Blast From The Past | Final Fantasy Adventure

For us Europeans, this was our first taste of anything Final Fantasy related, released as it was back in 1993 alongside Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest, two years after it had dropped onto Japanese shelves. And it was immediately accused of being the runt of the litter. There a none of the sweeping narrative epics that Square had ploughed into their flagship RPG series thus far, no turn-based battle system, although Moogles and Chocobos did pop up from time to time.

No, wasn't a 'proper' Final Fantasy game at all. But that didn't matter because, quite frankly, Final Fantasy Adventure (or Seiken Densetsu as it was called in Japan) is one of the finest games to ever grace the Game Boy.
