That's all well and good. The fact remains that Lufia II's dialogue is far too simplistic sometimes, and it speeds by very, very quickly. There's being verbose, there's being brief, and then there's speed-talking. Lufia II often goes into speed-talking territory which really hurts the story.

Oh geez, they gave Maxim a metrosexual look right out of Persona:

I prefer old-school Maxim when he was more of a "man's man."

I don't think that qualifies as metro at all. He's a bit stylish, but I think he's got a nice manly touch.

Metrosexual? He's got ABS.

He sort of reminds me of Axel from Kingdom Hearts with a six-pack. GOT IT MEMORIZED?

Oh, and just on rumor patrol, apparently the original composer IS coming back. I need to find the source info (this was via twitter) so take it with a grain of salt.

Gades looks cool.

I remember Maxim having a gelled-back hairstyle. He looks more modern in the new images compared to the old Maxim.

Pretty much. If anything, his old model looks more girlish than his new one.

I don't object with the design, it just seems somewhat out of place. THe old design with full body armor was much more appropriate, IMO.

I realize that I'm not that familiar with Lufia 2, but is that Dekar in the pic closest to the upper left corner?

Same here, it seems like a lot of RPG character design is falling victim to fashion and "looking cool" rather than making sense for the setting.

Dekar should have some sort of blue hair. That big buff blonde guy, I really hope it's not Guy. I never pictured him as being that bulky ; here's his original artwork ; http://forfeit.electromaz.com/lufia2/art/guy.jpg
Here's Dekar too for reference ; http://forfeit.electromaz.com/lufia2/art/dekar.jpg

Next time, lets try for links that don't lead to 403 error pages.

Google is your friend.

And, not a huge fan of the redesign of Maxim, but it looks alright. Like others, would've preferred if they had a more high fantasy design. I get the feeling that top left corner shot has Guy in it- and he looks ridiculous.
