Thread: Japanese Games Minimally Reworked for Western Release

  1. Japanese Games Minimally Reworked for Western Release

    As I've mentioned before, I started doing biweekly themes for the games that I run on demo on the 11 displays I have set up in the store. One of the themes I want to do is the thread title. But I'm having a hard time coming up with a bunch aside from Dragon Power, Whomp 'Em, and Street Combat. I knows there's quite a few but I'm brain farting and thought it might make for a fun thread.







    In before Doki Doki Panic.

  5. Magical Hat MD/Decapattack Genesis
    Fudō Myōō Den FC/Demon Sword NES
    Akumajo Densetsu FC/Castlevania III NES
    Zelda II NES/FC
    Kame no Ongaeshi Urashima Densetsu FC/Xexyz NES

    Contra FC has more differences from the NES Contra than the Probotector version. Probotector is pretty much the same game as NES Contra with altered sprites. Contra FC has cutscenes and extra background animations in some areas.

  7. Not quite a total overhaul, but I remember Dynamite Headdy and Silhouette Mirage had pretty substantial changes to the US versions.

  8. Oh yeah, Decap Attack is a good one! Same with the Noid.
    Keep 'em coming!
    What was so drastically changed about Castlevania 3? Some crosses removed? I'm looking for total character changes or something like that. Stuff like "Alex Kidd rice ball is referred to as a hamburger" doesn't meet my criteria.

  9. Fist of the North Star -> Last Battle
    You sir, are a hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.

  10. Magic John -> Totally Rad
    Solbrain -> Shatterhand
