So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.

While Sega's Columns games are generally pretty good, Columns Crown falls pretty short in quality, and by the point of its release the series' formula was being seen as dated.

Unused Menu Graphics

There seems to be graphics for an unused menu.

The first set of options are drawn in what seem to be the same font as the "GAME OVER"/"LINKS" text instead of the normal menu's more generic style.

  • 2P VS MODE
  • 2P VS MODE (yes, again)

After this, some (very poorly-drawn) Japanese options are listed:

  • ランキング (Ranking)
  • こうかん (unknown, possibly the trade feature?)
  • おぷしょん (Option)

After that, some other options appear in a different palette and layout:


None of these are actually seen on any of the in-game menus, as far as I can tell.

More Font

There's actually a whole font that seems to take several more pages of characters than is actually needed, but the Japanese version will need to be checked first.
