Super Castlevania IV Uncensored

Hack of Super Castlevania IV

Description:

Thanks to RedGuy’s work on his Super Castlevania IV Editor, SC4 now has most of its assets in an uncompressed format, making it possible to do all sort of hacking feats on both SCIV and Akumajou Dracula.

This hack focuses on restoring most of the censored content from the USA release of Super Castlevania IV:

  • All of the crosses in both backgrounds, coffins, gravestones, etc have been restored.
  • The green goop has been ditched in favor of the blood in level 8-1-1 and 8-1-2.
  • The Stained Glass from the Continue screen has been restored to its Japanese counterpart sprites.
  • The Font has been modified to match that of the Japanese release as well.
  • The Stage Select screen has been completely reworked and translated.

Things to do:

  • Implement Blood Drop from the Japanese Title Screen

Note: A similar patch by DarkSamus993 will be released as an upcoming update for the Japanese version of the game. The “Things to do” will most likely be added to the Japanese ROM hack instead of the US ROM. Also, he might update the English patch to add the Blood drop to the English version of the ROM.

Keep an eye for the update!

User Review Information

Ok, but extra effort to patch = -1 point

Reviewed By: MathUser2929 on 10 Jul 2016

This hack is exactly what it says it is. The minuscule edits done to US/EU versions of Castlevania are restored to their Japanese counterparts. For some reason The font was “uncensored”.

Be warned that to use this patch you have to download SCV IV ed from the forums and expand your ROM first. Then you can apply the patch and have it take effect.
