- Hoffman takes the Symbol of faith when it's shown to him, whereas in the NES Version it remains in the player's inventory.
- He leaves upon the party entering Mintos for the first time, regardless whether he's in the line up or not. Afterwards, he attends a lecture held by Hilton, and temporarily works at the Inn after the Hero is joined by Alena and Kiryl.
- He's later found running the Pioneer Town after the Magic Key is obtained.
Hank is present in the near-future version of Reaper's Peak, running the village bar. He doesn't remember how he ended up in the settlement, but is happy to be there even if he has a bad habit of calling the place Hoffton.
