  • Soccer ball

Just notice that the black pots do not appear in this variant.

Karate Memory #1
As a kid, I dreamed of being a soccer player. My father wouldn't hear of it. "You must master karate before you leave my house!" I still live in the basement.

Skill Star

To collect the first Skill Star, punch the soccer ball at the right moment later in the minigame.

Trivia

  • This is one of the few games to have different rating screens in both versions, except for the Try Again rating, as it stays the same as the original, but with a slight change. It is switched to the right, rather than the left.
  • Like in Rhythm Tengoku, this is the first game you play.
