A Godsend!

This is just absolutely genius! I have always been jealous of the Japanese FDS Version having a save feature.

Now you don’t have to enter a long obnoxious code that by the time you enter you don’t feel like playing at that point anyway. This is highly recommended for those of you that hate passwords. I hope to see this become available on more games in the future! Just pure excellence!
