Sprites of Mario and Sonic seemingly frozen in carbonite are found in the VRAM tiles of the first stage. Judging by a screenshot in the game's development diary in German magazine Amiga Games, these were to appear shortly after the first miniboss.
This song is easily accessible through the sound test as track 11, but it never appears in-game. It resembles part of a track from its Amiga port, Turrican 3, where the song did actually appear in-game (albeit extended).
The game was rereleased for the Wii Virtual Console in 2008 with some changes. Unlike most edited Virtual Console games, which use patches, the changes to Mega Turrican were baked into the ROM itself.
The ROM's file name is "MegaTurrican_JUE_noDECO.SGD". As it suggests, all references to Data East were removed from the game.
Factor 5's address at the end of the credits was also updated.
