This is a complete English translation, a few redundant graphics are kept in Japanese such as the minigame logos, these are subtitled at the bottom of the screen.

The author decided to mimic the style of the original English dub, the game has many callbacks to the manga and anime, so this is kept faithful but by using the dub equivalents.

The script was written for the original font that is built into the game, after the script was finished, a way to change the VWF was found, this led to adding an optional patch with a better-looking font.

Another optional patch exists to address some of the redundant Japanese graphics which some may prefer to remove.

Accessing the password mode is easier now, just press up 15 times.

An attempt at an English dub has been made by using voice samples from other Zatch Bell games. This works surprisingly well and provides a new way to experience the game as an optional patch. Careful planning went into fitting the English dub without relying on expanding the ROM.

Late into the project, it was discovered that a recently dumped revision of the ROM exists and fixes a minor graphic error that appears when played on real hardware (or sufficiently accurate emulators) this revision is supported, and the appropriate patch should be identical in content to the original version.
