    UPDATES
    There are some serious differences between the Japanese version and the international versions of this game:

    • The Japanese version has character specific endings.
    • All characters feature their own voice in the Japanese version, the European version features 4 voice tracks for all characters (some of these in Spanish) & the USA version features a single voice track for all characters.
    • The Japanese version features three main different gameplay modes: Puzzle, Vs & Challenge. All other versions only feature Puzzle & Vs as selectable gameplay modes.
    • The Japanese version features three selectable skill levels for each gameplay mode (Easy, Normal & Difficult). All other versions only offer Easy & Normal skill settings.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Bonus Characters: Enter the character selection screen. To play as Devil, Strength and Empress, highlight the following characters and press Down on each (in order):
