Development Paths



Each level's StageData contains paths to what may be uncompiled level files. This example is from Bullet Bill's Touchy Trials (BazookaTouchLiftStage).

(Source: Original TCRF research)



The executable file, Kinopio.rpx, contains this path. The region ID is "Us" in the US version and "Eu" in the European version.

Removed Files

Multiple files contain references to files that do not exist in the final game.


HeapSizeDefine.byml in SystemData/MemorySystem.szs contains the names of these removed levels:

  • E3MovieLongExpressStage - An "E3Movie" version of Blizzard on the Star Express. This was presumably the version used in the E3 2014 trailer.
  • TestKawakitaK008Stage
  • TestKawakitaK010Stage
  • TestKitazonoLongExpressStage - A test level related to Blizzard on the Star Express.
  • DummyCourseSelectStage - Some kind of level select related stage.
  • DummyCourseSelectBonusStage - Some kind of level select or bonus related stage.
  • TestSatoLongExpress0807Stage - Another test level related to Blizzard on the Star Express.

Revisional Differences

Version 1.0

The game's initial release.

Version 1.1

Adds Amiibo support. If a Toad Amiibo is scanned, the player can replay any level and find the Pixel Toad sprite in a game of hide-and-seek. If any other Amiibo are scanned into the game, it will reward the player with either one or two extra lives.
