Final Fantasy II © 1988 Square Company, Limited.
Fantasy role-playing video game. Second installment of the Final Fantasy series. The game's story centers on four youths whose parents were killed during an army invasion by the empire of Palamecia, who are using hellspawn to conquer the world. Three of the four main characters join a rebellion against the empire, embarking on missions to gain new magic and weapons, destroy enemy superweapons, and rescue leading members of the resistance.
GAME ID: SQF-FY
Final Fantasy II was released on December 17, 1988 in Japan.
During the development of the first installment in the series, Square's management decided to manufacture 400,000 copies of the game to make a sequel possible. As there were no concrete ideas for Final Fantasy II from the start, it was eventually taken in a new direction and included none of the previous game's characters or locations.
In April 1989, the game was novelized by its original scenario writer Kenji Terada under the title Final Fantasy II: Muma no Meiky? (lit. The Labyrinth of Nightmares). It was published in Japan exclusively by Kadokawa Shoten.
