    The first official pic of how the bottom screen will appear in battle has been shown:

    The full scan:

    It's discolored, but it gives you the general idea. Beside the pic, you see the single screen mode. Square-Enix reps at E3 confirmed that the original single-screen mode will be included to satisfy purists. So in all honesty, you can play this game EXACTLY as it was originally supposed to be played if you want! [​IMG]

    The official release date for Japan has also been announced too: November 27. That's 3 days AFTER the US date! [​IMG]

    No one will translate it because it's out in the US FIRST. November 24 is the US date. It's going to have a new translation. The Japanese version will retain the same dialog (I compared a DS and SNES screen), but the US version will have a new remastered localization ala the GBA/DS Final Fantasies. [​IMG]

    Cannot wait. Thanks for the info!

    EDIT:
    So, will the bottom (or top?) screen actually be turned OFF in single screen mode? Save on battery life a little? That would be pretty rad. (doubt it. but still, nice idea...)

    I guess so. I don't have any clue how they will handle the bottom screen when playing single-screen mode.

    This looks great!....


    But, I'm like 12 hours in to the SNES version on EMU...

    Looks like I will try it after it gets released, unless by magic someone makes a SNES CT to DS CT save converter... (Dreams)

    I hope they keep a lot of the original translation intacted, especially the names i.e. Ozzie, Slash, and Flea.

    Played the SNES version in English, looking forward to playing the DS version in Japanese, even if I have to wait three days longer than you guys.

    Ah well, I got Namco X Capcom and Front Mission 5 [​IMG]

    I wonder if it's actually a straight port or not...

    Would be nice if they put the cut content back in (Such as some of the areas and music).

    The chances of getting removed content = slim.
    The chances of getting content no one asked for or wanted = win.
    The chances that everyone will end up playing it anyway = ?
    This post = profit.

    Funny thing is, a lot of the removed music was still in the ROM file.

    Would be extreme if a few of the cut areas were put in though (Although, wasn't there a mention of a bonus dungeon or something?).

    I can dream.

    Aha, so the single screen mode the representative at E3 spoke of has been confirmed. As of E3 it was only a possibility.

    The first press release stated it as a bonus dungeon. The latest press release states it as bonus dungeons.

    It doesn't mean "lots of" bonus dungeons, it just means there might be more than one.
