Xenosaga Episode I Reloaded is a Japan-exclusive re-release of Xenosaga Episode I - Der Wille zur Macht for the PlayStation 2. It notably includes the English voice acting from the North American release of the original game, along with a few other features.
List of changes
While the core game is the same and the story is unchanged, there are some changes compared to the original version. Listed here are changes that are not simply minor bug fixes.
- The game now features English voices rather than the original Japanese ones. This is a full replacement - no option to switch to Japanese voices is available.
- A slightly older version of the dub is seemingly used in Reloaded, as some takes or lines are slightly different to the final English release. A notable example is that Realians are inconsistently referred to as "Synths".
- Two new outfits are obtainable: an Archetype outfit for KOS-MOS, and a Kirschwasser outfit for MOMO.
- A cutscene viewer can be accessed from the main menu, allowing the player to rewatch cutscenes they have viewed on their current save file. If the player has an original Episode I save file, they may load that to access the cutscene viewer.
Additionally, the game comes with a bonus DVD featuring a trailer for Xenosaga Episode II.
