This edition is very similar to the original arcade release. However, there are a few more options from which the player can select. The game can either be played as a 4-player cabinet (full screen) or 6-player cabinet (wide screen) to mimic the two versions that were in arcades. The player can also select between the American ROM (character uses life to fuel mutant power) or the Japanese ROM (character uses mutant power pellets to fuel mutant power & Japanese text subtitles).
XBLA also has the ability to be played on-line with up to 6 players. Players can select the difficulty as well as the starting level.
