There may be more changes, especially in the cutscenes.

Both the Japanese and Western versions of the game are presented in English, but some text was touched up between releases.

Additionally, screens were added after the credits in the Western versions telling the player to try a higher difficulty, with a special 'You are the True Dark Knight' message for completing the game on Mania. The Japanese version freezes at the end of the credits with no such screens.
