The "Castlevania" series is one of the oldest and most successful series in the gothic genre. There's nearly at least one Castlevania game for each system on the market. The Mega Drive game "The New Generation" was only released censored in Europe. The title of the Japanese version is "Vampire Killer", the US version is called "Castlevania: Bloodlines".

Compared was the censored European version with the uncensored US version.

Big thanks to KT for additional information (death animation)!

In the uncensored version the character "Eric Lecarde" has a different death animation. His spear soars, falls down again and spears the character in this version. The spear soars in the censored version too, but it doesn't fall down again:
