The Japanese version changed the animation for the SEGA logo. The Japanese version also plays a short jingle, whilst the international versions just has engine noise.

General Differences

  • The game's title call is different in the Japanese version.
International Japan
  • A list was added of everyone's position given after finishing a race, a feature absent in the international releases.
  • The ability to save best records was also implemented.
  • The player earns a medal for finishing in 1st place in a race in easy mode. In the international versions, you get nothing.


In the international versions, even if you finish all the tracks in 1st place, you will not get the credits if playing on hard or the messages to finish the game with a higher difficulty if playing in Easy/Normal. The game does keep all your scores and unlocks mirror mode as long as you don't turn off the game, but the ending never triggers, probably because the international versions lack a battery save option.
