* CutAndPasteTranslation: In the English version, you face against the army of an African country who kidnapped the President of the U.S. In the Japanese version, the plot is the same, except the name of the country you have to face is only named as ''Country R''[[note]]In Japanese, R国 (R-Kuni), who is heavily implied to be Russia. Since depicting the Russians as the enemy, at least in the U.S., was starting to fall from fashion, it's very possibly Capcom's American branch decided to change the country to something less stereotypical.[[/note]]
