I meant more from a gameplay standpoint, in that all the features are there, and a few that you wouldn't expect graphically are also there (the monster sprites). It plays just as well as the SFC version. I completely agree, though, that it really can't match up graphically, but it sure does try considering the platform it's on. Consider it a happy medium between the NES version and the SFC.

The SFC version is one of the prettiest SNES RPGs out there, although it doesn't quite match up to Chrono Trigger. It's definitely around the level of FFIII/VI, though.

I'm more excited for the 3DS version. Gotta have those retro graphics.

It's kind of crazy cool they've made a game with three entirely different coats of paint.

8-4 Play kind of sold me on the PS4 version, but seriously yeah they all look amazing.

So hyped for the PS4 version. Whenever I have a Switch may get it for that instead just for the ability to have it on the go.

88. Kendo Rage | SNES | 1993 | 6/10

Here's a breezy side scrolling platformer starring a teenage girl, if you're into that sort of thing. Josephine must use her psychic powers and bamboo sword skills to fend off ghosts, monsters, and wildlife. Why? I don't know. There's a plot here that I didn't pay attention to. Why? Because the localization has some of the most cheesy cringe dialogue I've ever seen, that's why. So you run, you jump, you kill baddies, nothing new here. Graphically Kendo Rage is decent, it's got a nice clean cutesy vibe going on. The music is peppy but kinda annoying. Levels are short and simple, with boss fights much the same. Kendo Rage is over before you know it, I beat this game in about twenty minutes. It's rather easy sans the boss rush at the end, but even that wasn't too bad. Kendo Rage would have been good as a rental back in the 90s, but little else. It did teach me not to trust Japanese guys with green hair though.

Yeah I already downloaded those. But I think they're fighters, not platformers. Not that fighters aren't OK.

I figured your weeb ass already knew about these. My post was more of a public service announcement.
