the game pad and four additional missions.
