The Japanese version has some differences to the US and World version :
• The colours are a little bit different (more saturated)
• The boss of the 3rd stage is different in the Japan version: in fact, there's a new boss named Mika, and she can summon her 2 sisters Anna and Gita, in the US and World versions, she is replaced by the Hook's clones.
