The new high-speed mode will allow the player to speed up the game to 1.5x or 2x the regular speed of the game, and can be done on the go. Along with the mentioned features, the game will also feature new visuals for the character portraits, called “Refined version” and an option to change on the go between the new visuals and the original PSP or “Classic version”. The new sound options allow the player to change between the soundtrack for the original PC rerelease of 2012, the original PC-8801 soundtrack, and the X68000 soundtrack.
