To do:
A few unused themes.

Loosely based on the TV series of the same name, both of which bombed horribly outside Japan.

Regional Differences

In the Japanese release, the game featured an e-Reader option allowing players to unlock characters, courses and challenges in the game using special e-Reader cards.

This feature was removed in the Western release, due to the unpopularity of the e-Reader device in the West. All vehicles, courses and challenges were instead made available to unlock in the game via the completion of cups and challenges.

Unused Text

At 542BF4 (US version) is a leftover English phrase.

Download e-Reader card data.

While this text is not in the EU version, both versions have related "Card e-Reader+ Cup" and "Card Course" graphics.

Unused Courses

The game has remnants of additional courses. To access them, enter the following Code Breaker codes, then choose either Time Attack or Training (which can be unlocked via Action Replay code 5742F0F9 28626452, if they aren't already) and press Select at the Course Select screen. The course map will change to the chosen course's to verify the selection.

17      Sand Ocean      Sand Ocean II
18      White Land      White Land II

At a glance, the names might suggest that these tracks were meant to be more replicas of classic F-Zero tracks. However, it's more likely that the tracks were actually meant to be Expert Class variants of the original eight tracks, as the harder tracks in this game are all suffixed with a "II" to indicate a variant.

Unfortunately, "Mute City II" seems to be the only track that had been altered in this fashion – though, the alterations are more in line with the original game's third Mute City track than the second.

It's also worth noting that there was never a "Port Town III" in any game, and both the normal "White Land II" and the unused "White Land II" share the same name. (The unused variant should be "White Land III," if "Port Town III" is any indication.)
