Final Fantasy VI Advance - hands-on

Rounding up the package is a new script. Several controversial story points were altered in the original release due to Nintendo's old content policies. Fans have long clamored for a revised translation, and it looks like the ideal English version is finally on its way.

With a US release in February, it won't be too long before US fans can get their hands on what is arguably the best of the earlier Final Fantasy games. Sadly, as many developers look to focus on the DS, the GBA is being abandoned. With little remaining in the pipeline, Final Fantasy VI Advance may just be the last noteworthy game for Nintendo's beloved handheld. We can't think of a more fitting send-off for a device that's given us hundreds of hours of portable entertainment than one of the all-time classics of the RPG genre.
