Originally, Final Fantasy II came out for the Nintendo Famicom (Japan's equivalent to the Nintendo Entertainment System). It was then remade on the Japanese-only Wonderswan Color with brand new 16 bit graphics, new cutscenes, and a cleaned up interface. The Playstation version was then released internationally as an even further improved port of the Wonderswan Color version with higher resolution graphics and a brand new soundtrack. The game was not released in the U.S. until it was included in the Playstation compilation entitled Final Fantasy Origins, along with an improved port of the original Final Fantasy. See more
