As seen above, the track titles were changed to generic names in the overseas releases, likely done to remove their religious references.

While both regions of the game share the Holy Water, the other weapon is different in each. The Japanese version offers a Cross, but the US version has the Axe, either because it was more useful or less broken.
The Japanese Konami GB Collection Vol.3 compilation, released in 1998, adds a Super Game Boy border, but the game does not use any custom color palette.
The European Konami GB Collection Vol.4 compilation, released in 2000, adds Game Boy Color support instead, with the whole game being colorized. Additionally, this version is based on the Japanese version, and so it keeps the Japanese song names and keeps the Cross instead of the Axe.
The Japanese Collection version updates the copyright date, and removes "TM and" and "Licensed by Nintendo". The European Collection version uses a different logo image than the original, and removes all copyright information from the title screen entirely. Additionally, while not pictured above, the versions included on Castlevania Anniversary Collection are the same as the original Game Boy versions but with "Licensed by Nintendo" removed.

The European Collection version removes the bottom row of pixels from the "Stage Select" banner for some reason. This change also applies to the "Sound Select" banner in the sound test and the "Password" banner on the password entering screen.
