Name Changes a. Characters b. Character Classes c. Items d. Weapons e. Spells f. Armor g. Monsters h. Monster/Esper Skills V. Closing Remarks ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- I. Introduction --------------------------------- In December 1989, Square released one of the first RPGs for a handheld system, titled Makaitoushi SaGa (Demon World Tower SaGa). The was the first game in the SaGa series, which would later include two Game Boy sequels, the Romancing SaGa trilogy on Super Famicom, SaGa Frontier 1 and 2 on Playstation, and Unlimited SaGa on Playstation 2. In September 1990, Makaitoushi SaGa was released in North America as The Final Fantasy Legend, to cash in on the recent success of first Final Fantasy's NA release. There were some interesting changes made in translation, which this FAQ is here to document. Makaitoushi SaGa received a remake for the Wonderswan Color in March 2002, featuring updated graphics (roughly on par with the 16-bit FF games), and fixes of the original's many bugs. II. Version History --------------------------------- Version 1.0 (7/29/09) The first, and most likely final release. Everything should be here. III. General/Dialogue Differences ---------------------------------- -Because the Japanese writing system allows you to write more in less space (for example, Katana takes only three characters to write in Japanese but six in English), the full names for items are written out and there are no icons telling you what type of item it is. Gameplay: The gameplay between SaGa and FFL is virtually the same, except for a few differences which are more the result of programming errors than legitimate changes. For example, you are only able to use the Glass Sword once in the original, but it can be used 50 times in the NA version. Similarly, Excaliber has infinite uses in the original but 50 in the NA version. Key Terms: FFL SaGa ---- ----- GP Kero Sphere Crystal Dialogue Changes: -The FFL translation did the job well enough, although it was somewhat stiff and lost some of the nuances of the original Japanese script. For example: -King Armor's love is referred to as "the most beautiful girl in the village" by her fellow townspeople, so naturally the heroes react with mild surprise when they see that she looks exactly like everyone else in the village (i.e., like FFL2's Mr. S). -Ashura's four fiends are variously referred to as "four heavenly kings" and "demons", depending on who is talking. -The statue on the 7th floor that tells you "You may lose track of time while in the Tower" originally says something closer to "Time flows differently within the Tower". -Probably the most fascinating text change deals with the row of bookcases on the Tower's 20th floor. In the NA version, each bookcase featured a word of the sentence "Ashura is controlled by..." with the final word being unreadable. In the original Japanese, each bookcase featured a name, a date, and a floor number. "Arthur - ....11th 19-3-21" "Kurou - .....13th 50-2-18" "Haan - ......9th 72-6-14" "Zeke - ......6th 24-2-12" "Liz - .......12th 80-1-28" "Chara 1: What is this record?" "[Main Chara] - ......" "Chara 2: We won't be defeated partway like these guys, just you wait!" This is made all the more eerie with the revelation at the end that the Creator is using the Tower and all who challenge it for his own amusement. To him, these are "high scores", a record of those who tried and failed. Your party's entry is still unwritten. Spooky. -The end credits are conspicuously missing from the NA version. IV.

[arm4]: AKA Zhuge Liang, Kong Ming was another figure from the Three Kingdoms period. Folklore associates him with Taoism-based magic powers, such as summoning the wind.

pun; "Ebi" means shrimp, "Ebiru" means evil.

[mons3]: One interpretation of the Semitic god Dagon portrays him as a fish god, partly because of the Hebrew word "dag" - fish. [mons4]: A Baku is a Japanese chimera that eats nightmares.

Closing Remarks ----------------------------- Some links I found incredibly useful: http://www.solon.org/cgi-bin/j-e/ Jeffrey's Japanese-English Dictionary Server: This is the best Japanese translation site I've come across on the web so far. I could not have done these translations without it. http://xb_lim.at.infoseek.co.jp/ Pledge of Bahamut: A Japanese site providing a comparison of SaGa and FFL, for Japanese players who are curious about the English version. Its listings of the Japanese names made my job infinitely easier. There are also comparisons for the other two Gameboy SaGas and Seiken Densetsu/ Final Fantasy Adventure. http://www.towerreversed.org/dump Text dumps of item/enemy names for all three Gameboy SaGas, allowing me to check my romanizations and provide quick lists for translation.
