This game is known in North America as "Bust-A-Move Again [Model NGM-248]".

Even though it is not shown on the title screen, the marquee and promotional fliers for the US version call the game "Bust-A-Move Again EX", which was probably used to differentiate from the original Taito F3 version released years earlier.

The original US release of "Bust-A-Move Again" for the Taito F3 board removed all Puzzle Bobble style levels, story, characters and replaced Bub and Bob with generic human hands. However, this MVS port retains the original Puzzle Bobble 2 assets for the US release.

This MVS version is a port from the 1995 version of "Puzzle Bobble 2" and is the first (and maybe the only at this time) port from 'coin-op to coin-op'!
