    1. INTRODUCTION
    ======================================================================= 
    
    This is in no way a walkthrough or FAQ, if you need them I suggest you 
    read one. This is a list for the Name Changes between the 1990 NES 
    English translation and the 2003 PSX English remake. 
    
    The purpose of this is if you are using NES guides for the PSX game or 
    vice versa, though it is written for those using NES guides to easily 
    translate the name changes, but it could be used the other way around.  
     
    You may use this list in anyway you'd like...not much to say since it's 
    just a list, but I would apperiate credit as this has taken a lot of 
    time to do.
    
    For updates and corrections to the list check here at www.gamefaqs.com
    
    Finally the list is 100% complete! I started the list using the PAL UK 
    version and I have consulted the US Beta, so it should be 100% the same, 
    but you can never tell. Also there is room for human error.
     
    So feel free to drop me an e-mail if you have missing information or 
    corrections.
