39) NHL All-Star "Match Des Etoiles" Hockey '95
This game is the only cardboard Canadian release. It came out much later than all of the other Canadian releases and is a bit different. I count it as part of the Canadian set because of the English/French text and that there are two separate releases (US release and this "Canadian" release). The release is different because it doesn't use the 69044 UPC and instead has a 10086 UPC used typically for US releases.
It turns out I've sold my US release of this game. So like with Moonwalker, I'll have to first showcase the US release using pictures from eBay.

For some reason, this barcode sticker was added. This is not the typical US barcode or Canadian barcode (at least not the one used for early releases). Its also odd because the Canadian release already has a barcode on its side/spine.
Left side/spine of Canadian release. Notice there is no French text and no barcode. The box has a cardboard hangtab.
Right side/spine of Canadian release. French text and UPC barcode.
I went ahead and opened up one of the two sealed copies I had:
40) Phantasy Star II
Left: US release; Right: Canadian release
The covers are just about identical. The only minor difference is the Sega Genesis logo at the top. On the Canadian release the words "16-Bit Cartridge" have been added to the logo.
Even the backs are nearly the same. Phantasy Star II is one of the toughest Canadian releases to spot or find. The Canadian release doesn't have the Sega of America text and it doesn't have the "1 Player" logo.

Small difference in the spines. No trademark on the spine for the Canadian release. Also has the different Genesis logo
What's even more tricky is that both the US release and the Canadian release have vertical "US-style" manuals.

Backs of the manuals. No reference to Sega of America on the Canadian manual. The US manual is copyright 1989 and the Canadian manual is copyright 1990

41) Phantasy Star III
I haven't yet acquired the Canadian release of this game to do a side-by-side comparison with the US release
