The title screen of the release for Pippin Atmark uses a different name than the packaging.

The Pippin port was simply titled Shock Wave on the packaging, but it was also identified as Shock Wave Invasion Earth: 2019 in the opening cutscene and Shockwave Assault: Invasion Earth on the title screen. The on-screen text remained in English while the dialog was dubbed in Japanese.[4] It was released in Japan by Bandai Digital Entertainment in 1996.[1]
