Trivia

1001 Video Games

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Kasan

Just a little goof - Kasan's voice can be heard over the radio in some of the earlier missions before she has joined the team

Nintendo 64 version

The Nintendo version launches with a multi-million Dollar TV-campaign and is the first game to utilize the new 4 Meg expansion Pak for hi-resolution graphics.

In the N64 version of the game, entering a certain code allows you to play a secret level in a AT-ST. You can use the same code on the pc version, but you'll find that no secret level appears, instead you can play almost all the regular missions with an AT-ST. Also the N64 version had the Naboo Starfighter, the Millenium Falcon and the TIE Interceptor available from day one, though only accessible through cheat codes.

Patch

Shortly after the release of Phantom Menace, LucasArts released a patch to allow use of the Naboo Starfighter in completed missions. The sleek, almost pretty starfighter is VERY fast with a complement of powerful lasers.

Secret levels

There are three secret levels in both versions of the game: Beggars Canyon, Death Star Trench Run, and Hoth Battle.
