Return of the Dark Sorcerer

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

Return of the Dark Sorcerer is a very large Final Fantasy VI hack that’s been in development for many years. It has had quite a few different hands on to help get it to where it is today.

This highly personalized modification of the original game promises to showcase some of the challenging aspects of FFVI hacking, as well as plenty of fun and exciting new content – from an all new cast of playable characters with customized movesets, a radically changed story with new and edited events, new overworld maps, a custom soundtrack, music player, a difficulty selection, a font change option, lots of new battle scripts for monsters & bosses, assembly changes, and tons of spritework.

Best FF6 Hack of 2016

Reviewed By: break on 23 Aug 2016

Gosh this game has a lot of neat updates !!

New allies, new enemies, and new battle animations/events ^_^”

If you have played the original FF6, but wanted a bit more out of the game…this is the perfect hack to try out.

With version 1.6.0, you can now select the difficulty of the game…so now you can have a fun time with new game +

Again, if you have a lazy weekend and want to get absorbed in a RPG…do give this rom hack a try.

Version 1.6.0 Recommended - Yes
