Are you a bad enough dude to
Tomodachi Life is the quirky sequel to Nintendo's already weird take on the life simulation genre.

Localization can be a lengthy job.
Located in message/Song/Song_xx_LZ.bin/ArcBase (replace xx with the corresponding Language Code) are lyrics for the Enka song, which was removed from all International releases of the game. It's unknown if there were ever any plans to localize the song for a broader audience or if these are placeholders.

Located in sound/clone_sound.bcsar are BGM_SONG_ENKA_CLICK.bcseq and BGM_SONG_ENKA.bcseq – the music sequence files for the Enka song, which is exclusive to the Japanese version of the game. Sadly, the sequences appear to have been blanked out from both files in the international versions of the game, but the instrumentation is still intact in the BANK_ENKA.cbnk file.
Located in model/sample_TestCube_LZ.bin is... How surprising, an untextured cube! Likely a leftover example from the SDK.
In model/sample_DebugTextureRender_LZ.bin, this flat model with a weird texture applied over it can be found. Likely also from the SDK.
There are more in-game placeholder graphics.
The banner data for the original Japanese release of the game contains placeholders for localized versions of the game's logo.
While technically used, these placeholder logos can only be seen by trying to play the Japanese version of the game on a modded out-of-region console.
Internal Project Name
The game's internal project name is "clone", according to the sound/clone_sound.bcsar archive and many of the sound files contained within.
Having more detail is always a good thing.
Specifically: What was changed between versions 1.0 and 1.1?
Document the demo versions.
Version 1.1 was released as a day-one patch for the US and EU versions.
The Europe-exclusive version 2.0 ‒ released October 16, 2015 ‒ added the option to play the game in Dutch.
