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 3.4, the eighth release of this hack. This release strictly addresses bugs from earlier versions.

Thank you to everyone who tries the hack!

A perfect example of remaking Final Fantasy VI the way it was intended to be.

Reviewed By: thepatrickinator on 31 May 2017

This is a perfect example of adding unused content and changing the story in the game to show what the original Final Fantasy VI should have intended to be. Final Fantasy VI is still a masterpiece, but it’s great to see General Leo survive Kefka’s attack on Thamasa as we finally get to see what happened if General Leo didn’t die in Final Fantasy VI. This is what Square should have done all those years ago. And now, people finally get to see General Leo kill Kefka making it an moment they’ll never forget. General Leo is upgraded to a full fledged playable character whereas Shadow is nerfed to guest character status. Leo can now change equipment and armor, can equip relics and Espers, can learn spells, has a unique Desperation Attack, has his own “rejoining” scenario in the World of Ruin, and has his own scene during the ending. He obviously functions as the “Easy Type” version of Final Fantasy VI.

Not only that, it adds 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.

I appreciate the effort fedorajoe puts into making this wonderful Final Fantasy VI hack. Well done!
