...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
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 a unique version of Pac-Man Vs..

Unused Sounds

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

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.


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


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.


US International

The US and International versions of the game feature a slightly different intro. In the International version, the Galaxian/Galaga space background periodically speeds up until the end, where it slows back down to it's original speed. The "Namco Museum DS" text also slightly ascends to mimic it's position on the actual title screen. In the US version, the background remains at a fixed speed and the text remains stationary.

Pac Man VS.

In the Japanese and European versions, the Outer Space theme (an arrangement of the main theme from Thunder Ceptor) lasts a bit longer than the one in the US version.
