Debug Menu

Compared to the Japanese debug menu, the US version is missing a lot.

Using GameShark code 0100A7C0 or Game Genie code 001-E3F-6EA for the Super Game Boy version (002-03F-6EA for the Game Boy Color version) will start in a basic debug menu offering a sound test and a time setting modifier.

The US release disables the menu selection after 03, so Game Genie code 1FF-819-E66 (Super Game Boy) or 1FF-759-E66 (Game Boy Color) is required to access the disabled features readily accessible in the Japanese version.

Most of the font in the US version is unreadable because it was removed during the localization process. The fonts are unreadable in the Game Boy Color version because the palettes are completely white.

Version Differences

To do:
Compare the GB and GBC versions.

Game Boy Color enhancements were added to the US re-release, as well as the European version. This upgrade was never available in Japan.
