Description Edit | History

From the game box:
The legend continues. A new evil threatens the land, and once more, a band of young heroes stands against it.

User summary:
Final Fantasy II was the second FF installment by Square. The game features a distinguishly darker "rebel army" scenario, and is infamous for its unique 'levelling' system – characters increased their HP by being wounded in battle, and players quickly realized that hitting yourself was the best way of getting wounded. Players ended up entering battle only to constantly hit themselves, attacking the real enemies only when they had lost enough HP to get a gain.


Not to be confused with the US release "Final Fantasy II", which is actually Final Fantasy IV

  • Final Fantasy II and it's sequel Final Fantasy III, were not originally released in the US. When Final Fantasy IV came out in the US, it was sold as Final Fantasy II in an attempt to avoid confusion.
  • Final Fantasy V also never got a US release. So when Final Fantasy VI came out in the US, it was sold as Final Fantasy III.
  • From Final Fantasy VII onward, the same numbering was used and all remakes of the earlier games have retained their original numbering.
  • The only U.S. releases of the true Final Fantasy II were on PlayStation and GBA.
