Two slight variations exist of the American black label edition. The original release featured silver front art on the booklet.
Various release dates have been reported for this game. Any date in January is impossible, as the files on the discs are dated 1999.02.10. A press release dated 1999.02.23 stated
For Immediate Release, so I assume that is the correct release date.
