Shooting Mode
Training Mode

Character Select

Voice lines for the character select screen for the four unused mechs (Hamma-Hamma, Qubeley, The-O, and Z Gundam) are included in the sound effects. They use the Gundam: Battle Assault male announcer's voice.

Game Modes

Lines to unlock "Shooting Mode" and "Training Mode" exist. Neither of these modes exist in the final release.
A voice line to unlock "Versus Mode" exists. Both forms of "Versus Mode" (Versus CPU and Versus 2P) are available immediately, leaving no opportunity to use this line.

Match Announcer

The male match commentator has an unused line saying "You Suck!"

"You suck!"

Character Voices

The line Duo (Deathscythe's pilot) uses for his super in Street Mode ("Slash, slash, slash!") exists as a lower-quality sound sample meant for in-match use, but goes unused. Each "Slash!" is a separate sample.




This line was likely intended to be used for Deathscythe's Mega Special, named Hell Scissors. Beam Scissors is the name of Deathscythe's scythe.

"Beam Scissors!"

Unused Text

The text for "Story Mode" exists at the top of a list of titles for the main menu, but "Street Mode" was used instead. "Street Mode" exists at the bottom of this list.

The images used for the names on top of the mechs on character select exist for the four unused mechs. There's no entry for these mechs on the character select screen to reference.

Debug Text

There is debug text present in the file DATA/DEBUG.PRG which goes unused.

As mentioned above, the Japanese release split the game into two, with Vol.12 containing the Mobile Fighter G Gundam roster and Vol.13 containing the New Mobile Report: Gundam Wing Endless Waltz roster (The second title uses the original Wing logo but most of the mobile suits are from the Endless Waltz OVA.) Both games still have the Universal Century mobile suits, however.

The Burning and Dark Gundams also go by their original Japanese names ("God" and "Devil" Gundam) in Vol.12.
