Regional Differences

The Japanese version has differences from international versions.

  • An additional multiplayer "Party Mode".
  • More animated title logo. HAL Laboratory's name isn't shortened.
  • Font and menu changes, such as a larger English alphabet and a background graphic for the "How many players?" message.
  • The game over screen.
