Nintendo Reinvents Final Fantasy

Nintendo has resurrected the original two Square Enix FINAL FANTASY installments and adds bonus content. FINAL FANTASY I & II: DAWN OF SOULS, which launched for Game Boy Advance SP, lets players revisit familiar sagas before throwing new challenges at them. Both games are contained on one game pak.

"Nintendo has taken two great games, added some twists and made the first true FINAL FANTASY adventure portable," said George Harrison, Nintendo of America's svp of marketing and corporate communications. "It's easy to guess how excited the dedicated FINAL FANTASY fans are about the new spin on their beloved games."

The FINAL FANTASY I adventure follows four young adventurers as they use swords and sorcery to help restore order to their chaotic world. Players will discover a series of four bonus dungeons not found in the original game. Inside, players will encounter and battle an array of monsters from FINAL FANTASY games III through VI before fighting the final boss; to keep things interesting, the layout of the dungeons changes every time.

In FINAL FANTASY II, a band of orphans leads a resistance force to free the world from the clutches of an evil empire. After four characters die in the main game, a bonus storyline follows them into the afterlife as they fight to defeat the emperor of Pandaemonium.

FINAL FANTASY I & II: DAWN OF SOULS, Rated E for Everyone, is available for $34.99. THE OFFICIAL NINTENDO FINAL FANTASY I & II: DAWN OF SOULS PLAYER'S GUIDE, created by the editors of NINTENDO POWER, is also available at retail. For more information, visit
