Though there are maybe no difference from the original artwork, each of the character?s portraits were given a much polished look with darker shades. But one major change is for Elphelt, where she has a white and pink color scheme not changed to a darker color tone with black, gray and white. This is a result of a transition in her character from the ?SIGN- installment to Revelator based on her story progression in the game.
