Gameplay Differences

Skipping the Intro

On the international versions, you can press Start during the beginning cutscene in order to skip directly to gameplay. The Japanese version doesn't have this feature so players have to sit through the whole intro cinematics.

Item Locations

The Japanese version generally contains many more item locations compared to the international versions. Some examples:
