This is a list of pre-release and unused content for the game Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.
Press kit material
Debug menu & unused room
Using the Action Replay code 94000130-fffa0000 + 1205e768-0000000c + 1205ef50-0000000c + d2000000-00000000, you can access a debug menu. Hold Select + A while loading your save. One of the selectable rooms will have an unused Yoshi Egg, and an unused chat bubble with a heart bubble.
An enemy name in the ROM, Scoot Bloop, was unused. In all versions of the game excluding the Spanish release and South Korean release, it has been translated. Sprites of this "Scoot Bloop" have recently been ripped from the game and its unused data was discovered . Apparently, Scoot Bloops attacked by ramming into the player. Due to the data being unfinished, battling them in-game and letting them attack will cause a Scoot Bloop to attack and not return, or freeze the game.
Although the Japanese version of this game only gives players the option to play in Japanese, it actually contains at least a partial script in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish as well. These often differ from what would eventually be released in the European version of the game. A list of changes can be found below.
