The Awakened Wild Liger is more of an update on the first one. With a much better gold paint, and more shiny blue and an improved motor, it is the version of the Wild Liger I would recommend getting if you just want one Wild Liger and have no interest in variants.
Seriously Wild Liger variants are a rabbit hole you want to avoid.
The one I got ended up being a Korean release, despite buying it of Amazon Japan. There is virtually no difference between Korean releases and Japanese ones. Only minor thing with the Awakened Wild Liger is a booklet the Japanese release had. (Which was why I bought it of Amazon Japan, but oh well).
As of this post (August 2019) the Awakening Wild Liger, being a limited run, has become harder to find and the price for it has been going up. If you manage to find one, regardless of release, for a good deal, I highly recommend it.
The instructions that come with this version of the kit are the same that come with the standard initial release.
