Hi Christian -

I have forwarded your report to our title editors for review.  When I hear back on the status I will post the information here.

Hi Christian,

I don't blame you for thinking this, it's certainly one of the more confusing examples of the Westernisation of Japanese games - and the incorrectly attached images certainly don't help!

The Final Fantasy II - detailed here is the second incarnation of the long running Japanese series which was released on the NES in 1988, whereas the Final Fantasy II shown here is actually the 4th in the series which appeared on the Super NES in 1991. As the 2nd and 3rd games of the series did not originally get a Western release, in order to avoid confusing audiences, Final Fantasy IV was rebranded as II.

If you look at the Original Titles for both of these, you can see the distinction in the Japanese text but I grant you that the English titles both saying Final Fantasy II is confusing. It did not help matters that we had accepted an image of the US release of IV on the page for the original II, but this has now been rectified.

Hope that clears it up, and thanks again for your post!

Jay
