BG Planning Sheet linked from Nintendo Europe: https://cdn02.nintendo-europe.com/media/downloads/games_8/wi...

For anyone curious about the few bits of Japanese on those sheets...

On the BG Planning Sheet, 年 月 日 mean Year Month Day -- for indicating the date. 時 分 are Hour Minutes -- for indicating the time. デザイナー means Designer and プログラマー means Programmer.

Oddly, the last page seems to be a mirror image, and it's quite difficult to read the text. However, it appears to be for designing an individual sprite. There is a field labelled キャラクター (Character) along with Date and Memo fields.

I think the last page is for Ditto machines. I remember them being used for schools back in the 80s when all the copies came out in purple ink.
