Mocking Bird

In the European release, in the French, German, Italian and Spanish languages, a small caption is displayed below the bottom screen when a skill is triggered. Caption graphics for the character Domingo's skill, Mocking Bird, exist, but as this skill's ability is to trigger another, different skill, these are never displayed.

Regional Differences

Logo Displays

The Japanese release displays two more logos in the bottom screen prior to the title sequence. These were replaced by a "Licensed by Nintendo" in the US and European releases.

Adittionally, in the localizations, this sequence cannot be skipped, while it is possible to do so in the original Japanese release.

The Japanese version plays a sound during the title screen sequence. Despite not present in the US/Europe releases, it's still found unused.
