    I just got this email minutes ago:
    ==========================================

    Ever wanted to know what started the FINAL FANTASY phenomenon? Now's your
    chance to play the original FINAL FANTASY (released in North America in
    1990), as well as FINAL FANTASY II (never before released in North
    America) for the first time ever. The origins of the landmark FINAL
    FANTASY series will now be enhanced for the PlayStation(R) game console,
    taking advantage of technology not available at the time of their original
    release on one CD-ROM in FINAL FANTASY ORIGINS.

    This special remake of both titles contains new event scenes that add to
    the emotional impact of the originals. Players who have experienced the
    originals will be pleased to find enhanced graphics and sound throughout
    their journey. Without a doubt, FINAL FANTASY ORIGINS will be one
    collector's item that players will not want to miss.
    Here is what you can look forward to in FINAL FANTASY ORIGINS:

    * Enhanced graphics breathe life and detail into all game elements,
    from deep dungeons and vast worlds to menacing creatures and
    wandering heroes.
    * Brand new, high quality CG movies and stills visually enhance the
    storylines in dramatic fashion.
    * Original event scenes have been revamped and new event scenes
    added to intensify the emotional impact of story elements.
    * New opening theme songs and improved sound quality immerse the
    player even further into the game experience.
    * A new bestiary contains detailed descriptions of all monsters
    to assist players in battle.
    * Access to art galleries featuring beautiful illustrations by
    renowned artist Yo****aka Amano.
    * "Memo File" function added for quick, convenient saves.
    * New game play modes allow players to choose the level of
    difficulty within the game. (FINAL FANTASY II - accessible after
    clearing the game)

    FINAL FANTASY ORIGINS will be available April 8, 2003 for the PlayStation
    at a suggested retail price of $30. Complete game information and
    screenshots will be available on this site in just a couple weeks!
    Visit the official FINAL FANTASY ORIGINS website here for more information
    about the game: http://www.squaresoft.com/playonline/FFORIGINS

    Four young warriors, each possessing a Crystal are summoned to bring the
    world back to a harmonious balance. During their voyage, they discover a
    nefarious entity creating turmoil in the structure of time in an attempt
    to conquer the world. Unknowing of their destiny, the warriors begin their
    quest to restore order and travel to places they never imagined possible.

    A malevolent Emperor has called upon monsters from a demonic realm to take
    over the world, ending what seemed to be an eternal period of peace.
    Thousands of lives succumb to their attacks orphaning many children. From
    the destruction rise four young survivors who will take it upon themselves
    to stop the merciless ruler and avenge the death of their parents
    ==================================

    Most interesting eh?
    We live in a time of prequels and remakes. :rolleyes:

    [​IMG] What?? Mr Amano's name got censored by SP?

    Hmmm. Just to clarify things. No blatant defiance of the forum rules here, y'all understand?

    The artist Mr Yos h i t a k a Amano will be the artist doing the concept art of the above mentioned FF games. He has done so for many FF games and has conspired with writers in the production of illustrated novels, namely Neil Gaiman of Sandman fame, for one.

    And FF origin's coming out for the PS1? Imagine the difficulty in locating a copy of this game now.

    Still, for some FF laughs, visit the 8-bit theater, an online comic that spoofs off FF.

    And of course we europeans can just sit back and watch the americans party. Chances that game is released in Europe is very small.

    You could buy a used american playstation 1 on eBay. Then you could any US game right?

    If it's in nice shape, like mine, they go for about $20 I think.

    But the shipping across the ocean is a pain isn't it? :(

    Maybe you could find a US PS from a used game shop were you live?

    I know here sometimes you could find a Japanese SNES or playstation to play some games only released in Japan like Dragon Warrior 6.
