It’s here! A new entry in the Final Fantasy series is finally coming! Let’s watch the trailer and then I’ll tell you what I think of the coming PS5 title.
Welcome to The Magical Land of Wozz!
I first heard of this game through davidvinc on Youtube (a favorite gayming vlogger for me and my partner). I’ve really been feeling retro JRPGs recently, so I decided to give it a go and I’m excited to start this adventure!
The Magical Land of Wozz (Chou Mahou Tairiku WOZZ, 超魔法大陸WOZZ) is a Japanese role-playing game that was developed by Red Company in 1995 for the Super Famicom/SNES. There was no official western release, but Translation Corporation released a fan translation in 2014 and through the magical powers of the internet, the western audience gets to experience this game! Thanks Translation Corp!
The story is set in the fantasy land of Wozz and revolves around three young heroes summoned by the wizard Sullivan to defeat the evil Balam and stop him from further corrupting the realm. The game utilizes a classic turn-based battle system with the player selecting actions from a menu. There is also an option to set your non-main party members with AI functions to reduce player input during battle. Like most other RPGs from this time, travel is done via the character sprite walking around the overworld map and quick travel can be done through TELEPA phone booths once you unlock them. Overall, the game is pretty standard for JRPGs and I’m here for it. Let’s jump in!
