Secret Credits

This screen, found only in the Japanese version, can be seen by holding I + II and pressing Run at the title screen. Pressing the buttons again takes you to the options screen, which the US version goes to after pressing them the first time.

The text translates to "Kisshii, Osugi, Yuri", which are developer names ("Kisshii" being the "Kissie" mentioned above). Two of these names, Kisshii and Yuri (Yuriko Keino, the composer), also appear in the arcade version.
