The SNES counterpart to the last NES game released in America, this version features a pretty cute Puyo Puyo-esque VS COM story mode. It's also got the current CEO of Retro Studios voicing a green Toad, so that's something.

For some odd reason, this version never released in Japan outside of the Satellaview (and even those versions cut or change content, more on that below) and has yet to be rereleased anywhere.

Unused Graphics

*blink*Arrr!Oh.Blah!AAAAAAAAAAMmmmff...BOPUggh...*rotates*Hey!D'oh!*almost blinks*

When you defeat an opponent, they turn into a frame of their heads. However, each one has an unused extra frame.

Version Differences

To do:
There's much more to cover. Compare each week's Futatabi version, as well as Event Ver. 1 and Event Ver. 2. With the amount of differences, this probably should become a subpage once complete.

This game was released exclusively for the Satellaview in Japan, and it was broadcast in multiple forms with a number of surprising major changes. The Event and Bakushou (not publicly dumped) versions feature a Japanese comedy duo, who've been added to the title screen and throughout the game.

A later Futatabi version drops the celebrity tie-in, bringing the game closer to its original form.

The Event and Bakushou (not shown) title screens add Toad, the guest stars, and the Satellaview mascot. They also feature taller copyright text and fix the original game's rather odd ground shadows. Version 2 additionally moves Toad slightly and removes the cloud behind the "Ver." text. The Futatabi version opts for a completely different, yet familiar image; namely the artwork featured on the game's packaging (this art was used for every retail NES and SNES release, including the Famicom version).

Each Satellaview version features different game modes. The Round Game and Time Race icons were redrawn to give Toad a mouth, and they remembered to update the Option icon to match the Super Famicom's controller. The logo on the controller also has slight differences between the European and Japanese releases.

To do:
Some of the opponents are fought in different locations.
US/EU Futatabi
Wario's Woods VS mode 1.png Wario no Mori - Futatabi (Japan) (5-26) VS mode 2.png

The VS COM mode in Futatabi conspicuously omits the cutscene dialogue (Toad and his foes just stare at each other, blinking).

US/EU Futatabi

The mode's results screen also removes the name labels. Oddly, this means the VS COM opponents (besides Wario) went unnamed in Japan.

The event versions feature the celebrity tie-in, of course. Despite the rest of Futatabi hewing closer to the international release, Birdo is still absent, replaced by the Satellaview's female avatar.
