Warning: immaturity ahead

Post by Valigarmander » Sun Dec 13, 2009 6:15 am

So, I happened to be flipping through an old manual for Final Fantasy II for the SNES (actually FFIV, it was released in the U.S. titled FFII, yadda yadda you're all geeks you know the story), and I happened to come across this interestingly lazy translation which I've scanned just for you. It's on the page where the various magic spells and their effects are listed. Direct your attention to the Shiva summon.

I wonder who the lucky wizard is?

I think these last two posts made my day. Two things from my childhood. I remember that manual and how it was essentially a walkthrough for the first half of the game. Never mind that Meteo cost 99 MP, not 50 MP. -CSM

Well, at least it's Shiva and not, say, Ifrit. That would be painful.

^^He's Jinn. There is no Ifrit in the SNES version of the game. -CSM

Have I ever told you that I'm a powerful wizard?
