- Although the file itself uses the term "Rookie Mode", its inclusion in the game predates Rookie Mode, originally being obtained on Easy Mode. As such, the file can be found in every version of the game that supports Easy Mode.
- The original Japanese script implies that the file is for "Rookie" players instead of those playing on a "Rookie Mode".
