Despite only seeing release in Japan and Europe, 1995's Terranigma is regarded as one of the highlights of the SNES RPG library, and copies change hands for startling prices on the secondary market these days.
Sadly, the game has never been re-released in any form, but that's something that some of the key creatives behind it hope to change. Miyoko Takaoka (maiden name Kobayashi, composer) and Kamui Fujiwara (art) have added their voices to a petition which will hopefully show current rights holder Square Enix that there's an appetite for a Terranigma revival of some sort.
Twitter user @kisatosandworld sums up what the petition hopes to achieve:
With the cooperation of Kamui Fujiwara and Miyoko Kobayashi, we have launched a signature movement requesting the archive distribution of [Terranigma]. If you love this work, want to play it, or if you are interested but can't play it, please help us! Thank you for your signature.
Developed by Quintet, Terranigma is considered to be part of a loose SNES trilogy that also includes Illusion of Gaia and Soul Blazer. Quintet also created the thematically similar ActRaiser for the console.
Are you a fan of Terranigma? Would you like to see the game get a digital release, or would you prefer a full remaster, as Square Enix has done with the likes of Legend of Mana and Trials of Mana? Tell us your thoughts in a comment below.
