Oh I plan to. But it's the SFC version for me. That's the casual choice.

That version is prettier...and it is missing an ultra-difficult bonus dungeon exclusive to the GBC port (which I still didn't unlock after spending dozens of hours with the game)...so...you are probably right. :wink:

I've been really into 8-bit console RPGs lately. It's quite the trip. I think so many are overlooked these days in favor of the 16-bit stuff.

Fun fact: every NES/Famicom RPG has a walkthrough on GameFAQs, with one exception (Momotarou Densetsu Gaiden).

I read somewhere that the bonus dungeon requires having all the hidden medals in order to access it... that doesn't sound like much fun, tracking all those down.

The GBC version is still casual compared to the NES version by a mile.

That is true. Unlocking the monster medal dungeon in the GBV version is a tremendous time-consuming pain (which is why I didn't do it). The other bonus dungeon - which is available in both the SFC and GBC versions - is absent in the NES release, however...and that dungeon really kicks the challenge into high gear. (After defeating the last boss in the main campaign, I thought my party was pretty strong and well-developed. It was wiped out by the second random encounter in the bonus dungeon, however. :lol: )

That sounds like my experience after beating Etrian Odyssey and stepping foot into its post-game Claret Hollows stratum.

Bwahahahaha! And you didn't even get to the room with the maze of invisible holes that drop you into a floor that's nearly entirely damage squares.

That was my immediate thought as well. (And no, I haven't forgotten about Dela mode yet! Figure I'm going to take Phantasy Star out either tonight or tomorrow.)

Dela Mode is so worth doing, you won't regret it!
