Lufia - The Legend Returns ROM

Lufia - The Legend Returns rom

When focusing on the main objectives, Lufia - The Legend Returns is about 30 Hours in length. If you're a gamer that strives to see all aspects of the game, you are likely to spend around 40 Hours to obtain 100% completion.

The recommended party is:

Wain (the hero), Randolph, and Deckard: They have Red Spiritual Force, which increases attack for themselves and anyone in the same column or row. And Wain is the main character, so he seems to be pretty good overall.

Mousse: He gets his own turn. You can't control him, but you still get three actions plus whatever he chooses to do

Egg Dragon: Red Spiritual Force AND gets his own action every turn.

Aima: Aima is an absolute beast. Her raw attack and HP are amazing, and she gets great IPs like ScatterMist.

You can fill the other three spots with spellcasters.

Lufia: The Legend Returns, known as Estpolis Denki: Yomigaeru Densetsu in Japan, is a role-playing video game for the Game Boy Color developed by Neverland and published by Taito, Natsume, and Ubi Soft in Japan, North America, and Europe, respectively, in 2001. It is the third game in the Lufia series and the first one to appear on a handheld gaming system. Lufia: The Legend Returns takes places one hundred years after the events of Lufia & the Fortress of Doom which is two hundred years after the events of Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals.

The game begins by outlining the “Doom Island Wars” (the events of the first two Lufia games) and goes on to explain how four all-powerful beings known as the Sinistrals were defeated by a hero named Maxim and his three companions two hundred years ago, and then again by his descendant one hundred years ago. This game follows the trials and tribulations of a teenager named Wain, who is actually a descendant of Maxim himself. When a mysterious woman arrives in his village one day looking for a “swordsman”, she runs into Wain on the street and asks if he is any good as a fighter.

Unconvinced that Wain is the best that the village has to offer, the woman sends him away, and Wain goes outside the village to vent his anger on unsuspecting monsters. Lufia: The Legend Returns is similar to other games in the series, with role-playing video game elements like random battles. It uses the series’ “IP System”: special skills are not tied to character equipment. Instead, characters gain new special abilities (called “IP Skills”), by finding Ancient Texts hidden within various dungeons throughout the game. To use those abilities, they must obtain the requisite amount of Spiritual Force (or “SF”).

Much of the game takes place on the Battle Screen, where the player’s characters will engage enemies ranging from low-level Red Jellies to sea creatures and evil gods. Even though nine characters can take part in a battle, only three of them may attack per turn, one per vertical column. Characters in the top row will do more damage when attacking enemies, but will also receive more damage; those in the back row will receive less damage, but also deal less. In order to make the most of these three turns, the player is able to move the characters around the Battle Screen in between rounds. In this way, it is possible to revolve characters around the field in order to make the most of their different abilities.
