KNT's Rant

Present at 0x1B518 in both the US and Japanese ROM is a rather colorful rant by Yukio Kaneda, who also programmed Guerrilla War. (Note that line breaks were added for readability; the original contains none.)

PROG. NO KNT DESU.
NINTENDO NO BOKE AHO-KASU SHINE TSUBURERO-
FAMICOM NANKA KIRAIDA-!
Aho no Mr.T!! Koroshitannen!
Original Japanese Translated
PROG. NO KNT DESU. PROGKNTです。 This is the programmer, KNT.
NINTENDO NO BOKE AHO-KASU SHINE TSUBURERO- 任天堂のボケ、アホ滓!死ね!潰れろ!- Those asshole scum Nintendo fools! Die! Go bankrupt!
FAMICOM NANKA KIRAIDA-! ファミコンなんか嫌いだ! I hate the Famicom!!
Aho no Mr.T!! Koroshitannen! 阿呆のMr.T!!殺したんねん! That idiot, Mr. T!! He fuckin' killed it!
(Translation: GlitterBerri, RahanAkero)
