Currently, Super-K experiment uses Geant3 based simulation software
(SKDETSIM), and the new phase of the experiment, which is called "SK-Gd Project" will start soon.
Main purpose of the SK-Gd is the first discovery of the Diffuse Supernova Neutrino Background, which is neutrinos generated from the past Supernova explosion.
In SK-Gd, precise understanding about neutron capture of Gadolinium is crucial.
In order to apply the latest interaction model based on the new experimental results, Geant4 based Super-K simulation software "SKG4" is now on developing.
In this article, The current development status of SKG4, and some results of comparison with SKDETSIM are presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
