Here is a post on Gamespot listing some differences. Some examples:

  • "The addition of a DS style combat system, which simply moves the commands from the top screen into the bottom screen, clearing up the screen a bit"
  • "New items. If you thought Rainbow was ridiculous there's a new sword for Crono that's more powerful and has a 90% critical hit rate."

    Can you please put the entire list in your answer, including the spoiler changelist with sufficient warning that it features spoilers? – Christian Jul 29 '10 at 21:32
  • The link to Gamespot is now dead (there is some other unrelated content there). Can someone else provide a definitive list? – JonathanDavidArndt Nov 5 at 2:21
