Arcus Spirits is the Super Famicom port of Arcus Odyssey for the Sega Genesis and Sharp X68000. A North American release was planned, but canceled after Wolf Team's American publisher was bought out by Sega. However, a nearly-complete prototype of the American version of the game has been dumped.

Hmmm...
To do:
Document the US prototype.

Stage Select

Arcus Spirits contains code for a stage select menu, but it is unreachable in both the JP and US versions of the game. To access it, start the game with the following Pro Action Replay codes enabled:

JP version US prototype

80811400
8081159E
80814320
80814444
8081459D

The menu will appear after selecting a character.

Developer Message

This text appears at the very beginning of the Japanese ROM:

   ARCUS SPLITS by WOLF TEAM    
   PROGRAMED by S.Horishita     

The message was moved to offset 0x42 in the US prototype and padded with two extra blank lines.
