I've checked the list of all games released on all versions of the Mini and did not see a single game that has not already been ripped / dumped elsewhere.

Curious as well as to which game or games you may be referring to.

There are some hidden M2 games that they call the Near Arcade versions.

I was under the impression those were actual arcade games, not PC Engine games. Interesting.

pc engine mini is kind of RPi, so there is a chance those alternative versions have nothing to do with PC engine itself.

From how I understand it, they are conversions which were common in the OG romhacking scene in Japan in the late 80s. It was the same for the Famicom version of Gradius. Rumor has it, Konami made it deliberately worse than the arcade version. Some enthusiasts figured out how to hack the rom and upgrade the visuals to get much closer to the arcade version. This was actually in a segment in "Game Center CX" - just please don't ask me which episode exactly. Putting those "near arcade versions" onto the Minis is a way of paying tribute to those Japanese OGs from the old days.

Because of the nature of the differences shown in the various videos, they appear to be adjusted/recompiled versions of the PC Engine ROMs (or extractions from CDROM).

But I haven't heard of any actual extractions/leaks yet, so we can't be certain until this happens.

I'm getting no character or enemy sprites in Lady Sword, both the translation and the orginal.
