Europe Finally Gets The Original Final Fantasy

imageWhen Nintendo brought Final Fantasy out of Japan they skipped Europe. PAL gamers eventually got to play it, but only through remakes. Today, Final Fantasy, the very first iteration of it, is available in Europe.


Nintendo put Final Fantasy on the Virtual Console as a digital import with the standard import tax. A download costs 600 Wii Points ($6).


This version doesn’t have magic points, cameo bosses from other Final Fantasy games or full motion videos. However, your characters will hit air if an enemy dies and this version has 8-bit graphics. Ah, nostalgia.

  • Import tax on a digital download? Is there something that I’m missing?

      That really has to be the Square Enix tax.

    I would get this, if I didn’t already have Origins. It’s basically the same, except you can run in towns, and choose to auto-target a different enemy if it dies (mind you, you can also choose not to, so the game is basically the same as the original).

    This is the best version of Final Fantasy in my opinion. Second best is PSX, third GBA, last PSP. I still like the PSP version, but that one is by far the worst. Whoever came up with the idea of making your visibility be in a circle in almost every cave area is retarded.
