Proto:Final Fantasy VI

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to: navigation, search
This page details one or more prototype versions of Final Fantasy VI.

A prototype of Final Fantasy III on the SNES, which was released by snesmaster. The game has already been fully localized and only has minor differences compared to the retail version, mostly corrections to typos in the script.

(Source: SNES Central, for everything mentioned in this article.)

General Differences

The black and white splash screen with the title logo and copyright information is not present in this prototype. The game immediately goes to the title sequence, like the Japanese version.

The old guy who alludes to Umaro after defending the Esper sobered up for the final version. This is the only script difference that isn't a correction to a typo; evidently, Nintendo of America didn't like the implied alcohol reference.
