Silhouette Mirage for the PlayStation is a port of the Saturn sidescroller developed by Treasure. It's the only version of the game to be released outside of Japan, albeit not without some tampering from Working Designs.
- The PlayStation version adds a new boss (The Reaper) and a new story path that was not featured in the Saturn version.
- Several extra background layers and other details in certain stages that existed in the Saturn version are missing in the PlayStation version.
- The ending song was dubbed and rewritten into English.
- The player can save the game to a memory card in either slot, rather than just slot 1. The memory card icon was also animated.
- Dual Shock controller support was added to the game.
- The "Options" and "Status" menus were added.
- All of the videos were remastered to look better.
- The Lunar 2 preview was added to the game.
- The Zohar mini-game was added to the credits roll.
- Super Core Fighter Mode was added to the US version.
- There was a bug with the walker mini-boss in stage 2-2, where you would knock it off the back of the truck and it would not return to continue the fight, leaving you stuck there.
- The Japanese version's load screens are plain black screens with "Now Loading..." printed in the lower-left corner. The US version features artwork.
Many changes were made to the gameplay in the US version that makes the game a lot more difficult.
- All of the items in the shops were made more expensive.
- Enemy attacks do more damage.
- Using attacks did not cost Spirit in the Japanese version of the game, meaning that you could use any of the weapons as much as you wanted.
- In the Japanese version you could not drain Spirit from enemies by using a same-attribute attack; it would simply lower their Spirit.
- In the Japanese version almost all the characters and places are named after places and figures from the Bible. Many of these characters and place names were altered in the US version.
- There are numerous story differences, mostly to make the game's biblical references less evident.
- The Hare Wares sprites were censored. His cigarette was replaced with a gloved hand, and the burning cross was replaced with a dragon.
