- Name changes for locations and terms in the game: "Lakrika" is renamed "Ancheim", "Nadarakes" is renamed "Harena", "Flowell" is renamed "Florem", "Superstar" is renamed "Performer", and "shrine maiden" is renamed "vestal".
- Name changes for characters in the game: "Bearing Out" is renamed "Barras Lehr", "Anazel D" is renamed "Alternis Dim", "Malme Konda Manmatt VIII" is renamed "Eloch Quentis Khamer VIII", "Nikosogi Boritori" is renamed "Erutus Profiteur", "Ikuma Najitt" is renamed "Ciggma Khint", "Pudding à la Mode" is renamed "Praline à la Mode", "Ratz" is renamed "Zatz", and "Okae Lee" is renamed "Mahzer Lee". In most cases, this is to retain the puns and wordplays used in the Japanese names.
- Alterations are made to the Bravo Bikini for Edea and the Vampire outfits for Agnès and Edea to appear less revealing.
- Alternate costumes that were originally Japanese DLC (Plain Tunic, Onion Shirt, Melodist's Shirt, Knight Tunic, and Edea's Garb) are available as in-game rewards from the Norende Village reconstruction.
- Omission of the alternate costumes created for For the Sequel (Dimensional Officer, Bravo Bunny, Wakoku Warrior Shippujinrai, and Military Cadet-in). The data for these costumes remain on the cartridge, but the items are not acquirable by legitimate means.
