As explained by JAST USA this new release of The Song of Saya includes a major technical update that improves on the fidelity of the visual novel experience. In this case the game runs on a new engine that adds additional resolution and improved visuals, additionally all of the original illustrations for the game were digitally re-scanned in order to delivery the higher resolution one would expected from newer visual novels releases.

The games visual styles are not the only improvement either as the original English text localisation has also been polished by the original translator as well, making the already great localization even better. The Steam version of The Song of Saya will also be ‘toned down’ compared to the uncut version on the JAST USA Store; this is due to the sexual themes featured within the game.
