Hello

I know this has probably been posted or gone over before so just bear with me:) Am having some confusion with my son on all these releases for Final Fantasy. Once we get this straight I'm printing out and laminating it:)

I pretty much have it figured out, I think, but am missing one somehow, anyway heres what I have:

Japan:           US:
FF I               FF I NES      FF  I(Origins)PSX   FF  I(Dawn of Souls)GBA
FF II                                FF II(Origins)PSX   FF II(Dawn of Souls)GBA
FF III            FF II SNES                              FF  IV(Advance)GBA
FF IV           FF III SNES    FFVI(Anth)PSX     FF   V(Advance)GBA
FF V                                 FFV(Anth) PSX      FF VI(Advance)GBA

At FF VI is where I seem to get messed up at, didn't the Japan and US releases start being the same at  VII, VIII, IX for the Playstation and after that the same for PSX II: X, X-2, XI-online, and finally XII

If I'm way off here, staighten me out, I would appreicate it.

Thanks

Okay, left column is the Japanese release, right column in North American

Japanese---------------------|------------------North American
Final Fantasy (Famicon) -  Final Fantasy (NES)
Final Fantasy II (Famicon) - Final Fantasy II (Dawn of Souls (GBA)/Origins (PSOne))
Final Fantasy III (Famicon) - Final Fantasy III (DS)
Final Fantasy IV (Super Famicon) - Final Fantasy II (SNES), Final Fantasy IV (PSOne/GBA)
Final Fantasy V (Super Famicon) - Final Fantasy V (PSOne/GBA)
Final Fantasy VI (Super Famicon) - Final Fantasy III (SNES), Final Fantasy VI (PSOne/GBA)

Final Fantasy titles from VII onward have the same numbering system.

If you want to know about the GB FF titles (Adventure/Legend), I'm sure I can dig up which is SaGa and which is "of Mana".

That's pretty easy actually: Final Fantasy Adventure = Seiken Densetsu 1 = first Mana game, and Final Fantasy Legend = SaGa. No numbering hijinks with SaGa, FFL3=SaGa 3 and whatnot.

Okay, thanks for the reply.

You didn't list FF I(Dawn of Souls)GBA or FFI(Origins)PSX so is that the original FF then(NES)?

FF1 in all incarnations is FF1. Also, all FFs that've been released or re-released since FFVII have their correct japanese numbers.

Okay,

Thanks again for the info, I got it straight now, forgot about the Chronicles release.

Dang, I guess we're going to have to get a DS to play the FFIII Famicom release.

Oh well:)

It's a complete remake...  It won't be exactly the same.

And yeah, we can sorta already play the NES FFIII...
