Notes: Lots more unused stuff hidden in the game not documented yet!
A horror-themed rail shooter that led to sequels, spin-offs, a remake in 2021, and a poorly-received film. According to developer Sega AM1, lots of content was scrapped due to time constraints, arcade hardware limitations, poor player feedback, and even fears of controversy.

There are three regions in the 'Game Assignments' section of the service menu: Japan, USA, and Export. Export appears to be identical to USA, though missing the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
The screen shown before starting the attract mode is completely different. USA has the standard "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen common of the era, while Japan has a copyright notice screen. Export has no screen whatsoever.
The game's subtitles are formatted differently between the two versions, with Japan's being at the top right and USA's being at the bottom. Although a Japanese game's subtitles being in Japanese is completely unremarkable...
There is at least two instances of subtitles completely missing from the USA version, in the attract mode. The first is the woman calling on the phone, and the second is Curien's mini speech.
Each stage in the Japanese version has the chapter's name in Japanese directly below the English one, whereas USA, fittingly, does not.
