Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
In the June 14th, 2015 Direct, Sakurai stated that the Suzaku Castle stage was the first in the series to have music that changes as the timer gets close to zero.

Castlevania: Dracula X
The Japanese version of the game is called "悪魔城ドラキュラXX Akumajō Dorakyura Daburu Ekkusu" - which in English literally translates to "Devil's Castle Dracula Double X". The American version, however, is simply called "Castlevania: Dracula X". Likewise, the Australian & European versions were renamed to "Castlevania: Vampire's Kiss".

There are also several differences between the titles screens of the three games. The Australian/European version does not have blood on its title screen. The Japanese version also uses two religious crosses in its "Double X" title, rather than a single red X used by the American version. The "PASS WORD" option is also spelled incorrectly in the Japanese version, but was later corrected as "PASSWORD" in the International version.

In the Australian/European & Japanese versions, the boomerang cross weapon looks like a religious cross, but was replaced with a regular X-shaped cross in the International version. This was likely done to avoid any religious complaints.
