Really that's it? Doesn't really make a difference though. But thank you version 1.04. Thank you for reminding me of how Kairi was badly handle in the ending.

There's GOTTA be an important difference. I guess there is; sOmEtHiNg went wrong. But the big question I have is: what??

If I'm not mistaken what they added to the scene is a very deliberate "drop" sound effect from DDD. A very prolonged one. Are they trying to tell us that Kairi had succumbed to another layer of sleep? That could explain why Kairi took on Sora's appearance later on when battling Xehanort. In DDD the more layers of sleep Sora feel under the more trippy things got for him. And depending on how far buried in Kairi's subconscious her memories of Radiant Garden and Xehanort were it would make sense that she'd end up deeper and deeper in away from the surface level of sleep. And when Kairi wakes up she's not attached to any machines in the lab is she? That could be explained as a result of Ienzo, Ansem the Wise, and Even shutting down and unplugging her from whatever she was connected to that let them analyze her memories while she slept.
 

Might even explain one of my biggest gripes with Melody of Memory, why are Kairi's memories of her past so basic; she never gets to the point where she remembers even a little bit of what might've happened to her grandmother for example, and presumably while running from the heartless she should've also had some vague memory of the Final Fantasy gang from Radiant Garden trying to defend the city from the heartless when they invaded. Depending on if Kairi's dive into her memories for a clue about Sora actually got deep enough we really should've gotten more about her past out of it all than we did.

I mean, that would probably require them to show an old woman *supposedly* dying off-screen protecting her granddaughter AND making 10-years-younger models for the FF gang.

Pretty weird that this wasn’t in the game to begin with (or at the very least, wasn’t added in sooner).

That's a rather strange bit to add. And of all the things in the series to clarify, it's that this one bit is beyond their control?

Considering just how much of Melody of Memory is reused assets they could definitely have afforded to do that though so I fail to see your point; and well, let's be honest here, with the way Nomura likes to go back and over explain things so much or re-contextualize them it's not as if they're never going to get around to explaining those bits of Kairi's past. Money definitely wasn't the issue here. And time likely wasn't either considering that again, the game is mostly just reused assets. Not even a full hour of brand new cutscenes are included in it.

The game is mostly reused assets for likely economic reasons, regardless of whether or not they could afford anything more as a company.
