Localisation comparisons

For unknown reasons, Sonic 3D uses the subtitle Blast in NTSC regions, and Flickies' Island in PAL. On the Mega Drive, the ROM is the same, with change only taking place when the localised machine is detected.

Regarding the Sega Saturn version, the title is not tied to television standards, but more the region the game was sold in. The NTSC-U version uses the Blast subtitle, while the PAL and NTSC-J versions use Flickies' Island.

For some odd reason, the Pink Flicky CGI render differs slightly between the Blast and Flickies' Island versions. The NTSC-J version also readjusts the artwork centering and extends the "Press Start" text into "Press Start Button".
