I'm sure someone remembers this.  

my question is, do these pictures seem different at all, from the final game released on Mega CD ~  Sega CD ?

Well, I'm pretty sure you do not fight that skeletal dragon thing in a desert like that snapshot shows.  I also don't remember Alex petting Nall in the game.

Games often change as they're being made.  Heck, Lunar was originally intended to be a trilogy, with the first game being about the adventures of Dyne and co.  This, I guess, explains why The Silver Star seems so much like a sequel.

Correction: It was written as three seperate stories. They never intended to create the Four Heros story as a game prior to TSS. That's not to say they never planned to create a game based on it, but TSS was intended to be the first Lunar game released.

As for the pictures, this was posted on LunarNET as well, but for anyone that's interested, most of the pictures are definately not from the final game. The Black Dragon was in it's cave, and all of the first four pictures are different. Luna has blue hair in the final version, not brown. And as mentioned above, Alex wasn't in that pose either.

I don't remember that article, but I do remember a walkthough of Lunar II that was in, I think, EGM years and years and years ago.  Ah, the days when game magazines acytually bothered to play the games they review.

Don't look now, game mags never did fully play games they review. Common practice.

Hehe, it said harder than any other quest before.  I wonder if among the other changes the difficulty was toned down too. :p

Yup, I remember that. All the pics of Lunar are what got me so psyched up about the sega cd. I enjoyed the game tremendously, so I don't really care whether what they showed was in the game or not. Not so sure about the difficulty thing either, as the game was no where near easy.
