Castlevania - Localization Fix

Hack of Castlevania

Description:

This patch simply alters the graphics in the end credit sequence to read ‘Simon Belmont’, his official English name, instead of ‘Simon Belmondo’, his official Japanese name.

The download includes patches for all four regional releases of the game on the NES:

  • Japanese NTSC ‘Akumajou Dracula’ (CRC32: 93F0488C)
  • Original American NTSC or PRG0 (CRC32: 39C879BB)
  • Revised American NTSC or PRG1 (CRC32: 856114C8
  • European PAL (CRC32: 9A3CF4D6)

Also included is a special variant of the patch that also updates several of the enemy names in the end credits to their current and slightly more accurate English translations:

  • Frankenstein - Franken (since at least CV3)
  • Hunch Back - Flea Man
  • Armor - Armor Knight

… if that sort of thing really interests you, of course.
