As with its predecessor, Kujakuou 2: Geneijou is based on the Japanese manga series Kujakuou. During its transition to the West, the majority of Kujakuou references were removed, although the basic plot remains the same.
Lead character Kujaku (as Joe Yamato) sports an entirely new outfit in Mystic Defender, and parts of the game were lightly censored for Western markets. Changes include turning some pink flesh-coloured enemies green and giving the Supreme Deity's daughter some clothes to wear in the final scenes of the game.
