Mario Kart 64/Audio Differences

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of Mario Kart 64.

Some of the voice clips and sound effects were changed in the international versions. This also affects the Thwomp's laugh, as it is actually just a slower version of Wario's laugh.

Title Screen

In the Japanese version, the voice heard on the title screen is a bunch of Japanese kids shouting "Mario Kart!", while in the international versions you get to hear the titular person of this game, Mario, say "Welcome to Mario Kart".

Japan International
"Mario Kart!"
"Welcome to Mario Kart!"

System Voice

In the international versions, the menus are narrated by Mario himself. In the Japanese versions, John Hulaton (incorrectly credited as 'John Huraton') did the system voice narration instead.

Japan International
"Battle!"
"Congratulation!"
"Data!"
"Mario Grand Prix!"
"Okay?"
"Option!"
"Select Level!"
"Select Map!"
"Select Your Player!"
"Time Attack!"
"Vahsus!"
"Battle!"
"Congratulations!"
"Data!"
"Mario Grand Prix!"
"Okay?"
"Option!"
"Select A Level!"
"Select Map!"
"Select Your Player!"
"Time Trials!"
"Versus?"
