Versions of Dusty
Note that version Thirteen came out after version Fourteen. Version Thirteen was intended to be released prior to version Fourteen, and was indeed available in Canada in the proper order. For reasons not officially known, the release of version Thirteen was delayed in the United States until the following year. We have opted to retain the originally-intended release numbers.
