Recommended Posts

HOLY SHIT. HOOOOOOLY SHIT.

 

"The story follows the conflict between Chaos and Cosmos and their allies, drawn from the main series games of Final Fantasy. Chaos summons the villains of the games in order to take control over the crystals and, in response, Cosmos summons the heroes to return the balance of between discord and harmony."

 

Basically Super Smash Bros. for Final Fantasy, this game has recently gotten my full attention and caused me to request a PSP and the imported Japanese version as a birthday present. I will be playing the ever-fucking shit out of this game when I get it. You can level your characters (up to 100), equip them with accessories that boost stats, customize any character's arsenal of attacks and magic spells as you see fit, and

Yeah, this is the kind of game that can boost the popularity of a console/handheld. I wouldn't be surprised if they increased the number of PSPs manufactured when it comes over here (since I'm thinking it's highly unlikely that it won't).

 

This, along with Phantasy Star Portable, will probably be the reasoning behind my own obtainment of a PSP.

PSP + flat screen TV + component out cables = hey my Final Fantasy Smash Bros on the big screen.

 

I got the game, held onto it for like 2 years (like all of my psp games) and then game it a few shots. It's fun, looks great. I can't say I really know what I'm doing half of the time. A shame it's not on a console; would love to have side by side opponents. Maybe after 012 they'll push out one for PS3?
