There are actually quite a few - but they don't really seem to be documented anywhere (that I could find, anyway).

Off the top of my head, rank options are a bit different, and bosses take a lot more shots to go down in non-Japanese versions.

The Asian version is also (inexplicably) missing the level 1 mid boss.

There possibly are more differences...I was trying to note all of them at one point. But got sidetracked :oops:

There's a level 1 midboss? You mean the Saw Van?
It's on the JP version too.

Well, mid boss/miniboss is possibly stretching it. The buzzsaw vehicle, is what I mean.

I have the Asian version and it's definitely not there. It just scrolls past that section (same on the Asian ROM in Mame). Caught me off guard when I first fired up the PCB.

You're right - buzzsaw is in all other versions (apart from Asian).

The Japanese version is the only version with the 'correct/balanced' rank, though, from my testing. Seems to be a bit of a running pattern of Konami turning games into quarter munchers for western releases ;)

Ah I didnt know there was a separate Asian version.
I'm glad you got a version at least. I was so mad when a lot of the graphics and effects are not present through MAME and emulation.
The ending didn't make much sense at all through MAME. I have the JP version and yeah it's definitely MUCH easier and manageable than the other versions I played. I think it's in my top 5 played game.

Have the Asian PCB (AA A) and the van is definitely there. Compared with the Replay Burners YT vid, the first boss it takes (more or less) the same amount of hits to go down...

It’s a terrific game anyway, probably the best run n gun from the big K

The thing I hate the most is that, like in Sunset, you continue and you keep the score (without even a 1 at the end). The one who continue the most gets the better spot

My Asian version is AAB - in that version it's definitely missing (have just double-checked in Mame) :) Seemingly, that's the only version where it's not there.

The bosses honestly do seem to have longer lifebars in say EAA compared to JAA. It surprised me...but I have seen that aspect confirmed since by someone else over at Shmups. Interestingly, the rank options in the service menus (going off memory here :oops: ) are numbered slightly differently...but don't seem to alter boss lifebars.

I agree. It really is awesome (whichever version you have) :D

I remember you explaining about the ending being messed up in Mame - back around the time I was looking at getting a Japanese copy from you (I think via everyone's least favourite seller in Indonesia). I had always slightly wondered what was going on there until you explained it :lol:

Yeah, ultimately, I'm really happy just to own any version :) But it's quite a favourite of mine, too - so I guess I wouldn't be adverse to switching to a Japanese copy if one cropped up at a reasonable-ish price. Although I've ploughed quite a bit into my Asian copy by getting the hybrid swapped out for a Caius repro now :oops:

The scenes fade in and out of flashbacks during the crying scene. Also the last boss's office is missing the Blade Runner-esque vignettes on the monitors in the background.
