The sale might have begun yesterday that more remixing work will come after someone has bought the CD. But before the game’s finalization/release, someone had the guts to sequence the Stage 1 song of Dodonpachi Saidaioujou at Nico Nico Douga and as you can know, it had wrong sets of notes but that was how he heard of the song when the game was being location tested. When the game’s PV was released by Cave, we should be able to hear the whole song of Stage 1 from that game although the voices and the last part of the song may be the only distractions in my opinion.
Eventually, I started to refer to that video for some arrangement work of Stage 1 from that game and somehow, it sounded like a good arrangement I did. However, there were three minor flaws within this rendition. First, the instruments may not be as accurate as the original version. Second, the chorus start part from the original version uses some kind of sound effect in which I had no idea on how to manipulate things like that. Third involves some inaccurate sets of notes that made the enhancements inaccurate.

Last but not least, after the game was out in the arcades, another person at Nico Nico Douga had the opportunity to make his own rendition based on the final original version as heard in the PV video. I believe that the game was still in the prototype phase during location testing as if the warning sound effect was different, the ‘Kan’ circle thing on the title screen was missing and the mini display of the character speaking which is on top was missing as well. They may represent some kind of military video communication systems installed inside the fighter planes where the pilots can communicate while piloting.
