Regional Differences

The character sprites have shifted a few pixels to the left in the Korean title screen.

Janken Battle

In the Japanese version only, the animation for a character losing in a game of Janken would result in them losing their clothes. All other versions however change this to an anvil falling on their heads. Also, the final boss will be covering himself after his defeat in the Japanese version, while in other versions he just keeps waving his arms.

The Korean version replaces the "Janken-Po!" voice sample with the stage start jingle.

Sound Test

The Japanese sound test menu has a slightly odd color palette, mainly noted to the small hand icon. The palette was fixed in the international versions. The entire font was also replaced, removing the drop shadow in the process, as well as replacing the letter M with another N seemingly by accident. The Korean version has "Janken" removed for various legal reasons, however it does fix the M letter.
