Final Fantasy V makes its first U.S. appearance on a Nintendo platform with this enhanced remake of 1992's Super Famicom title. The storyline follows a party of four valiant adventurers on a worldly quest to find a missing king, stop an army of marauding beasts, and reunite the legendary elemental crystals with their kingdom guardians. Players will board ships, hop on bird-like chocobos, ride dragons, and more while crossing diverse landscapes and encountering random battles with an assortment of creatures. Updates to the original game include reorganized menu screens, new dialogue, and sound improvements.
Final Fantasy V continues the play style found in previous installments while incorporating a job system, which lets players customize the party's abilities and skills at any time by assigning each hero two distinct roles. Four more jobs have been added to the handheld version, including the necromancer, bomber, gladiator, and prophet classes, bringing the total number to 25. Also new is a 30-level dungeon filled with deadlier monsters and powerful items. Final Fantasy V Advance is the third Final Fantasy RPG remake on GBA after 2004's Final Fantasy I & II and 2005's Final Fantasy IV Advance. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
