An early, unfinished prototype of Akuu Senki Raijin for the Nintendo Famicom Disk System.


  • This build is unfinished and impossible to complete normally. When entering the final level, the game loads a glitched map that only allows the player to progress for a few screens.
  • Bosses are encountered in a different order, and all but one use early designs. The stage 4 boss has one animation frame consisting entirely of placeholder tiles.
  • Completely different title screens, referring to the game as "Rising".
  • File load screen is very minimal.
  • Stage number is not announced when entering a new stage.
  • Only bosses drop health recovery items in the proto, where all enemies can drop them in the retail version.
  • Shields cost far less in the proto.
  • Levels tend to have fewer background details. Some later areas just have large fields of a single color.
