Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere is a game infamous for the overseas version being heavily butchered in content. Luckily, a ROM hack does exist that restore the Japanese content in the overseas version.

Regional Differences

The Western versions of the game removed a ton of content when compared to the Japanese version. The original version comes in two discs; it has 52 missions, story branches, multiple endings, and more. The Western versions only have one disc with 36 missions; the story is linear with only one ending, a lot of the anime cutscenes are gone, unique characters were replaced with generic stand-ins, and more.

Unused Areas

In the Japanese version, there are two missions only accessible through a GameShark. The missions Mission Code and Game Show can be accessed with 800BF65C 0000 and 800BF65C 0013, respectively. Both missions are incomplete and cannot be finished, though.
