Developer Credits

A small credit for a programmer was hidden in the Japanese version at 0x4BE:

Written by Keios

Also present in the ROM is this string:

Game Studi Inc.

Which is repeated as filler.

Regional Differences

To do:
There's probably more graphic changes.

Like the localization of the NES port of Wizardry 1, Wizardry V was subject to the typical Nintendo censorship laws, which might come off as even more blatant considering the Japanese game has a full English option.

  • Most item and class names of a religious nature are, predictably, renamed.
  • The nude angels on the title screen are clothed up.
  • The Ruby Wizard on Dungeon Level 2, a very blatant drunk, changed from asking for alcohol to asking for "gifts".
  • Female enemies with skimpy clothes are clothed up.
