Square Enix announces the first details on Final Fantasy I & II Advance for the Game Boy Advance on its teaser site.
Square Enix has published the beginnings of its Japanese Final Fantasy I & II Advance website, and with it come the first concrete details on the collection’s enhancements to the originals.
Much like Enix’s Dragon Warrior I & II for Game Boy Color, Final Fantasy I & II on the GBA features updated graphics and tweaked gameplay mechanics. The remake supplements the originals’ magic stocks with a more modern magic point system and includes a convenient save-anywhere feature.
The two-in-one cart also boasts completely new content. [Highlight to read spoilers.] Square Enix has added a new dungeon, named the “Soul of Chaos,” to Final Fantasy I, which holds shiny new treasures, like the Ultima Weapon, and classic bosses from multiple Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy II will contain a new plotline called the “Soul of Rebirth,” where players control NPC’s Ming-Wu, Scott, Joseph, and Richard, who all die in the main story.
Final Fantasy I & II is scheduled for a July release in Japan. Plans for an international release have not been announced, but are expected to surface at E3 next month.
