Some days ago, I happened upon an article about the making of Final Fantasy VI which was tweeted out by the editor-in-chief of this fine blog, and it was a pretty interesting read. It didn’t explicitly tell me much about the game I didn’t already know from having played it, outside of the fact that it was developed in just one year, but it did set my mind upon a different Squaresoft game from that same year. One overlooked in the shadow of the company’s flagship franchise, and never released for English-speaking audiences (an independent translation has since been available for years, but as to how to find it, I couldn’t possibly speculate).
In this new nameless and shapeless feature, an editor will dissect a game-related topic in greater detail than they could in reviews or podcasts. New columns go up every Thursday. Fair warning: this first editorial contains major spoilers for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 and its expansion, The Answer.
