    Alex Kidd in High-Tech World does, though.

    And Fist of the North Star to Black Belt.

    A bunch of SMS games got bastardized in Brazil (Wonder Boy games, Astro Warrior, Psycho Fox) with Turma da Monica and Sapo Xule licenses.

    Castlevania 3 wasn't a complete overhaul, but there were a lot of changes.

    Fuck deleted my post by trying to edit. Hate it. All the good ones have been taken anyway.

    The 2nd Kunio-kun GB game (Bangai Ranto Hen) was overhauled to Double Dragon 2 in the US.

  6. Bomberman had that weird period where they didn't want to actually call them Bomberman games in the west.

    Bomber King FC-> Robo Warrior NES
    Bomber King 2 -> Blaster Master Boy
    Bomber Boy -> Atomic Punk/Dynablaster
    Bomberman World AC -> New Atomic Punk/New Dynablaster
    Bomberman GB -> Wario Blast!

    The soundtracks were different due to Konami using a different chip that allowed more sound channels.

    Most importantly it had little gargoyle things instead of hunchbacks. The US missed them so much it brought them back I guess.

    It's not a complete overhaul type game, though. Stop pls.

  9. thank you. I guess my interpretation of “substantially” differs from most.

    Hey, didn't all the Crazy Castle games have like harder to license cartoon protagonists than Bugs Bunny in Japan? I think they were like Mickey Mouse and Roger Rabbit.

    Who cares.
