Like the Genesis version, but with a theme song featuring women moaning presumably in pleasure. And it was brought over to Japan by the same people who brought us Toilet Kids.

What a game.

The main menu for the Japanese version adds a Japanese translation of the title, as well as a copyright notice for said version's publishers, as the logos for Accolade, Cave Logic and PF Magic remain identical to the US version, complete with "Licensed by Nintendo" text.

This version also adds a "One Player Free Play" option, which is essentially a 1P vs. CPU mode. This mode, under the same name, would also be seen on the 3DO version, Ballz: The Director's Cut, in both the US and Japanese versions.

Some of the characters had their names changed for this version, presumably to make them more acceptable for the Japanese audience. These changed names were also kept on the Japanese version of The Director's Cut, although it oddly misspells Tsunami's/Gohriki's name as Gorhiki.
