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.

Every world and level in this section follows the prototype's numbering scheme, unless otherwise specified. All comparisons use the first revision of the final Japanese version as a reference.

The prototype icon border is noticeably thicker and consists of three sections, causing the icon artwork to be just 18×18 instead of the final's 22×22. The total size is 24×24 in both versions.

Save Files

The icons displayed for the save files had only minor changes between here and the final version. Note that the borders are included here due to the text outline being part of them.
