To show the version number, simply hold Select on Controller 1 for a while on the "Select Your Game!" screen. This may take a while to appear, so be patient.

Hidden Message

At the title screen, hold A + B, then press Start without letting go of A + B. Then, hold Select for a while until the hidden message pops up. K1 Nakanishi is most likely Keiichi Nakanishi, as 1 in Japanese is "ichi", so K + Ichi = Keiichi.

Sound Debugger

There was a "FAMICOM SOUND DEBUGER" mode present during the game's development, similar to the one from Silva Saga. In this game, the debugger code is less damaged than in Silva Saga, but there still aren't any crossrefs from the final game code and as a result the debugger no longer works.

The banner originally had the game's title in Japanese text, while the North American release changes it to the publisher's name. The company was changed from Seta to Romstar. Oh yeah, and can't forget that Licensed by Nintendo text. Gotta have that!
