    I'm a pretty big fan of the Lufia games. At least the SNES games and such. There's a new title in the series coming now. Details are few at the moment, all we have is two bits of art, and no system confirmation. Lufia has never been on a non-nintendo system though, so i'd expect DS or Wii. If I had to hazard a guess, i'm betting DS. Anyways, titles will be unveiled next Famitsu, but here's some art for ya-

    I dunno, but the second image reminds me of DS with its vertical orientation... We do assume Square Enix is set to publish the game though. Looking forward to this.

    If it's for DS it's going to be amazing. If not, maybe too. [​IMG]

    There are so many great DS games right now. But another one cannot hurt..

    What a nice news !
    I'm waiting for it, and hope it will be like the Snes RPG.
    I played and finished only the SNES episodes, I didn't like the GBA one.

    Most likely for the DS, but a real RPG for the wii would be nice too [​IMG]

    Wow, a new Lufia game? Although I haven't beaten any of em, Lufia 2 still have some of my favorite battle music in any RPG game.

    I've played and beaten all 4 games, and enjoyed them pretty much. I hope this one takes place after 3, since that's currently the furthest story in the timeline. I'm also hoping it would explain who Arek is, as he's been the biggest mystery of the series since 2.

    As for what system this game will be going to, I hope it's either the PSP or DS. Although it's true that the game has only been on Nintendo systems so far, don't forget that the cancelled project Ruins Chaser (Or whatever that title's called, that 3 was supposed to be) was supposed to be released on the PS1.

    Well, let us all just hope it's better than Ruins of Lore. That one was so bad I couldn't even finish it.
    Lufia 2 is still my favorite game ever and the legend returns is without a doubt my favorite gbc game.

    Really? Ruins of Lore wasn't that bad. I'm beginning to think people just didn't like it because it wasn't about Sinistrals, and it was heavily focused on dungeon crawling. Well I'll admit the battle system was flawed in one area, where if your characters are much faster than the enemy, you have to input their battle commands twice and yet they only execute the last one you make.

    At least the game introduced a job system to the series, as well as having blacksmiths make items for you when the recipe for said item is found.

    Story was bad, battles were repetitive, no variety. They butchered the music with horrible remixes.
    I will admit that I still played the game until I got to the final boss, but only because I'm a big fan of the series. However when I found that I had absolutely no chance of beating the boss without an excessive amount of grinding I gave up on the game.

    Battles have always been repetitive in the series. And what do you mean by no variety? As for the story, yes it was full of cliches and stuff like the generic bad guy looking for power to rule the world, but at least the game itself still had the feel of Lufia despite the absence of Sinistrals.

    As for the music, the only remix I can recall is the battle theme that was done for both the Ancient Cave and the regular, and it wasn't bad. A lot of people I know who's played the game actually liked it, since it brought out the Lufia 2 nostalgia in them.

    I wonder though if i'm the only one who really remembers and loves the FIRST Lufia game. Lufia Fortress of Doom. I loved the music especially, absolutely awesome. It was a lot different from the rest of the series, but i quite like it. [​IMG]

    I did enjoy it somewhat but since I've played 2 first, it kind of destroyed it for me due to the differences between the two game.

    I played 2 after 1, and I enjoyed it being the prequel, finding all the references to the previously played game was fun.
    I never played the GBC, I think I'll have to correct that mistake if it's the 1st game story sequel [​IMG]

    I didn't like GBA because of the battle system, that was weird to capture and fusion monster (as far as I remember), I was waiting for a Snes RPG type game.
