This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Hmmm...
To do:
More regional differences.

Namco Museum DS is another one of the many games in the Namco Museum series, with 7 games you've probably already seen time and time again, and Pac-Man VS..

Unused Sounds

Two voice clips from Wonder Momo, found in the intro's sound bank.

Also present in the same sound bank is the "Blast Off !" voice clip from Bosconian. While it is used in the intro sequence as an easter egg in the scene where a Fygar uses its fire breath on Goro and a Toroid unit (from Mappy and Xevious respectively), it is a very rare easter egg that only plays on random occasions.

Unused Graphics

Pac-Man VS.

NMDS PMVS Unused Clyde.gif

The graphics for the upper part of the title screen features sprites for Clyde, and while they're used (in a way), they aren't seen properly, as they always use the texture for the glowing sphere behind the logo (and the same applies for the rest of the characters shown there). It's possible that he was originally going to be the fourth ghost instead of Common, the green ghost from Pac-Mania.

NMDS Unused Wi-Fi Graphics.png

Remnants of a planned (possibly Japan-only) Wi-Fi feature can be found in the ROM. There's also sprites of a question mark and exclamation point, and a duplicate of one of Pac-Man's sprites from the menus. It is unknown what the three were supposed to be used for.

Main

NMDS Unused Pooka Sprites.png

The intro graphics contain sprites for a Pooka being inflated, and eventually becoming twice its original size. It's possible that it was initially used as a placeholder in the Dig Dug II part of the intro sequence before Pac-Man took its place.

Regional Differences

Logos

International Japan
NMDS-LogosINT.png NMDS-LogosJP.png

The Namco logo appears on the bottom screen instead of the "Licensed by Nintendo" text in the Japanese version.

Intro

US International

The scrolling background in the intro goes faster between the parts of the intro and the title name moves up to the mid-top before the background returns to its normal position in the Japanese and European versions. The differences in the intro were not seen in the US version.
