If I remember right I read somewhere and it was probably in the Yahoo auction where I got the cart from, that there were only 3000 or so made and it was given to people who did some kind of travel agency/holiday course.

Ok michal99, thank you. I'll keep it as x144. However my doubt remains, because as I said in the previous discussion, the promo took place in 2007, while x144 displays 2008 at titlescreen, and supplied boxart by HR (don't know about yours) didn't match boxart in the promo flyer by ANA.

I mean, I still doubt whether an additional, not yet in DAT, true promo exist (from 2007, limited release), that matches boxart in the flyer, current x144 being a mass produced ANA edition after the promo (2008).

Have a look tomorrow, but I think my box doesn't have EAN as commercial game. And So far I saw 3 of these in past 3 year on Yahoo japan so it's deffinately not normal release. I'll make a picture of the box for you.

I update the redump with pictures and you can see there's no EAN and it's says in Japanies that is not for resale and also in english that it's not for resale.
And yes the box is 2007 and ingame 2008, but they have same serial so I guess it was delayed or they forget to change the box date or something.
Also the SAVE type is EEPROM 521K (64KByte) and not 8192.

Just notice there's also screen shot of the title screen in the manual and it shows c2007 Spike All Rights... So My guess is that the manual and cover are from the full game originaly.

Sorry for the spam here, but if anyone can read Japanies there's just one auction with a letter so that could bring some light how exactly or for what you can get the game. http://page4.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/d119858933

According to your boxart, definitely current ANA release stays as x144.

That suggests me though that an additional ANA release could exist indeed. Full game (main DAT) titlescreen is c2006, not c2007.

Here is the official link to ANA flyer for 2007 promo:
