TL;DR: Don't sell reproduction carts of this game translation; if you're going to retranslate the game, be sure to credit the team that created the original patch; and don't distribute patched versions of the game in any way, shape, or form - including prepatched roms AND reproduction carts.

Buy a flash cart instead of wasting your money on an expensive reproduction card that uses EEPROM chips which lose their data after a few years. Or, use a console-based or PC emulator. I'm totally fine with that. Please don't give your money to people who profit from stuff game translators do for free.

The game is, as TheFreak put it, "Castlevania III with 25% MORE BETTER!". It's the original version of Castlevania III, with enhanced music, graphics, and other things that were censored when the game was ported to the US of A. There are other things that were changed around, like Grant [who plays in a very different manner in this version], and the difficulty is way lower, so it makes for a very nice time.

Version 1.00 of the patch contains a nice title screen hack done by BMF54123.
