The Revenge of Shinobi
Attachment
The Japanese version of the game was renamed "The Super Shinobi". Putting a US copy of the game into a Japanese console will still show the title as The Super Shinobi. Likewise, playing a Japanese copy of the game on a American or European machine will still show the title as Revenge of Shinobi.

Ken's original stage from "Street Fighter Alpha" was replaced with a beach stage in "Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix". The beach stage itself bares a strong resemblance to a piece of "Street Fighter II" artwork in which all the characters (including the "Final Fight" characters) are enjoying a day at the beach. The characters included in the background of the beach stage are Guile, Blanka, Cammy, Dee Jay, Zangief, E. Honda, M. Bison, Sagat, Balrog & Vega.

Disney's Aladdin
A long-standing debate exists over which of the two Aladdin ports - one for SNES made by Capcom and one for Sega Genesis made by Virgin Games - is actually the better version. Game designer Shinji Mikami, who made the SNES version, actually claims the Genesis port is better:

"If I didn't actually make [the SNES game], I would probably buy the Genesis one. Animation-wise, I think the Genesis version's better. The Genesis version had a sword, actually. I wanted to have a sword."

Mikami cites other problems for the SNES port besides the lack of bladed weapons. The cover art also did not include the "Genie" character, who is the most iconic member of the cast. This upset a lot of fans of the movie. Mikami said:

"Originally, the front of the Super Famicom package had a genie on it. Disney said no to that, so we had to move the genie to the back of the package in a smaller size. But the Sega version, they had the genie on the front."

According to Polygon and game director Dave Perry, who created the Genesis port of the game, the lack of Genie on the front cover could have had something to do with actor Robin Williams and his annoyance at the way Disney was using his character's likeness in promotional materials, such as video games:

"That put the use of the Genie as 'sensitive' during those discussions."

Dave Perry was happy to hear about how Shinji Mikami felt about his port of the game. Ironically, his opinion was opposite of Mikami's about both Aladdin games:

"I'm really biased as we made the original game and got Disney to deliver the animation. So I'd flip the quote, 'If I didn't actually make the Genesis version I'd probably buy the SNES one'."

Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter

Due to cultural differences, Norimaro, a character based on Japanese comedian Noritaro Kinashi, was not supposed to be available in the international version of the game. The code that allowed him to be a playable character was actually locked out in the programming if the game was not set to the Japanese region. However, ROM files of the game later proved that Norimaro was, in fact, originally planned to be available since all of his dialogue was translated to English. Although he is not playable in the international version without memory editing, he can still be seen in the first gallery picture in the game.
