    First trailer is out for the Lufia 2 DS remake. The game is a remake of the SNES classic, Lufia 2 (which was actually a prequel anyways, so they scrapped the 2). The DS version is now an action RPG, but has the original staff working on it. I'll let the trailer talk-



    Coming 2-25-10 in Japan. No word on a US release, but it's possible.

    bwuh.. I actually love ds remakes. Lufia is one of my favourite series (Well it's not the best but god damn if I didn't spend whole weekends playing the first.)

    Is it just me or does this not at all remotely even FEEL like a remake of Rise of the sinistrals?

    Okay.. wait. Read the wiki:
    "Starring Maxim, a young monster hunter blessed with impressive and mysterious powers, the game features him and his friends on a quest to uncover what lurks behind the Wave Device, an object that grants the user godlike powers. As in Lufia II, the game will feature dungeons that focus heavily on puzzle-solving; unlike Lufia II, the gameplay is now action-RPG in style, with the player controlling Maxim directly in battle and switching between characters by tapping their portrait on the bottom screen."


    So it's not correct to call this a remake at all, instead it's a complete reboot of the series keeping none of the old story. Also is Gadess essentially supposed to be Gades? (One of the Sinistrals)

    The trailer is so radically different from the original Lufia 2. I can't even comment on it at this point, I'll wait til I see more.

    Still not feeling Maxim's new design, but that's just me being picky.

    I personally don't care if this game doesn't look like a remake of Lufia since I never played it, and this game looks great. I think it will be great, cos I loved the ARPG games on the DS like FFCC and Avalon Code.

    Can't wait.

    We can call it what we want. It's a remake, re-imagining, whatever. No one gives a damn what it is. And it looks pretty awesome anyways.

    rocking... i wish they add many FMV scenes
    the gameplay seems like revamped FFCC with increments
    graphically looks very nice and i hope its long though u cant change much since its a remake of the SNES title (snes titles used to rock when it came to storylines)
    again FEB/MAR will be a month of greatness

    Lufia 2 is one of my favorite games, but this isn't very appealing. I don't like how it's an action-rpg. For that matter, I don't recognize anything from the SNES version in the trailer...I'll stick to the SNES version, I think. I hope they use all the original music, though.

    this game looks so damn great:. didn't play the original plot, but am happy that they make a action rpg out of it, will be more fun:. looks like square enix are improving their handcraft with each game, an are pressing more and more out of the graphic chip of the ds:. if the final game looks like that, ffcc won't be a match
