When I start a game of Ninja Combat in AES mode with a memory card in the slot and a game save on the card, it never displays a choice to load or not on the screen. It just jumps straight to the loaded saved game. I have to remove the card from the slot when starting the game if I want to start from the beginning of the game.

Is this normal behavior for this game or is it just my setup? I noticed the NGCD version does show the load yes or no menu.
