The in-game HUD is different (as shown in the Capcom Nation Issue 1 Sampler Magazine). Character faces are on the top sides of the HUD (reusing their Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo sprites), the names are blue instead of green, the diamond in the timer is green, the health gauges and Mighty Combo gauges are different, and the Gem Gauges are different. Also, Move Commands don't appear on the gauges, there are no Stock Icons or items, and the shadows on the ground are missing.

The sign to the toilet room in the background of this stage is black in pre-release screenshots. In the final game, the sign flashes yellow and red.
