CHR + PRG Test
Holding any button on Controller 2 and pressing Reset will launch a simple test on the game's CHR and PRG banks. If the tests succeed, the game will continue as normal. However, the screen will turn red if the PRG test fails or blue if the CHR test fails.
For obvious reasons, Kitarou was replaced with a nondescript ninja child. The weapons were changed from a flying finger, his vest, and his geta to shuriken, feathers, and boomerangs respectively.
The title screen theme was recomposed to fit the ninja aesthetic slightly better.
The title screen's logo was altered slightly to look more generic for Ninja Kid.
The most notable difference is Kitarou being changed to a generic ninja child referred to as "Kyo" in the game's manual.
