Rip cutscene music and Stage Clear jingle.

Lupin III is one of the earliest licensed video games in Japan (even though it is hard to tell by the graphics) where you shuffle around a maze to steal money while avoiding the guards. Sounds familiar?

Regional Differences

The Japanese version (listed as Set 1 in MAME) has the logo in Japanese with English text while the International version (listed as Set 2) has an English logo with no text. Set 2 can also change the dipswitch between English and Japanese with English being the default setting.

Revisional Differences


Set 1 does not have any music during the cutscenes where Lupin tries to impress Fujiko while Set 2 adds music. Set 2 also adds the stage clear jingle.

In Set 1 after completing Stage 3 shows the last cutscene where Lupin and Fujiko are in love. In Set 2 however Fujiko says "Much Better!" and the player has to wait until completing Stage 4 where she says "Darling I love you!". After the cutscene in both versions just loop the final cutscene after completing stages.
