Instead of just being an overpowered X, Zero is like an alternate version, as there's some stuff X can do that he can't, along with the buster shots being different.

This page's content is really, really outdated. Check out the stuff there and update if possible.


VIP quality

Like the NES, the SNES also has a number of romhacks to improve and/or modify a game's aspects or make an entirely new game on the game's engine, sometimes with new graphics and music. Some of these "new games" tend to be quite the challenge, so approach with caution. Everything else should explain what you're getting into just fine.

Game Title Genre Description Link Screenshot
Final Fantasy IV Project II / Namingway Edition RPG A modification to FF2us that adds a new script and changes names to be more consistant with FF6. If you want a more authentic experience, you could use Namingway Edition which adds full spell names like Blizzard and original Hard Type maps. Project II

Final Fantasy VI / III Relocalization Project RPG A big bag of tweaks and fixes to a great classic. It squashes many annoying bugs, restores some previously censored bits, and rewrites the whole script to be more faithful to the original while keeping the charm of Woolsey's version. Link Final Fantasy VI Relocalization Project screenshot

For those who wanted to beat entire stages and bosses as Zero instead of just briefly using him like in the original.

No longer an overpowered X, there's some stuff Zero can do that X can't, along with the buster shots being different. There's also some other tweaks to things which you might enjoy or not even notice. Check the readme file first! Link Thislooksshoppedbutitaint
