Help me #12: The "Yaguchi Version" of Dragon Slayer 4 for FC /

It is unknown if it exists. I'm looking for the FC version where Namco is located in Yaguchi(矢口) instead of Tamagawa(多摩川).

NAMCOT moved its offices from Tamagawa to Yaguchi during this period.
Most of the Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei games released around this time are Tamagawa versions, with a few Yaguchi versions.
A Yaguchi version may also exist for Dragon Slayer 4.

FC Package 多摩川(Tamagawa) version

FC ROM cartridge 多摩川(Tamagawa) version

FC Manual 多摩川(Tamagawa) version
The location is indicated on the package, ROM cassette, and manual.
I have checked a total of about 400 so far, all in the Tama River. If you see any, please let us know.

[SOLVED THX]Help me #8: Video or screenshot of the mobile phone version of the credits scene / 携帯電話版スタッフロールの動画またはスクリーンショット

SOLVED THX / 解決しました!ありがとうございます!(Click to view details / クリックで詳細を表示)

I'm looking for a video or screenshot of the mobile phone version of the staff roll. It can be fragmentary.

As I recall, the content of the mobile phone version of the staff roll is almost the same as the FC (Japan) version.

What's different is that all the characters used in the FC version are alphanumeric, while the Japanese character "バンダイナムコゲームズ(Bandai Namco Games)" is used, and there is a character "BlackJack Corp." which seems to be the name of the company in charge of the porting to the mobile phone version.
