Mischief Makers is a game that demonstrates very well that the Nintendo 64 needn't be all about 3D, and sidescrollers can still be amazing. As long as there's something to shake, that is.

Unused Graphics

Hmmm...
To do:
Unused sprites for Marina.

Marina and Theo

Regional Differences

Opening

Japan International
MischiefMakers-Enixlogo.pngMischiefMakers-Treasurelogo.png MischiefMakers-N64Logo.pngMischiefMakers-Enixlogo.pngMischiefMakers-Treasurelogo.png

The international versions show the Nintendo 64 logo before the Enix logo, which is absent from the Japanese version.

Japan International
MischiefMakers-japantitle.png MischiefMakers-ustitle.png

In the opening sequence for the Japanese version, when the Clancers are thrown away from the screen, the characters in the logo appear as the boulders scatter, arriving one at a time and rotating in place. Rather than recreate this for the English title, the developers simply removed the letters, leaving just the blue background as the boulders fall away.

Title Screen

Japan International
Mischiefmakers-titleJP.png Mischiefmakers-title.png

The Japanese logo has a bit of text reading ゆけゆけ!! ("Yuke Yuke!!") being trailed by a projectile, which flies in from the right a moment after the title screen is displayed, accompanied by a sound effect. The international versions additionally had the copyright line reworked.

Stages

In the Japanese version, there's several instances of text that appears over certain NPCs' heads that is not present in international versions.

Hmmm...
To do:
There are a lot more than just these 2 lines. document and translate them.
Japan International
Mischiefmakers-ClanceyJP.png Mischiefmakers-ClanceyUS.png

The first Clancer in the first stage says "コッチだよ", meaning "This way!" when he's waiting for you to follow him.

Japan International
Mischiefmakers-ClanceyJP2.png Mischiefmakers-Clancey2.png

When the aforementioned Clancer in the first stage is done leading you, he says "アッチだよ", meaning "That way!"

Hmmm...
To do:
Screenshots and translations.

Shaking a weapon has Marina describe the change.

"3 Clancer Kids" and "7 Clancer kids" have similar speech bubbles for the children and husband.

The boss of World 2 gives multiple texts above his head during each of his attacks.

The frog boss has one just before it summons the "thunder god."
