The European version features a different Capcom logo and jingle on bootup.

The larger title graphic and updated copyright info meant that the Capcom logo had to be removed from the international versions.


Japan International
Christian! Egyptian!

The crosses in the first level were changed to ankhs in Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts. Note that the coffins farthest in the background were not changed.


Japan International
Judaic! Carnelian?

In keeping with toning down religious aspects of the game, the final boss' name was changed from Samael to Sardius.

Japan International
The what? Oh, that makes more sense.

A spelling error ("backgraund") was fixed in the international releases.

European Differences

The European version removed certain enemies and obstacles in the game. Perhaps not only a measure to reduce the difficulty, but also to reduce potential slowdown.

  • Stage 1-1: Two Skull Flowers were removed.
  • Stage 1-2: The last Belial right before the boss was removed.
  • Stage 2-1: Two swinging blades were removed.
  • Stage 3-1: Four Fire Killers were removed.
  • Stage 4-1: Four Skull Flowers were removed.
  • Stage 4-2: Four gas streams were removed.
  • Stage 5-2: Two Werewolves were removed.
  • Stage 6: One Red Arremer was removed.
  • Stage 7: Two Blue Killers and the Red Arremer were removed.

The sound effect for the regular crossbow is noticeably different compared to the Japanese and American version.

A bug was fixed that caused Arthur's actions to be wrong in the attract mode and ending sequence when the button settings were not the default.


In the Japanese version, the crumbling wall in Stage 7 does not block you as it's disappearing.
