>『ザ・スーパー忍』には、0、1、2、3と実は全部で4つのバージョンが存在します。
>日本で発売されたのは0と3で、アメリカでは4バージョンとも発売されたはずです。

There are four versions at the time of this interview.

now
0: Super Shinobi, The (Japan)
1: Revenge of Shinobi, The (USA, Europe)
2: Revenge of Shinobi, The (USA, Europe) (Rev A)
3: Revenge of Shinobi, The (USA, Europe) (Rev B)

However, in the interview it is said that all four versions were USA released.
And in Japan it is said that they released two versions (0 and 3).
It has been confirmed that it was actually released in Japan.
Japan Box art copyright ©SEGA1989MADEINJAPAN is written for the 0.
Japan Box art copyright ©SEGA1989 is written for the 3.

I think the interview is correct.

He is said 0 - is the initial version in Japan, and 3 - the last version. Just the last, not the last in Japan.

Segaretro is more reliable source.
