The Australian classification board gives away Square Enix's next digital port.
Back in the early 90's, as part of then-Squaresoft's efforts to expand the console-style RPG market, an "entry-level" RPG was created specifically for English-speaking gamers. Titled Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest, the hope that was by forgoing the difficulty of Dragon Quest and the main Final Fantasy series, while also streamlining and simplifying the game's core mechanics, people traditionally not interested in RPGs would give the game a chance.
Now, nearly twenty years later, Mystic Quest is set to return via the Wii's Virtual Console. While the port hasn't been officially confirmed at the time of this posting, the Australian ratings board has approved the game for release with Nintendo marked as its publisher. As Super Nintendo games are typically 800 Wii Points ($8), perhaps another new generation of non- and casual-gamers can soon be introduced to the RPG genre with a simple impulse purchase?
