Visuals: On a black background, the stacked red text "SUPER KANEKO NOVA SYSTEM" wipes in, with "KANEKO" being the corporate logo, "SUPER" and "NOVA" being in a rounded font with the "O" in the style of an eye looking upward, and "SYSTEM" being in a standard font with the trademark. The version number in italics, the system copyright info in white "System Copyright by KANEKO Co., Ltd. 1996 All Rights Reserved" and the byline "Software PRODUCED BY or UNDERLICENSE from KANEKO Co., Ltd.", all wipe in below the logo.
