  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The game has never been re-released in any form anywhere — not even on the Japanese Virtual Console. If it were re-released anywhere besides the Japanese Virtual Console, then it probably would be released outside of Japan. This is also compounded with the following example below.
    • This applies to the movies as well as they have yet to be re-released on DVD.
  • No Export for You: The game has never been translated and released in the United States, despite being the spiritual predecessor of one of Capcom's biggest franchises since Street Fighter. This is understandable given to the graphic content in the game, and how it was impossible to tone it all down for the US. Even if it was released on the Virtual Console eShop, it would be given a hard "M" rating. On that note, the film was never released in the States either.
  • What Could Have Been: A lot of people suspect the reason the game was never released outside of Japan was again, due to the inappropriate content. As it turns out, Nintendo Power stated there were plans for an North American release. Unfortunately, it was completely impossible to tone it all down in accordance to Nintendo's censorship policies at the time.
