UGHHH STOP TALKING ABOUT ANY OF THE OTHER LUFIA GAMES
YOU DONT UNDERSTAND
AH HOW DO I EXPLANE
Okay, but really, Lufia 2 is high-caliber RPG goodness. You should not think of or remember any GBA or DS versions. It's like a better version of Fortress of Doom but with those adorable SNES graphics we all used to love with all the color and stuff. And the story is in the same canon. How could you not want to play it?
If you loved Fortress of Doom, as you say... You owe it to yourself to play Lufia 2.
I own a Suitcase and a Melli and a Lizzy.
