Sound Test

"PATH OF FIEND" and "THEME OF THIEF" were renamed "FIEND'S PATH" and "THIEF'S THEME", respectively.

Bug Fix

GoldenAxeMD-AxeGlitch-REV00.png

After defeating the final boss, Death Bringer, his giant axe flies up into the air and lands in his chest. However, in co-op mode, the graphics for the axe are severely glitched. This error was fixed in the revision.

Misc.

The Sega screen is changed in REV01. Instead of the logo drawing itself, the whole logo draws from left to right, and the logo has a "™" instead of an "®". The "™" is also in the title screen.

Also, in REV01, when playing on Japanese or European systems, there is a region lock message.
