Fucking finally. My favourite entry in the series. :peace:

I knew you'd be loving this announcement. I'm left waiting for VIII though. :(

Well, my second favourite entry is VIII, so I'm also waiting for that.

Next year!

It's now up on both the EU and US stores. Well, that's a nice surprise! I'll have to pick up some PSN credit during my lunch break.

Oh with a nice PS+ discount.

Wanted to wait until next month but I have to take advantage of that.

I'll probably wait until it goes on sale but I do plan to get it. I do have it on Vita but everything just looked so murky that I gave up playing it.

Uhh, never went for Excalibur II. Will do. But not on my first playthrough.

It could be very easy, though. If the game speed boost doesn't speed up the game time it'll be not too bad.

Ah, true. I forgot about the speed boosters.

Here's a stream of the game.

 

Looks nice and sharp.

Oh my God, that music. :heart:

I'm instantly taken back the good times. When I was 10...fuck I'm old.

 

Edit: Just remembered that Tetra Master is in this...gonna spend a lot of time with this game again :D

Pants! There's a trophy for doing the jump rope mini game 1000 times without tripping. Yeah, no platinum for me.

This is gonna be annoying :D

But I have to get the Platinum. For nostalgia's sake.

 

Edit: Just bought it, downloading now. Didn't know there's also a PS4 theme included. It's beautiful.

I was never able to do the skipping rope thing when I played it in my youth. I'm sure you got some cards or other item for getting over 1000 skips without stopping.

You get cards for up to 300 jumps.

For 1000 you get a key item which does absolutely nothing.

At least it's 60Hz so you can actually do it this time. But you can't skip cutscenes now can you?!!

Either way, love this game. The first Final Fantasy game I played.

Someone on Gaf mentioned that you can skip the scenes. Even if you couldn't, the speed cheats ( as drahkon mentioned ) could be used to make you're way to where you need to be to unlock the weapon.

206 jumps on my second try...

 

Oh boy, this will take a while. Not advancing until I get the 1000 :laughing:

I've been reading some stories on a couple of trophy websites of people trying for 4-6 hours and still not being able to unlock the skipping rope trophy. The platinum percentage for this game is gonna be really low. :D

I gave it a go for 20 minutes yesterday. The most difficult part for me is the rhythm change after 200 jumps. And then back again after 300. After that it shouldn't be too hard...will try again later today.

I stopped at 1002 because fuck this shit.

Edit: Wow, someone just asked me if I could help him with the trophy. He wants to give me his login data...

People keep sending me messages asking if I can do the 1000 jump trophy for them :D

 

Anyway, looking forward to playing this again later today :) Won't follow a guide and I won't care about missable trophies in this first playthrough. I'll simply play and enjoy the game and do as much as I can :peace:
