Final Fantasy Legend II was the second Final Fantasy released for the Nintendo Gameboy and the second installment to the SaGa series. The game was headed by most of staff that helped make The Final Fantasy Legend, but this time they were much more involved and development took longer. Due to its popularity and being a cult fan favorite, Square re-released it in Japan (titled as SaGa 2: Goddess of Destiny) on the Nintendo DS in 2009 with upgraded graphics. The game was very well-received and was even ranked in the top 100 games of all time in a 2006 poll conducted by Japanese magazine Famitsu.

Final Fantasy Legend II features eight different characters that journey to discover the secret of the "Magi", a powerful substance created by the gods. Players must collect enough "Magi" in each area in order to advance to the next world.


Once, there was a magical statue of the Goddess Isis -- but the statue was shattered into 77 pieces, called Magi, and the Magi were scattered to the ends of the Earth. A young boy's father is a Magi Hunter, one who seeks the lost pieces of the statue. But one day the father doesn't return ... and the boy, with the help of his friends, must set off to find his father and solve the mystery of the Magi...
