This is a remake of the original PSone game. While this version still sports the same storyline it features new additions and tweaks to the gameplay to suit the DS.

The player uses the D-pad or the stylus to move their character and using the "X" button to bring up menus while on the world maps, using the "A" button or the stylus pen to select their intended option, while talking is achieved through the "A" button when facing a character. During the battle, the player uses the D-pad to select a certain option of the menu that is present on the screen and using the "A" button to select that option, whether it would be to defend or attack an enemy.

While the original sports a strategy-based style of battle this version instead has the player engage in battle in a 2-D turn-based system. Kururu, the best friend puppet of the main protagonist, is now playable in this version and the soundtrack of the original game has been bundled with the U.S. release.
