Title"Kabuto" is Japanese for helmet, often describing the great war helmets of the samurai, which sometimes had decorative antlers and spikes.
US versionDue to concerns about the game's ratings, the topless Sea Ravens got a bra. It can be removed by deleting a file from the HD. However, the game was rated "M" anyway.
The bra was also added for all PlayStation 2 releases.
