In some fantastic news we learn that a remake of the original Seiken Densetsu game, released in the west as Final Fantasy Adventure, is going to be making its way to the PlayStation Vita, Android and iPhone smartphones. I’ve seen no dates yet, but we do get a glimpse into the art-style of the remake in the video released by Square-Enix on YouTube:
You can also check out the new website covering the new game here.
The Remixes page is back in action, and in perfect timing (gee golly what a coincidence, huh?), as a new Seiken Densetsu remix has just been posted on OCRemix: Starlight Festival – Kiamet, a wonderful solo piano rendition of Powell from Seiken Densetsu 3 that brings across a sense of urgency through its Latin influence in style. The playing is very precise and includes some very nice harmonies and added textures on top of the original melody. The sound quality is exceptional.
Another Monday full of music, and with a site update to boot!
The following remixes have been added to our remix section, which was falling a bit behind (my bad, sorry). These have been contributed by the good old people at OCRemix.
You’ll be able to find them easily on the pages for FFA, SoM and SD3 as they have the icon next to them.
‘Chivalry Begins’ by Big Giant Circles
‘Things We Didn’t Know’ by Vampire Hunter Dan
‘Step Off My Flower Bed’ by Nase
‘Sea/Sky’ by Ziwtra
‘Aurora Borealis’ by Rozovian
I’ve picked out this one in particular, Step Off my Flower Bed, by Nase, simply because there’s so much going on in the remix, you should listen to it several times and will keep picking up more as you revisit it.
A small update to kick start the year off, you can now see a comparison between the GameBoy and Mobile versions of Seiken Densetsu (Final Fantasy Adventure), detailing the differences between the two versions of the game as well as screenshots of a handful of scenes side by side.
And while we’re on topic, we encourage you to head on over to sign the online petition to bring Seiken Densetsu (Final Fantasy Adventure) to a home console.
Right now there is not much here, but we hope the addition of this section will attract lots of new fan submissions to the site. Right now it is basically just links to other parts of the site… fan galleries and music.
I stumbled across an interesting set of blog articles over on a blog called Game Design Reviews which analyse aspects of Sword of Mana that failed to impress and paled against the game it was trying to “take to a new level”. A very interesting read.
You may wonder why in a site that is about Seiken Densetsu series is posting anything about the Final Fantasy series. But it does have something with Seiken Densetsu to do. FF Retrospective is about the Final Fantasy franchise in video form. Each week GameTrailer is posting a new video about the series, and will end after 13 parts. In this part, the tenth, you will see a short report about the very first game of Seiken Densetu. The game that started the series. Sheexy will probably love this, since it’s his favourite game of the series.
