Final Fantasy Legend II, originally released in Japan as Sa・Ga2: Hihō Densetsu, is a role-playing video game developed by Square Co. for the Game Boy handheld console as the second game of their SaGa series. Initially released in December 1990 for Japanese audiences, the game was translated and released in North America in November 1991 by Square America Co, and again in 1998 by Sunsoft.

Like its predecessor, the English version was re-branded as a Final Fantasy title due to the series' popularity in the Western world. The game's development was headed by lead designer Akitoshi Kawazu, who had worked on the previous title, with a music staff consisting of Kenji Itō and Nobuo Uematsu. In 2009, an enhanced remake of the game was announced for the Nintendo DS titled SaGa 2: Hihō Densetsu Goddess of Destiny, featuring three-dimensional graphics, new story elements, and an arranged soundtrack.

  • In January 2009, Japanese magazine Shōnen Jump announced that a remake of Final Fantasy Legend II for the Nintendo DS was being developed and directed by Kawazu himself and would feature fully three-dimensional cel-shaded graphics.
  • In an interview with Famitsu magazine, Kawazu stated that he and his team had been planning a remake of the game ever since they remade The Final Fantasy Legend for the WonderSwan Color in 2002, and went ahead with the project now that they felt "the time was right".
  • Youichi Yoshimoto, who had previously worked on Unlimited Saga, was appointed project supervisor, along with Kenji Itō who will be arranging the game's soundtrack.
  • Gen Kobayashi, character designer for Square Enix's The World Ends with You, provides the game's new promotional and character artwork.
  • The remake was produced to add new features but still keep the core story and gameplay of the original, and is designed to retain the Game Boy version's play time of "ten-odd hours" from start to finish, which Kawazu feels is adequate for a handheld role-playing game, stating "This is on a portable system, and for that I think it's better not to have a game you must sit down and play for hours on end, but rather something you can enjoy in small pieces at a time."
  • Unlike the Game Boy version, battles in the Nintendo DS version no longer occur randomly, and were adjusted to be more like later games in the SaGa series where enemies appear on the field screen along with the player and are encountered when touched.
  • Also unlike the original, where a character's stat increases through gaining levels was largely randomized, characters now become stronger in a "less opaque" fashion, with more defined growth tables for each playable character.
  • A multiplayer boss arena will allow up to four players to battle the game's bosses to win various rare items. The game will be released in 2009 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the SaGa series.
  • The game will also be available as part of a limited edition Nintendo DSi bundle.
  • Final Fantasy Legend II has sold an estimated 850,000 copies in Japan since its release in December 1990.
  • In March 2006, the title was voted the 94th best game of all time by the readers of Famitsu magazine as part of its "All Time Top 100" poll.

Endless Ocean 2 is an upcoming scuba diving video game for Wii, and the sequel to Endless Ocean.

  • Endless Ocean 2 features improved graphics and larger explorable areas than the previous game. In contrast to Endless Ocean which featured a single location, Endless Ocean 2 allows players to travel to diving spots around the globe, including new polar and river locations. The plot of the game involves a woman named Oceana and her search for an artifact called the Dragon Stone, but players will be able to ignore it or follow it at their leisure.
  • The ability to dive with a dolphin as a companion returns from the first game, and players will now also be able to ride them to quickly move through the water. Players can also sell salvaged treasure for money that can be used to buy items to decorate reefs and aquariums. Potentially dangerous creatures such as sharks and crocodiles will now illicit a warning for players and may even attack them; players will be able to drive them off using a new tranquilizer-like tool called the Pulsar which calms them down.
  • The game features online co-operative multiplayer that allows communication using the Wii Speak peripheral.
