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.
