This standard logo screen was included with all
Pico games from mid-2001 onwards to go with the
console's "Kids Communication Pico" rebrand.

It uses its own SMPS-68k sound driver, separate
from whatever the game itself uses, and some
(but not all) instances of this logo screen
actually contain more sounds than the single
jingle that is normally used.

A bunch of game jingles aside, this includes a
rendition of Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal
that dates back to 1993, created by Masayuki
Nagao as a sample song with the Pico's sound
driver source code. This was based on earlier
demo songs included with similar code for the
Mega Drive, which were done by Tokuhiko Uwabo
and Hiroshi Kubota. Both were involved in the
MD version of Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.
