Despite the game's cover artwork depicting Sherlock Holmes wearing his signature deerstalker cap and tweed Inverness cape, throughout the game he's actually never shown wearing it. In fact, when Holmes asks Watson to retrieve the cap for use in solving a puzzle, he describes it as "the one I never wear but everyone seems to think I wear day and night."

In the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes is never explicitly described in text as ever wearing a deerstalker. The first time Holmes had ever been depicted wearing one was in the illustrations for the short The Boscombe Valley Mystery drawn by Sidney Paget and published in The Strand Magazine in 1891, though written by Doyle.

In the early stages of development, Pulseman was originally meant to play similarly to Magical Taluluto (based on the Shonen Jump manga of the same name), the first game directed by Ken Sugimori who was also the director for Pulseman.
For example, he originally had the ability to turn into a fighter jet and fly by pressing the jump button twice, but this was scrapped, as it didn’t fit his character.

Series: Project Diva
The song "Senbonzakura" has been removed from every Korean version of the Project Diva games. The song makes many references to war and the revamping of the Japanese nation during the end of the 1800s, of which both Japan and Korea were feuding at that time. Even today, tensions still exist between both regions and the song was deemed too controversial for Korean audiences.
