If you want to learn more about the game, there’s also this interview of Noriyushi Fujimoto (Producer), from Nintendo Life. It tackles various topics, including whether or not the size and scale of the game was an issue when remaking it for the Nintendo 3DS, how much RPGs have changed since the release of the original version, Nintendo’s involvement in the localisation, and more.

Here’s an excerpt:

With Nintendo, we were able to work it out and work hand-in-hand and make it happen together. To be completely blunt, it’s like Nintendo took half of the bill!
