The title screen is a little different between regions. Yep. Besides the title of the game being different, the copyright for 1989 in the Japanese version was changed to 1991 for the US version. Two years to localize the game and get Nintendo's endorsement, presumably.

Upon opening the cell door, you're greeted by this fine fellow informing you there is "no escape". He holds a bloody knife in one hand, and his own severed talking head in the other. For the US release, his head was reattached and his knife was cleaned off. How nice.
