Of course, everyone here knows that the Famicom disk game Doki Doki Panic was released here in the US in cart format as SMB 2. However, I noticed something interesting in the DDP instruction manual the other day. There's a sticker showing Mario and the young man from DDP shaking hands. I realize it's just meant to show the partnership between Nintendo and Fuji TV for DDP, but it does seem like a bit of foreshadowing regarding the release of SMB 2 in the US later on.
Well, at least to me it does. It's just one of those interesting coincidences, I guess.
