Gamecube Differences[edit | edit source]

When the game was ported to the Gamecube, slight changes were made.

  • The number of random battles were lowered. A common complaint of the DC version was that you would run into fights every two steps. To accommodate for the lower battle rate, the GC version gives you more EXP.
  • New sidequests that reveal what happened before the story.
  • New characters to run into, such as the assassin Piastol
  • Hunt "Wanted" criminals for bounty.
  • More Discoveries
  • All downloadables in the DC version are packaged into the GC game.
  • New ultimate weapons at your disposal.
  • Find Moonfish throughout the world to gain knowledge & items.
