Unused Sound Test
The game contains an unused sound test, which can be accessed by entering the GameShark code 010B20C5 once you start a level.
Stored as sound 17, this is the exact same tune that plays when your character dies in Castlevania: The Adventure.
Titled "Continue", this one was going to be used on the game over screen, but the final game opted for silence instead.
It is unknown where these two songs, named "Okada 1" and "Okada E" respectively, were going to be used, but they both seem to be the exact same song. The only difference is the instrumentation.
The international version uses passwords instead of a save file.
The Japanese version features a spooky animated title with a purple thundering cloud effect. The international version shows a poppy title card with less ghoul.
Compared to the international logo, the Japanese logo is rather bland.
