Why does Nintendo use wording like "download the player's guide so you can view it on the Wii U GamePad with convenience while you play" when you can view it only on the internet browser, or am I mistaken? :O

Because you can't use the internet browser while you play.

Also: Everyone listen to this beautiful orchestral rendition of "Because I Love You" to celebrate~

I believe in make believe~

Most of the music that would have theoretically needed to have been changed doesn't show up until much later in the game. So we probably won't know for a while.

Though two early ones that are often pointed out exist in the naming of your characters screen and the battle with Franky, and apparently those remain the same. So who knows :O

The strategy guide was such a big part of the original if I remember correctly, so it's nice that Nintendo is including it <3

Can't wait to play this :*

Iirc the game went for $60 due to the strat guide rather than the usual $40. It was nice to have but it wasn't really that big of a part of the game.

I got to agree with @Emaan on this, I used the Guide and I think it truly enhances the experience because the Guide was so well done.

Tasuki, I think when the game came out it was $70 like most of the big SNES RPG's of the time.

@Ryno: Whoa a Ryno return. :D Let that show you how big EB coming to the VC is. I hope that you are enjoying fatherhood.

As for the price I am not one hundred percent but I dont remember any RPGs being $70. Heck even Chrono and FF III were only $40 at the stores I got them at. Maybe it was a regional thing? I do remember though that EB was a bit more cause of the guide.

@Tasuki: Definitely enjoying fatherhood, thank you. Looking forward to when he can play some Nintendo. :)

So you don't remember $70 SNES games? Here is the poster included with Final Fantasy III where Square MSRP is shown 69.00 for Final Fantasy II..

@Ryno: Honestly I dont. But I am not sure if that was the store price that looks like the price you would pay by ordering through Squaresoft. Again maybe it was a regional thing? I can't say that about Final Fantasy II cause I got that for Christmas so I don't know what my parents spent on that game.

I do know that Final Fantasy III was only $40 were I bought it at (which was Target) cause that year I got $50 for my birthday which was a few weeks after FFIII came out in NA and I bought the game then, unless it was on sale that I am not remembering. But I can't see it being on sale for $20 less just a few weeks after release.

@Ryno: Yeah but that was because of the strat guide being included? Wasn't it.

Oh and I forgot to say about your comment on being able to play Nintendo with him. That will be one of the best days of your life trust me on that. Even to this day when my son and I play a game together it makes it a great day.

A lot of games, mostly RPGs were around this price. FF on NES was around $70. NES was average of $45-60. FF3 was $80.

@Tasuki: Yeah man, I am done trying to convince you. LOL I know some SNES games were in the $70's. I think Turtles N Time and WWF Royal Rumble were because I remember saving up forver for those.

I honestly dont remember games costing that much. And I think it might be a regional thing or something cause I asked a buddy of mine who grew up with me and he doesn't remember no SNES costing more then $40 unless it was a special one like Earthbound that came with a guide.

@Tasuki: Dude, I am trying to walk away from this conversation but you keep tempting me to show more proof of the pricing of Super Nintendo games. :P $40.00 was a budget price for a game like Final Fantasy Mystic Quest.

@Ryno: Lol you can show me all the proof in the world, and I dont remember SNES games being that much. I am not calling you out man or trying to one up you as I said I just don't remember maybe they were and for some reason I am blocking it out lol. Even back in the PS one era I remember games maybe costing $50. For some reason I remember games starting to cost $60 on the PS2 and Xbox.

PS games where cheaper because they were on CD. Really though games costed that much, I live in the US. I remember Kirby Super Star being at a special price at Target for $40 dollars. N64 games were I think $50-60, some going for $70. Mario 64 and Pilowings 64 at launch was $70. Some stores did lower prices for competition. But the MSRP was that much. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 was like $70-80. I remember because I always looked at it at the stores and said, "this is what rich people play" lol.

So to get things back on track here. I have just made it to Twoson (Love the number names that all the towns have in this game). Really bringing back the memories playing this game again. I especially love it on the gamepad.
