The main story line in this version remains unchanged for the most part; however, many of the dialogues have been altered, and several characters modified and/or presented in a different way - which, naturally, also has an impact on the story. For example, a cut scene early in the game showed Linda and Ken kissing in the original version; in the remake, Linda punches him instead.
All the cut scenes have been re-done from scratch. Instead of the simple animated scenes of the original the remake features full-motion anime-style movies. The change is more than just technical, as illustrated by the example above.
In-game graphics have received a significant overhaul and are more detailed. Battle graphics in particular have been enhanced; in the original version, there were no backgrounds behind the enemy pictures; in this release, battle screens are accompanied by backgrounds reflecting the scenery the battle takes place in.
Gameplay changes were also made. In addition to mission objectives (which represented difficulty levels in the earlier version), Linda³ Again features four parallel levels of difficulty, involving battles against animals and their collection. Difficulty of the battles themselves was also re-done in many areas; different and/or additional enemies are seen wandering in places populated by other creatures in the original release.
