Aliens (1990 Arcade Game) - Japan Set 1, Both Loops

I never realised the Japanese release of Konami's Aliens arcade game was so different from the versions released in other territories. As well as dropping the travelling APC levels, Japan lost all reference to the Newt character and Ripley's pressing need to rescue her. To compensate, the Japanese coin-op was easier with weaker (but less brightly coloured and therefore more movie accurate) enemies. MAME monster KIN takes us through both loops in the above clip.
