The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Prototype of the Japanese version (initial build & release)
  • Debug menu can be activated at the title screen.
  • No music at the title screen or during gameplay
  • There are no voice-overs other than cutscenes in the first level (including no voice filters on the Boss character)
    • Cutscenes in Level 6 have no audio, however, two specific scenes at the start of the level plays audio of Japanese VA temporary lines from Level 1)
  • Character selection screen uses a different sound effect when moving between screens.
  • EKG monitor/senses display uses a different sound effect
  • Some of the stats vs goals are different
  • Certain item pickups aren't found in their respective areas in this build
  • Fight events take place in areas in the hub world and the first level has a significant increase in battles.
  • Levels 1 and 3 have slightly different names (Homerun Goes to Death & Woodpokkur, respectively)
  • Levels 5 and 6 have placeholder images instead of the final posters.
  • Levels 2, 4 and 5 cannot be entered via the Cinema Zone and must be accessed via the debug menu.
    • Attempting to access levels via Cinema Zone will start playing cutscenes from other levels.
    • Other levels will crash the game, but Level 5 will load Level 1 instead.
