European Versions

Philips was apparently unwilling to spend the money to "localize" The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt when the company released Videopac 46 in Europe. Wall Street sets were imported as-is from the U.S. and released with almost no changes. The only difference was the inclusion of a small color pamphlet with "Videopac 46" on the cover. Each of this booklet's 10 pages contained a list of terms translated into a different language. This enabled Philips to avoid making costly translations to the in-game text. The German release of Wall Street contains an even cheaper, black-and-white translation insert.

The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt was released in Brazil as simply Wall Street. The contents of the set are similar to the American version, except that the manual is in Portuguese, the token compartment lid doesn't have a gold emblem, and the record pad covers say "Carteira de Investimentos" instead of "Investment Record." The set also includes a small slip of paper outlining a guarantee (Garantia) of quality. Like the other Brazilian Master Strategy games, Wall Street originally came packaged in a corrugated shipping box.
