Other Differences

  • The game was made easier for the release outside of Japan. For example, Aleste's yellow homing orbs became much stronger and the steady increase in rank was toned down. The Japanese version had plenty of character dialogue stored as Red Book audio tracks on the disc, but many of these tracks ended up being unused. The respective dialogues simply appeared as text.
  • After beating the game, an Omake option will be unlocked in the option menu. In the Japanese version, there will be several images, but in the western versions, it just freezes the game.
