The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Hiroko Moriguchi's Rushing Wind Quiz!' (Hiroko Moriguchi is the hostess' name). 'Hyuu-hyuu' is Japanese onomatopoeia for rushing wind.
The attract mode intro pretty much reproduces the intro format of Japanese broadcast television shows exactly, right down to having a screen for the sponsor's name (Taito, in this case) written underneath the word 'Teikyou' (all in white text) while an announcer says 'Kono bangumi wa Taito no teikyou de okurishimasu' which translates to 'This program is brought to you by the sponsorship of Taito'. Replace the word 'Taito' with the name of any other company and you have a phrase (or some variation of it) and text that is uttered and shown at the top of every single Japanese TV show broadcast.
Hiroko Moriguchi is a pop singer and TV personality.
