** The {{PS2}} release: complete overhaul with 3D graphics, expanded background on some characters, allowing four characters in the same party instead of just three, new monsters to fight and recruit, and the addition of a local trinkets museum where the player has to collect local specialties from all around the world, return the items back to ''Yuujii'', and receive rewards for them.
** The NintendoDS release: it got all extras from the {{PS2}} version minus the complete 3D graphics engine, but the most valuable addition was the introduction of Debora, a new possible bride for the hero.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** The "Talk" feature in the DS version. ''Every'' human character has something unique to say for each NPC you talk to or after each plot event. This leads to some great CharacterDevelopment, which was sorely lacking in the original.
** At the beginning of the game, the hero's parents debate over what to name him; Pankraz will suggest naming him Madason -- for son of Mada, while Mada will end up choosing [[HelloInsertNameHere whatever you put down yourself]]. If you anticipate Pankraz, however, and name the hero Madason yourself, Pankraz will suggest [[VideoGame/DragonQuestIII Erdrick]] instead.
