  • arcade air bike riding mission is introduced;
  • aiming system is now 360 degrees;
  • protagonist receives the experience for his actions to increase the character's level;
  • level provides the points to improve one of three skills such as aiming, power, and vitality;
  • 8 upgrades for each of 6 character's abilities are scattered on the levels;
  • Virtual Reality missions allow the protagonist to master his combat techniques and get an extra experience;
  • certain number of Morph Eyes should be eliminated on each level to gain a skill point;
  • hand-drawn art from the original has been redrawn as 2.5D;
