Hmmm...
To do:
Translate the hints, and see if they're the same or different from the US version.

Another one of Tengen's port of Atari's arcade games to the NES. Similar to Super Sprint (NES), the Japanese Famicom version was actually licensed by Nintendo.

Regional Differences

Title Screen

The title screen has a couple minor differences. Interestingly, unlike Super Sprint, they left the staff roll in the Japanese version.

  • The TENGEN logo in the US version was changed to HUDSON in the Japenese version, and was changed from a magenta coloring to an orange coloring. Interestingly, the Hudson logo isn't their traditional logo, but rather written in the Tengen logo's font.
  • The copyrights for the US version were changed in the Japanese version.

The Japanese version changes the button to start as Player 2 from the START button to the A button. This was because the Famicom's second controller lacked a START and SELECT button, and instead was replaced with a microphone.
