I have just recently got hold of a Japanese copy of the original GameBoy Tetris. To my great disappointment, it didn't have the Korobeiniki-music as Type A bgm so I did some googling.
Can't be that I'm buying a copy of 1989 Tetris only to play it with this particular BGM and even the Tetris of all Tetrisses doesn't have it.
Turns out Korobeiniki was featured on later versions in Japan and apparently the song that's Type A in my version of Tetris is commonly being referred to as "Menuett" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minuet).
So, is there a way to tell those two cartridges/boxes apart? Now that I've found out, I'm of course looking for a Korobeiniki-copy of the game while appreciating the obscurity status of my (apparently) super-early NON-Korobeiniki Tetris.
I guess it didn't get a different serial or cover since all of those on Yahoo look the same, although there's one advertised as "different music version".
What's rarer and/or more valuable, the version with or the one without Korobeiniki?
