Mega Drive version (2019)

International

All regional variants of the Mega Drive Mini contain two seperate ROMs for Tetris: a Japanese ROM used for the Japanese, Chinese and Korean languages, and an International ROM for all other languages. The International ROM disables the How to Play demo, and as a result the copyright notices cut straight to the high score table.
