|Zombie Nation was released in September 1991 in North America.|
The game is first released in Japan under the name Abarenbou Tengu. The US version is released a month later. As both versions only has differences between the sprites, with the Japanese version having a tengu mask belonging to Japanese folklore. The US version has major graphical and story changes, replacing the tengu mask with the decapitated samurai head. Aside from the differences, both games are practically identical, with the Japanese Version having only a few major differences:
- In Abarenbou Tengu, the player must obtain the rapid fire ability. In Zombie Nation, the player starts with it.
- The main character's sprite is not that of the flying samurai head, Namakubi, but that of a Japanese konoha tengu head. The title screen is different with the tengu's head being incorporated into it.
- The boss of Round I is an evil Statue of Liberty in both games but with a slightly different sprite; instead of being green with snakes in place of its crown in Zombie Nation, it's red and has a normal crown.
