Yoshi's Island Theme in Staff Roll

Screenshot Required

In the Staff Roll at the end of Panel de Pon's Story mode, the first few notes of the Yoshi's Island title theme play. This is likely to be a leftover from the U.S. remake of Panel de Pon, Tetris Attack, which also featured a number of Yoshi's Island songs.
