Unused Music

The dummy track for missing audio files appears to be a snippet of the song Celebration by Kool & The Gang in the Xbox version of the game.

Developer Message

Present at 17E348 in boot.dol in the GameCube version:


This message appears to be printed when something in the sound system goes wrong.

Regional Differences


To do:
-Document other difficulty changes. Hard has to do more than just hide enemy paths and change one setpiece.
-Rip and upload the High-Tech boss's voice clips.
International Japanese (Normal) Japanese (Hard)

The Japanese version added a difficulty setting. On Normal, enemy paths are darkened to make them easier to read. Hard is nearly identical to the international versions' lone difficulty setting, but retains some alterations made on Easy/Normal and also speeds up some level elements, such as the spider in Rainforest level 2, beyond the speed they have in international versions.

The High-Tech boss has voice clips for each of their attacks. In the international versions, they are completely silent.


The Japanese version altered the title screen music to omit the rap verse. The corresponding part of the song is completely removed, with the song looping back to the start.

International Japanese

The Japanese version's options menu includes the aforementioned difficulty setting, and lets you set starting lives anywhere from 1 to 15. The international versions only offer 3, 5, and 7 as starting lives. The Frogger background is also much more opaque.
