Are you a bad enough dude to
Strider is a port of the arcade game.
The Japanese version uses the standard Sega logo seen in the majority of Sega developed Genesis titles. The international version instead uses a more unique logo (which had previously been seen in all versions of Castle of Illusion), also giving it a TM symbol.
Aside from the logo and copyright changes, "PUSH START BUTTON" was reworded to "PRESS START BUTTON" and no longer uses a unique font.
In the Japanese version, Hiryu makes a "HA!" sound when he swings his sword. The sample was removed from the international version, as had been done for the arcade game's localization.
The phrase "All sons of old gods, die!" for when you encounter the final boss, which was used in all versions of the arcade original, was also removed in the international versions.
Despite the International versions allow to continue (up to three times) by default. The Japanese version by default doesn't. In order to allow continues in the Japanese version, enter A, C, B, C, A, Start during the intro (where Grandmaster Meio laughs). If entered correctly, after getting a Game Over now the player will be able to continue (up to three times, obiously).
