Nintendo Famicom Japanese Exclusive TV Adaptation Of Samurai Pizza Cats Fan Translation Released

Nintendo-Famicom-Japanese-Exclusive-TV-Adaptation-Of-Samurai-Pizza-Cats-Fan-Translation-ReleasedDespite being a popular TV show in the US, the 8-bit adaptation of Samurai Pizza Cats for the Nintendo Famicom never managed to claw its way out of Japan. Fan translators and followers of the 90s cartoon, however, have taken it upon themselves to provide a English translation which does Edoropolis' very own cyborg cat ninjas justice.

The 1991 release of Samurai Pizza Cats (or Kyattou Ninden Teyandē as it's better known in Japan) follows a very similar style of gameplay to that of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not only is it a hero packed side scrolling adventure, but one where each different cat holds a different trait needed to advance further in game.

Fan translation group Vice Translations have brought this title over to English audiences with quite a surprise on board for fans of the cartoon. Not only does the patch offer two versions - one which is a direct translation and one which is supposedly much closer to the US version of the cartoon - but also a Nintendo NES chiptune rendition of the US series' theme tune.

As usual, to enjoy this fan translation patch you will need to have an original ROM file of the game in which you can apply this patch to. Full instructions on how to patch this ROM can be found within the download, or you can refer to this handy ROM patching guide on YouTube.
