The following material is added in the Nintendo 3DS remake including:

  • A book in the inn describing the blue treasure chests on the overworld and their ability to respawn.
  • Several new story elements from Kalderasha such as:
    • A cutscene showing Dhoulmagus as the apprentice of Rylus and the events leading to him stealing the scepter from Trodain, then murdering the first of the Seven Sages.
    • A prompt for the party to return to the ruins of previous destination, pointing them to a new quest.


  • When King Trode is accused of being a monster, if the Hero talks to the barkeep, he well say that he's been in the business long enough to know that's probably false, referencing the Aesop Fable of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, where the boy (who was a teenager like the kid who ran into the bar) ran through the streets crying that a wolf was "In the city walls" (quoting the game, not the fable).
