A New Final Fantasy Adventure in Development

Seiken Densetsu has moved on from its original roots as a Final Fantasy spinoff. However, it appears that a new title is under development stemming from the first game from 1991, known in North America as Final Fantasy Adventure.

    What? Seiken Densetsu started as an FF spinoff? I thought Final Fantasy Adventure was just the US name.

    That's right. It's not like SaGa, where they slapped Final Fantasy on the box to make it sell better. In Seiken Densetsu's case, rather than having "Final Fantasy" be the subtitle, it became the title
    Bravely second...

    Well, whatever. That series has always been Secret of Mana & Friends to me, because not a single game in the series is even close to SoM and I doubt there ever will be.

    Judging from the characters introduced, this is going to be another remake.

    In case people had forgotten, Sword of Mana was already a remake of Final Fantasy Adventure.

    Dark Lord and Julius The Dragon and Big Bad of both of these games. Shadowknight certain looks a bit like Dark Lord did, and clearly Julius is himself.

    The original on the gameboy was one of the few games where I had to complete start over. I saved while I was poisoned and loading my save would give me a game over, since I had no items or ways to cure myself at the time.

    SD 3 SNES never got released outside of Japan so the only way to play it and not in Japanese is via translated patches.

    However of all the SD games I did play in english SD 2 (Secret of Mana) is easily the best game in the series I found the SD games starting with the english version of Legend of Mana (PS1) to be too boring to play even for its battles only.

    I never enjoyed Seiken Densetsu 3. I played a considerable amount of it when it was fan translated, probably near all of it, but I never really liked it. The battle system was similar to SoM, but it felt off. I would say the changes that were made were for the worse. The story was significantly worse, seemingly randomly spliced together depending on the characters you chose. The worst part about the gameplay though was that it was significantly and annoyingly harder than Secret of Mana and in a way that I can't understand anyone enjoying. As best I recall, I remember some boss battles taking near an hour because of the high HP and comparatively low damage the heroes did... and even regular enemies suffered from the absurd HP inflation. Even if I was doing something wrong, I don't forgive the creators, because it wasn't made clear. No, I do not in away consider SD3 to be a game that came close to SoM, and frankly, playing it I understood why it was never brought over in the first place. Honestly, I probably prefer Legend of Mana over SD3.

    SD3 was cool in the different characters and stories (and it looked way better than SoM) but the last dungeon for all three paths always stumped me - needed lots of leveling up. Everything also seemed like it was pretty laggy.

    Legend of Mana's gameplay left a lot to be desired (especially all the various things that were practically impossible to discover without a guide), the battles were generally way too easy, but the overall aesthetic and style was brilliant. Great soundtrack as well.
