Regional Differences: Add more, specifically about gameplay.
Due to Hokuto no Ken being relatively unknown outside of Japan during this era, Sega decided for the West to alter the main character of their game as a generic martial artist with superpowers.
At the title screen, press Up, Down, Left, Right, Up+Left, Up+Right, Down+Right, Down+Left, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Up, Up+Right, Up+Right on controller 2. The level select will appear to the right of the title. Note that the code is quite difficult to enter, since the diagonals must be pressed very precisely, and there's only a small window of time to enter the code.
Alternately, use Pro Action Replay (PAR) code 00DB6B12.
List of values and their corresponding levels:
|1||Chapter 1 Boss|
|3||Chapter 2 Boss|
|5||Chapter 3 Boss|
|7||Chapter 4 Boss|
|9||Chapter 5 Boss|
Both title screens are animated, but the title screen for Hokuto no Ken has lightning flashing in the background, while the title screen for Black Belt just color-cycles the logo.
Additionally, both games also have different music for some scenes as well. Namely, the BGM used for the title screen, main BGM, and boss battle BGM.
