Did You Know?


In the original English translation for the Super NES version of Final Fantasy IV (released in the U.S. as Final Fantasy II), much of the dialogue was altered to tone down or eliminate cursing and sexual references. When the game was later re-released in the U.S. on the Sony Playstation, the dialogue was given a more accurate translation. (See "Alternate Versions".) However, one particular line from the SNES release, Tellah's insult, "You spoony bard!", was left in tact, as the line had become iconic over the years despite, or perhaps due to its origin as a uniquely bizarre attempt at censoring a Japanese line somewhat equivalent to 'you son of a bitch'.

Final Fantasy II in the US. Probably the best RPG ever.
15 October 1999 | by (Idaho, USA) – See all my reviews

Final Fantasy II is probably the best RPG in existence. I've played it through numerous times and it has been an exciting adventure every time. The story is truly one to be recognized. Cecil, a dark knight, betrays his country once he feels that it's direction has turned more towards evil. During his quest to retaliate, he must face trials that bring him to learn that his ties between the ultimate evil and the ultimate good are more than he could have ever imagined. An excellent cast of characters and a musical score that is absolutely fantastic. A story that should be told again and again. Should be a movie by now.
