Prerelease:Sword of Vermilion
This page details prerelease information and/or media for Sword of Vermilion.
The screenshots on the back of the box include one with the overworld map HUD and a Vampire Bat. The most notable thing about this is the equipped Magic spell: "Rhythm", which isn't present in the final.
This would suggest that the spells underwent some change (or at least some very creative renaming) during development.
