  3. Yeah apparently there are some differences significant only if you own Japanese and USA versions EU I think maybe just dialogue they censored trophies in the Japanese version and back when it came out they censored mr game and watch.

Accepted Answer

  1. There is no actual difference between the versions based on the region you buy. Unsure who told you that but the games are the exact same in all regions.

  2. That's not what I heard on youtube and they showed the differences between Japanese and American and wondering other differences in the USA Japanese and EU and apparently the voices are different and dialogue is different when engaging with some kind of partner that gives you info about your teammate or opponent, and thus wondering what more differences there are from EU to USA appart from the dialogue, and the Japanese version also has a character called mr game and watch that's not in the USA release, so I'm baffled

  3. Your source is false, as Mr. Game & Watch exists in all versions of the game.

  6. When the game was Originally released in USA and EU MR game man Watch wasn't available and youtube were saying back then it was censored out of the game, perhaps they were talking about the naming they called him something else perhaps in the USA release?

  7. Could you post your sources here ?

    Mr. Game & Watch caused a controversy because he was depicted with a feather on his head during his Forward Smash, apparently referring to Native Americans. The feather was removed but Mr. Game & Watch has never been not playable.

    Voices change based on the game's language which can be modified at any moment from the game's settings.

  8. It´s true, a Mr Game & Watch animation was censored, but not the whole character in itself, just the animation was changed at launch, but that goes for every version of the game.

  1. In Asian territories, R.O.B.'s name is "Robot", and his default costume is red and white to match the Famicom. In other versions, his default costume is colored in shades of grey to match the NES. All that's changed around is the order of the costumes though, as he still has the same eight costumes in every region. (So the grey one is still available to use in Asian territories, and the red and white one is still in other versions as well.)

    Some character names are changed in different languages. For example, English names of Bowser, Jigglypuff, or Mega Man will respectively be Koopa, Purin, or Rockman in Japanese. You can still see these differences in fighter and boss names by switching the language setting in-game. Similarly, in-game voices will be tied to the language profile selected. Characters such as Mewtwo and Hero will have extra voice lines if the language is set to Japanese. (All characters won't have voices for all languages, however. For example, Cloud and Sephiroth will speak in Japanese no matter which language setting you play the game in.)

    Some of the English names and even voices differ between the US and EU versions of the game. Because these differences are region-specific, these differences can NOT be seen by switching your game's language profile. For example, one character is named "Duck Hunt" in the US release and "Duck Hunt Duo" in the EU release. The Palutena's Guidance segment referring to the character by name also lampshades this, with the EU version saying that since there is also a shooter behind the screen in addition to the dog and duck, they're really more of a trio. Wii Fit Trainer will have a different accent depending on the region of the game as well. There are also some differences in the titles given to characters in the Boxing Ring stage. Some other text may also be changed, such as text referring to game titles which differs between regions.

    All of these differences between versions are completely aesthetic, and do not alter gameplay whatsoever. You can play the game from whichever region you prefer, and you will still be able to play with people from all around the world. I hope this answer helps!

  2. There is a difference in game version you only need to check youtube to see the changes, USA to Japan to EU version there are slight differences and typically Japanese version has censored in game items alternate dialogue to the USA and EU versions and the same with EU version to USA has an altered dialogue between each other hope this helps.

  3. Want to note the dialogue is in game text

  4. The only "alterations" are game titles due to them being called different things in different regions (Starwing in EU instead of Starfox in US, Lylatwars instead of Starfox 64, etc.) because of trademark issues that caused those games to need a title change, not because of some wacky censorship agenda you choose to believe in. Please stop saying words.

  6. That might have been true in previous entries in the series, but in Ultimate all versions are censored equally. The differences in dialogue and text are probably linked with the language of the game, but since all versions can be set to all languages which version you get shouldn't matter.
