Video: Tron Ni Kobun Promo Reel

From the depths of Nico Nico Douga arises yet another buried treasure: an old promo from Tron Ni Kobun (The Misadventures of Tron Bonne). As with most pre-release promotional video, this footage contains a handful of minor differences from the final build of the game. Can you spot them?

What I got:

-Health bar appears "smoother", less mechanical looking.
-Kobun heads on HUD appear more squared off
- A scene shows Glyde outside of his mech; completely removed from the final release. (Ugly looking character model isn't it?)
-Periodically, you can see "think bubbles" above the Kobun's heads, almost as if they're thinking about food....very strange.
-Footage of the Aurora Stones mission depicts text boxes above items of significance. Removed from final.
-Tron's profile on the Gesellschaft appears less refined when compared to the final.
-The "text sound" is a bit higher in pitch.
-Mission Briefing Room looks a bit different from the final release, dimmer almost.
-Oh, and young Inafune was pretty awesome if I do say so myself.


  1. Man... It brings back memories

    Capcom should just put this game on PSN along with Legends 1 & 2

  2. Thats a cool stufftoy i hope i have 1 or more of those, btw i hope they make a sequel of Tron and a has a demo of MML 3 like they did in the on 1st Tron that has MML 2 demo....

  3. ......

    Hey the interviewer looks cute/pretty :> maybe she ikes megaman too

  4. I know a few :)
    -The house and some movements of the Servbots from 2:29 is different from the final version.
    -The fishes taken by Servbots are darker, they can be seen in 2:54.
    -The cave in 2:58, the Servbots lift the item in the final, but it's invisible in the video. The screen showing the item is also different.
    -The training area from 3:20 is a bit different, and the Servbot that replaces the targets is walking instead of running.
    -Glyde appears outside his robot in the final version, but the camera angle from the video is different.

  5. I know this is old, but I found other 2 differences:
    -The map screen (2:05) is different from the final.
    -The Zenny bar that appears in the top right of the 1st mission is slightly different.
