Retro Encounter Final Thoughts ~ Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals
Enough with the Asashins already!
04.01.19 - 12:51 AM

Lufia II doesn't often get mentioned in the same circles as the more commonly-praised 16-bit classics like Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star IV, Earthbound, and others... but talk to the right people, and you'll find that it is often placed right alongside its more well-known RPG cousins.

As you may know, March's Retro Encounter game journal was for Lufia II, which you can hear in Episode 179 (Part I) and Episode 181 (Part II).

As always, with the episodes wrapped up, our panelists — who this time include reviewer Zach Wilkerson, Discord mod/admin/mistress Leona McCallum, and Twitch streamer Kat Kortvely — have written up their Final Thoughts on Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals. Go forth!
