Unused Graphic

This enemy is named Kondoria and it's seen in the TurboGrafx-16 Bomberman game as a battle mode obstacle, but it's not seen in this game.

Regional Differences

Title Screen

Japan North America Europe
Push it!! Bomber II Man Who?

The trademark info was updated in the North American game, and a trademark symbol was added. The European version changes the title entirely (the first NES Bomberman never came out in Europe).

Cutscenes

Japan International
Deadly weapon against Dracula Crossed out

The cross on the church was removed.

Passwords

Japan International
Not many curses you could spell here, anyway 85FFJ

As evidenced above, the password format is different between the Japanese and International revisions. The international release omits all vowels, an odd bit of censorship(?) that can be seen in other games. Though the symbols changed, the actual password values are identical. A=1, H=8, I=B, etc.

Sound Test

Japan North America Europe
Bo Mber M a n2 Bomberman2SoundRoomMusicEffecTPCM Again, who?

Spaces were removed between Bomber and Man, and Man and 2. The European game remembers to update the game title.
