Great restoration hack and compatible with the SA-1 hack!!

Reviewed By: RHZ on 22 Nov 2020

It’s great having access to the cheat codes only originally available in the japanese version of the game, as well as having unlimited continues and being able to fight the true final boss on normal mode. This hack is also compatible with the SA-1 hack that removes the slowdown from the game. To make it work, I first applied the SA-1 hack and then this restoration hack. Thank You!!
