Recommended Posts

Square Enix announced Final Fantasy I & II Advance for GameBoy Advance, the game is scheduled to release in Japan in July, for 6090 yen. Both games will feature additional stories and dungeons not found in the original game

Final Fantasy I will have a new dungeon called Soul of Chaos, in which you will find the four Soul of Chaos monsters (powerful boss monsters), as well as various powerful equipment and valuable items. The magic system in FF1 has also changed to a MP consumption system like in the other FF titles.

Final Fantasy II will feature an extra story called Soul of Re-Birth, the story is about the four NPC characters who died in the story (Ming-Wu, Scott, Joseph, Richard), plus additional background stories for each of the heroes. There are also a number of new events, monsters and special items in the game.

Hopefully FF 3 to 6 will follow. A GBA port of FFVI would be great. I'm presuming these versons will be ports of the wonderswan games rather then the famicom games.

Unlikely, I reckon. Although if they do appear I'll be snapping them up also.

Interesting that they have changed the magic system for FF1, although I can see that making it a hell of a lot easier. Also, a bit weird for them to put massive story spoilers in a news article, even though FF2 is about 15 years old.

wasn't mystic quest on the GB FF2?  That was boring as fuck.  Even though I played it through.

I thought Mystic quest was the first mana game.

I don't think i'd buy GBA version of FF 1+2, I'm sure they've aged terribly.I would buy V though.

Mystic Quest was a completely seperate game, known in Japan as Final Fantasy USA. Square believed Westerners would find it too hard to play and so made a "RPG-lite". It was wank.

What you're thinking of is that Final Fantasy Adventure on the GB was the first Seiken Densetsu game (Seiken Densetsu 2 = Secret of Mana), which is what Sword of Mana is a remake of.

Phew.

Yep, Final Fantasy Adventure = Seiken Densetsu.

I hope they don't get a release over here, I was hoping to stop collecting old FF game re-releases with FF Origins on the Playstation. Now these GBA games are shaping up to be the 'definitive' version.

Does the NHS offer Commerce Artery Removal surgery yet?

Yes!!! This can only be good news, surely. I mean if they can be bothered releasing I + II which aren't the most popular ones of the series, their bound to release at least VI as well which is probably one of the most popular ones!

Who knows, we may even see the wonderful Chrono Trigger-my GBA collection would be complete with that amongst it! :lol:

FF: Mystic Quest was a piss easy RPG released on the Snes and nothing to do with the FF series really. FF Adventure on the GB was Seiken Densetsu. Secret of Mana is Seiken Densetsu 2 :unsure:

Errrr, yeah, so what Ed-Epistaxis said :lol:

The games would need a big revamp mind you. They're a bit shit by todays standards.

I'm looking forward to the Shining Force remake. I'd also adore a good remake of Landstalker. Probably not that likely though as Climax/Camelot have lost control of all their liscences to Sega.

I just hope that Square finish off all these remakes with FF7, 8 & 9.

AFAIK these were strongly rumoured to be coming to the PS2 before the disaster of the FF movie forced Square to put them on indefinite hold.

The shots look a lot prettier then the PS FF:Origins conversions.

But I'll keep my wallet at bay I think...having played all the way through Origins I can confirm that both these games have aged fairly badly and by all accounts FF II wasn't that hot to start with.

I'd buy FF III for completism though but I'd much prefer a GBA port of IV & VI

Man, who didn't see that one coming, eh?

If they're gonna do the re-release thing (again), the least they could do is bring out something good like Chrono Trigger.

Actually, going by what happened with the PS, they probably will release Chrono Trigger - after milking their way through everything else that they've done that can be ported to GBA.

It'd be quite fun to see a 2d version of FFVII aswell.

Or would that be only me who'd like to see that?

Oh.

I would.

They could do 2D sprites on a 3D background a-la Golden Sun for the Battle scenes. I don't think the rendered "field" backgrounds would work on the GBA though.

Don't think they'd be able to fit in the FMV either, but they're not so essential to the game IMO.
