Other than the obvious logo change, "PUSH START BUTTON" became "PRESS START" and the copyright font was completely changed. Notably, the Koei Tecmo Games Ltd. copyright uses Japanese characters in the original release.

The Japanese name is (translated) Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition. The latter is a game series that is well-known in Japan, which is what the core of this game is based around, but not well-known elsewhere. As a result, the localization team changed the game's title to prevent confusion.
