GameFAQ's code for switching the game to the English SNES version, Brawl Brothers: 'Constantly press B,A,X, and Y during the Jaleco logo until you reach the title screen. When successful you'll reach a black screen. It is actually the title screen. Press start once and then press up once to move to the options because you cannot see the screen properly. When you exit from the options the game will now change to "Brawl Brothers".'
("Constantly press" means hitting B,A,X,Y, one by one in that order, rapidly and repeatedly.)
According to Wikipedia, "the Japanese version of the game features different character names, no maze-like stages, an expanded ending sequence and the addition of a groin kick move for playable character Douglas Bild."
(Wikipedia also mentions "It is the only known SNES game that features its Japanese version on the same cartridge." But is Rushing Beat Ran the only SFC game with its English version on the same cartridge? ;))

Love the pile-driving, ground-comboing mechanics in this fast belt scroller; kinda don't like the regular enemies being so trigger happy when you've got limited continues; really don't like the bosses being effectively unhittable outside of your Ikari/Angry powered-up invulnerable state...which I had turned off because I didn't like its flashy FX. ;_; Had to save-scum the fourth, ultra-long-feeling stage. Next time I play with Ikari ON and Easy difficulty.
