English version published 1994-12 in North America and Europe. These versions had optional support for the Konami's Justifier light gun.

English versions censorship:
The Japanese version populates the Outer Haven with parodies of sci-fi characters from the movies Planet of the Apes, Alien, and 9 others (HELP). But the English version replace them with Konami characters. Bill Rizer and Lance Bean of the Contra series (who are actually parodies of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone), Simon Belmont and Dracula from Castlevania,
Katrina is 14 in the Japanese version but 18 in the Englishversion, but still appears nude in both
In the death scene, Snatcher's breast is exposed in the Japanese version. But the topless snatchers are present in both versions.
A dying dog the twiches in the Japanes version is motionless in the English version
The Japanese snatchers look more like a T-800 endoskeleton from the Terminator movies series.
