Super Fantasy Zone is a 1992 colorful free-moving shooting game for the Sega Genesis / Sega Mega Drive. Help Opa-Opa to avenge the death of his father O-papa, defeat Menon’s evil minions and save the Fantasy Zone once again.
With this English translation patch you can play the game “Super Fantasy Zone” for Sega Genesis / Sega Mega Drive in English (only text and menus are in English).
There are two patches: “superfzone-J-EN-v1.0.bps”, which is for use with the original Japanese ROM file of the game; and “superfzone-U-GenMini-EN-v1.0.bps”, which is for use with the “American” (USA) Genesis Mini / Mega Drive Mini ROM dump of the Japanese game. These ROMs must be in “.bin” format. It also works in ROMs that are in “.md” format.
The game has not been translated, the Japanese version of the game has the English language hidden, it is curious that they did not activate it in the Mega Drive version, but by modifying the “region” of the ROM file from ‘Japan’ to ‘USA’ internally in a hex editor it was possible to have the game in English following a “region change” tutorial from a random user in Reddit “r/MegaDrive”.
Now, this translation is now in patch form to make it easier for you.
The European version was launched in English, but it runs slow on PAL 50Hz, so this patch is made to have the English version of the game at full speed on NTSC 60Hz.
Enjoy this patch!! :) - saulfabreg
