    It is/was FFT on a budget- in both visuals and gameplay unfortunately. Not very complex, but still fun. Nice to see combat effects updated, but the sprite movement is a little ropey when upscaled to that size.
    Look up footage of the original games on EShop for 3DS, and if you like it I’d recommend the remake then.

    Those screen shots are just reminding me why the DS’s 2nd screen was a godsent for SRPGs.

    All that information squeezed nicely on a secondary screen, leaving a clean, clear view of the battlefield on the main screen.
