Major Differences

The European version is based on an earlier build of the game and has various differences to it. The North American version is the latest of the three and fixed some glitches. The Japanese version is in between the two and is also the preferred version, as the Portal Items glitch wasn't patched and Zeffa can be called from the top of the Wind Palace unlike the European version.
