Regional Differences

The Japanese version is missing many elements of the World Monster Fishing mode. Indeed, the entire plot of the game is missing, which may suggest that an earlier build was released there.

It's hard to see at first glance, but Jennifer Clam doesn't appear on the game mode screen. There is a dim image of her face winking on the American version, while the Japanese one does not have it. Also, the "World Monster Graphic" magazine from the top-center is also absent.

The cutscenes are skipped. Instead, a screen with the title of the stage the player has chosen is shown right before the target screen.

The game was released with different names according to their region, so each title screen has a different logo design.

The type of unit that appears when displaying the fishing results was also adjusted based on the region.
