While not released outside Japan, code exists to add the ™ symbol to the introductory Sega logo if the game detects it is being played on a Western system.

Error screen

PuyoPuyo GG ErrorScreen.png

Most Game Gear games that support the Gear-to-Gear Cable display a "CHECK CARTRIDGE" error when the cable is tampered with during a 2-player game. Puyo Puyo, and by extension Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, displays a unique error screen with graphics not seen anywhere else in the game. To view it in an emulator, set memory address D401 to any value higher than 3 in a memory editor while in the main menu, then press  START . After a few seconds, the game will reset itself.

The graphics used for this screen are taken from the Mega Drive version's title screen.
