The opening and ending songs were altered from the Japanese version of the game. The opening song in the Japanese version was a song called "Electric Communication" from J-Pop group Ganasia, and the ending theme was another song from the band, called "Brand New Way". Both songs are actually quite a lot better than the slightly bland instrumentals that played in the opening and ending of the U.S. and European versions.
