SQUARE ENIX SHIPS REMASTERED "FINAL FANTASY II".

Square Enix, Inc., Los Angeles, the publisher of Square Enix(TM) interactive entertainment products in North America, has announced that FINAL FANTASY(R) II, completely remastered exclusively for the PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) system, is now shipping to retail outlets across North America.

FINAL FANTASY II is a timeless classic that created the blueprint for the future of RPGs. The anniversary edition contains the best treatment of the classic RPG and features all-new character art, updated graphics, new dungeons, full 16:9 widescreen presentation, an enhanced soundtrack with music by Nobuo Uematsu and an updated camera view that gives players a new vantage point on one of the greatest RPGs ever made.

"FINAL FANTASY II started with a dream to create a video game that tied together a vibrant world of fantasy with an intriguing storyline and dynamic characters," said Executive Producer Shinji Hashimoto. "This remastered edition of FINAL FANTASY II features updated graphics and all of the characters, enemies, towns and environments have been redrawn to create the most visually stunning version of FINAL FANTASY II ever. We hope that fans will enjoy this watershed entry in this beloved franchise."

The complex storyline of FINAL FANTASY II circles around a malevolent emperor who has called upon monsters from a demonic realm to take over the world, ending what seemed to be an eternal period of peace. Thousands of lives succumb to their attacks, leaving many children orphaned. From the destruction rise four young survivors who will take it upon themselves to stop the merciless ruler and avenge the death of their parents.

Originally released in Japan in 1987, the FINAL FANTASY franchise has been hailed by gamers and critics as one of the first RPGs to create a fantasy world that captured the imagination of players around the globe. Each game has brought new worlds and characters together with impressive graphics and storylines that have evolved into a one-of-a-kind series with a massive worldwide following. With unique characters, vast worlds and compelling storylines, the FINAL FANTASY series has generated its own subculture with the release of 30 console, online and handheld games, two CG-animated films and 49 music soundtracks worldwide.
