Truncated Menu Music/Early Remix

The song played in the main menu is what appears to be an instrumental of an early Electro Extended remix of Un-gravitify. The song normally loops, but if the looping is disabled through a specialized audio player capable of playing ADX files (like foobar2000), the song can be heard in full, with a proper ending. Disappointingly, the instrumental of Catch Me If You Can heard in the Options menu simply cuts off if looping is disabled and has no ending to speak of.

Version Differences

Although the game was released only for Wii in Japan, the US PS2 version's language selection includes both Japanese text and audio. The European PS2 version removes these options.
