  • The new stage from Shin mode is included.
  • The limit on the amount of scoring items that can be on the screen at once has been removed.
  • The characters' item-sucking radius in ninja mode has been increased.
  • Scoring items stay on the screen longer.
  • When the hit counter has reached 256, cancelled enemy bullets produce medium scoring items.
  • If a laser-shooting enemy is destroyed, its lasers turn into small energy items.
  • Energy items produced by options appear with a different timing.
  • More energy items are produced by an enemies' destruction.
  • More suicide bullets appear when in defensive ninja mode.
  • More scoring items are produced by medium enemies.
  • The Type A ship has increased movement speed in the offensive ninja mode, and the time it take for its options to return to the default formation after exiting ninja mode has been reduced.
  • The Type B ship has increased movement speed in the offensive ninja mode, and the amount of energy items its options produce when overlapping an enemy has been increased.
  • The Type C ship has increased movement speed in the defensive ninja mode, and the amount of energy items its options produce when overlapping an enemy has been increased. Also, the time it take for its options to return to the default formation after exiting ninja mode has been increased.

Shin

In Shin, shooting enemies with the spread shot generates blue orbs, while shooting them with the focused shot or the option generates green energy items that fill the ninja meter. The closer to an enemy the player is when he shoots it, the more items he gets. In ninja mode, the player can hold the shot button to unload all his accumulated blue orbs, which damage enemies, turn bullets into small gold items and grant the player katanas. By pressing the Ninja Mode button the player can then unleash his katanas, which damage enemies and turn bullets into large gold items.
