I mean, full disclosure, the SNES version is my 4th favorite game of all time behind FF6, Chrono, and Persona 5.
That said, the art style doesn't bother me, the combat feels the same, and the story still has its charms. I feel like I am 11 years old again while I play, which is exactly what I was looking for.
Same here! Except the only difference is I'm not playing with my two brothers who also enjoyed this game. And the SNES version is also one of my all time favorites.
I'll be buying it, just not yet... probably wait for the price to drop on Amazon, although I don't really have a problem with the current price anyway, I'm just not in a rush to play it.
If you're referring to the physical copy it's a Gamestop/EB Games exclusive with a limited run unfortunately.
At first I was skeptical about the way it looks compared to the original. But after watching a friend play it for a bit, and especially hearing the music and the voice overs (Japanese version. Can't vouch for the Eng version) I changed my mind and I'm now looking forward to playing this magical game once again.
That's awesome to hear! I think any veterans that enjoyed the original and aren't looking forward to this version should just try it out somehow and actually get a feel for it. Wish there was a demo for this for everyone to try.
