A few unused themes.

Loosely based on the TV series of the same name, both the game and anime bombed horribly outside Japan.

Regional Differences

In the Japanese release, the game featured an e-Reader option allowing players to unlock characters/vehicles, e-Reader+ Cup courses and staff ghost challenges in the game using special e-Reader cards. Due to low e-Reader sales in the US, this feature was removed in the international release. A rom hack exists that re-adds all of the missing content to all versions of the game.

"Press Start Button" has been shortened to "Press Start", and the logo was made brighter.

e-Reader Machines

There were a total of 10 Machine Cards, 2 of which are limited edition Bandai Carddass cards. Six of them can be unlocked in-game, but four of them are exclusive to the e-Reader cards. When the game was brought overseas, these vehicles were made unlockable through in-game means.

Card e-Reader+ Cup Courses

There were a total of 20 Course Cards, 4 of which are limited edition Bandai Carddass cards. Only five can be saved onto the game at a time. Since the e-Reader cards were never released internationally, neither the e-Reader+ Cup nor any of the courses within made it into the game.

Staff Ghost Challenges

There were a total of 20 Challenge Cards, 4 of which were limited edition Bandai Carddass cards. Each card contains a game staff record on one of five courses and with one of five vehicles, as well as replay data with overlaid button inputs, showing exactly what the player did to get their record time. Once again, all of these were left out of the international releases of the game.

Unused Text

At 542BF4 (US version) is a leftover phrase.

Download e-Reader card data.

While this text is not in the EU version, both versions have related "Card e-Reader+ Cup" and "Card Course" graphics.

Unused Courses

The game has remnants of additional courses. To access them, enter the following Code Breaker codes, then choose either Time Attack or Training (which can be unlocked via Action Replay code 5742F0F9 28626452, if they aren't already) and press Select at the Course Select screen. The course map will change to the chosen course's to verify the selection.

At a glance, the names might suggest that these tracks were meant to be more replicas of classic F-Zero tracks. However, it's more likely that the tracks were actually meant to be Expert Class variants of the original eight tracks, as the harder tracks in this game are all suffixed with a "II" to indicate a variant.

Unfortunately, "Mute City II" seems to be the only track that had been altered in this fashion – though, the alterations are more in line with the original game's third Mute City track than the second.

It's also worth noting that there was never a "Port Town III" in any game, and both the normal "White Land II" and the unused "White Land II" share the same name. (The unused variant should be "White Land III," if "Port Town III" is any indication.)
