Pocky & Rocky was successful enough to get a sequel and thus, Pocky & Rocky 2 was born.

Regional Differences

Copyright Screen

US Europe

Both the US and European versions have a copyright screen that appears at bootup (there is no such screen in the Japanese version), each with different copyright and licensing info. The game's title also gains a trademark symbol in the European version.

Like in the first game, the Japanese version has a fancy animated Natsume logo, while the US version's is static. The European version has an Ocean logo instead, since they published it there.

Each region's title screen has different copyright and licensing info, and the design on the card Pocky is holding has some kanji on it in the Japanese version, and a heart on it elsewhere. Rocky's eyes & Pocky's other hand were also slightly redrawn.

Options Menu

The graphic in the bottom-right corner features Pocky next to a sign in the Japanese version, and Pocky and Rocky together elsewhere. Additionally, the first option is "Rank" in the Japanese version and "Difficulty" elsewhere.

Controller Setup

The controller buttons in the Japanese version are the normal colored versions used in that region, while the US and European (despite actually sharing their button colors with Japan) versions use the US' purple buttons. Oddly, this change was not made for the Y, B, and A graphics at the top.
