Unused Playable Characters
There is data present that proves Chet, Sass's doubles partner in the Island Open, was to be a playable character. However, his programming is incomplete. He appears in the match as a distorted, colored square, and said square actually has Clay's sprite present. Also, Chet can't hit the ball far at all. Even with a "NICE!" shot, it still only moves forward a few inches. As a result, Chet is completely unusable. Also, the only unused graphic associated with this is his player icon.
There are also two other player slots, possibly for two of the other three Island Open players that can't be unlocked. The slots are labeled "08" and "47", respectively. Their icons look like placeholders, and their playing is the same as Chet's.
The two main characters are named Clay and Ace in the US version and Max and Tina in the European version.
In addition, the US version allows you to select other European languages in the options menu.
