Kurt, one of our staff writers, found some possibly juicy details about Final Fantasy VI Advance. We say possibly because this information was discovered with the help of cheating devices. Apparently General Leo can be resurrected at the cost of the Phoenix magicite, once resurrected Leo can join your party. Back when Final Fantasy VI (aka Final Fantasy III in the USA) was released there was a false rumor about resurrecting Leo by finding an extra dragon in the dinosaur forest. After spending many hours slaying Tyrannosaurs Rexes the rumor was proven to be false. As a surprise, Emperor Gestahl’s ghost is a new playable character. To obtain him you need to track down the “master crown”. In battle Gestahl has a “summon” command as his ability, this command differes from using magicite since it is part of the four battle menu commands. Also we now know how Gilgamesh can be found in Final Fantasy VI Advance. First you have to buy the “excalipar” sword at the auction house then bet the blade at the coliseum. After a quick fight Gilgamesh will challenge you and if you win you earn the Gilgamesh magicite. Check beyond the break to see more pictures of Leo & Gesthal and a video of a FF6 party battling Gilgamesh.
