In America it came with R:Racing Evolution or Pac Man World, but I don't know why we were denied that simple pleasure.
In America it came free with R: Racing Evolution, the player's choice version of Pac-Man World 2, and I-Ninja. That is, it was said to come with I-Ninja, but I never saw any copies of the game that had it. And of the three, it was the only one I actually wanted. I eventually just got Pac-Man World 2, which I didn't really like (should've gotton R: Racing Evolution). Oh and I don't know if you know this or not, but in America anyway, the game was produced by Namco, not Nintendo. That's what NOA is saying anyway, according to their website: www.nintendo.com/gamemini?gameid=m-Game-0000-1844 Wouldn't that make it a Namco promotional release and not a Nintendo promotional release? Although they do have Mario as the announcer. I haven't seen (or heard in this case) him call the shots since he was the ref in Punch-Out!!. Although, all he really does is state the obvious. "Pac-Man ate a Power Pellet!" "Ghost ate a fruit."
Nintendo developed the game and Namco published it. It is a Namco release as well, but the very fact that Nintendo developed it means it gets covered.
Oh whoops, you're right, my mistake! I actually just relized what I was typing last night. Well, that's my lesson learned: Never try to make a serious post after 11:00 at night when you had given up sleep the previous night to play Metroid Prime.
