Version Differences: Area Voice

In the European version, the narrator from the Intro returns to announce two area names when moving to and from the Impact Crater:

It turns out that these narrations are from the Japanese version of the game. However, in the Japanese version, "Tallon Overworld" and "Impact Crater" are not spoken when taking the "elevator" to and from the final area in the game. Instead, the Japanese names of all of the areas in the game are spoken when loading a saved game, and only when loading a saved game. This explains why only Tallon Overworld and Impact Crater were used in the European version, and only in such a limited fashion.
