The NES version, while starring the same main character (our man, Ryu Hayabusa), bears little or no connection to the original arcade Nina Gaiden; nonetheless, some aspects of it were carried over to the NES title. The first stage is a vague adaptation of the arcade's first stage, the opening cutscenes are resemblant albeit not tightly. Both games feature Jason Voorhees look-alikes and, moreover, Bloody Malth from the NES game reminds of the coin-op's final boss.

The word "Gaiden" in the title means "Letter". It can also mean "sidestory".
