- Square-Enix requested the game - dev team says it's not a port or direct remake - different world from the SNES version - Wave Device is a key element - expect to use the dpad more than the stylus - tough, but not too tough bosses - 'growth of the RPG' - scenario is based on Lufia II, will have lines that are the same as Lufia II, but overall the game is being rewritten - town number differs from first and second game - returning music from first and second game - improved sound quality - once again, original staff reconfirmed - retaining "xxx of Magic" and "Magical xxx"
Lufia II actually had a lot of pretty high quality puzzles involved, which looking back on it, seems almost rare. I mean, most RPG puzzles are fairly basic, and come off as looking like an afterthought at best.
So I'm also very interested in knowing if they are going to be keeping the puzzle element, and if so, are they going to rehash the old ones or create totally new ones?
This could be awesome. Kinda wish this was coming to Wii. It's not like the DS doesn't already have a million (or so) awesome RPGs under its belt and more on the way. :-P I'll keep an eye out for it. This, and the SaGa 2 remake, of course.
Also I had no idea that the developers of the original Lufia games were the developers of the Rune Factory games?! I think I definitely need to get ahold of one of those games now.
Haha, that's awesome, I didn't know that myself.
Frontier is a great game, btw. Not exactly A level or anything (it does scream PS2), but I played the hell out of it and at any time I could plop right back in and be addicted again. I might pop it in this weekend, been thinking about the game a lot lately...
