The title screen is almost completely different. The Japanese version also has an option for "3D Stage" that was removed from other versions.


However, graphics for this menu option are still in Sonic Triple Trouble, and the option can be re-enabled with Game Genie codes 041-49E-E66 031-31E-E62.

The title screen intro is different as well. In Sonic & Tails 2, Sonic and Tails run across the screen, then the game's logo comes up. In Sonic Triple Trouble, Knuckles jumps onto the title and laughs.

Level Select
