I downloaded the Japanese version of PSIII, and I've been playing the English a few days before which I also downloaded (not exactly the same as playing it on a consple, but still fun). There are two noticeable differences, one which I already knew about:

In the English version of the game, on the overworld, only clouds scroll. In the Japanese version, the ground scrolls too. In dungeons, the backgrounds also scroll. This is mentioned at the cutting room floor: https://tcrf.net/Phantasy_Star_III:_Gen ... ifferences

The other difference is that in the English version of the game, when a character is poisoned it shows a P symbol next to their name. In the Japanese version, their HP is replaced with a P symbol, and this makes poison even more threatening.

I think there are a few other differences too, but I can't confirm them. If you do know any, feel free to tell them here.

I knew about the scrolling thing, but I wish I knew what part of PS3 controls the scrolling - because that would be something I'd love to edit if I knew the right place in the disasm to target.

The English version I also believe has some localization changes, such as when the game is explaining the link between PSII and PSIII.

I just found out three more differences:

The Twistbot, Swivlbot, and Rotabot enemies are in the Japanese version, the Twistbot appearing in the Rebel Cave and Mystoke, the Swivlbot appearing in Mystoke, and the Rotabot appearing in Mystoke and Agoe-Shusoran's Island. The Roboman only appears in the Western Cave, and the Mechman only appears on the Agoe-Shusoran Island, and the Droidman ...this may come as a suprise, but...

It turns out the Droidman is absent from the Japanese game, and was only added in the US/EU release of the game. Pretty interesting.

Another change is that when you talk to Lena after beating the Lyle, the guard that blocked your way back will still be there, and you'll have to exist the castle to get him away.

The other change is that in Aquatica, the plankwalk thing that allows Wren to turn into an Aquaskimmer is in a different position on Sage Isle, it's to the west now. On the island with the Layan temple leading to Draconia, the plankwalk is positioned to the west coast, and not north of the coast.
