General Leo Edition

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

This hack alters events of the game such that General Leo joins the party after the events at Thamasa in the World of Balance. The story has been tweaked in various ways so that this development makes sense in context. Shadow is demoted to “guest character” status in order to make room for Leo.

Leo is a fully-realized party member. His gear can be changed, he can equip relics and Espers, he can learn spells, he has a unique Desperation Attack, he has his own “rejoining” scenario in the World of Ruin, and he has his own scene during the ending.

Other changes include: new scenes and more screen time for minor characters, many new equipment items, the restoration of the dummied rages, modified shops and treasure chest contents, and more.

We are currently on Version 3.3, the seventh release of this hack. This release introduces new minor/optional story content, new townspeople, corrections to typos and minor graphical glitches, and other small adjustments. Please see the readme for details. And thank you to everyone who tried this hack!

A great hack making a gamer's dream come true !

Reviewed By: Ligeia on 19 Nov 2014

Just finished playing this hack, and it is just great, and does exactly what you expect it to do: promote General Leo from supporting cast to main cast. It is very well introduced and will allow you to replay the game with a fresh feel.

My only complaint is that the hacker sacrificed Shadow to make room for Leo, and while I understand the technical reasons for doing so, I would have rather replaced Strago or Relm (Relm dying instead of Leo could even have served as a great new development for Shadow).

Go and play it now !
