ReCast FF3: War of the Magitek

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

ReCast is a ’standing on shoulders’ half-hack that assembles various material created by members of the FF3SNES hacking community. Originally intended as a simple graphics patch to fix FF3’s combat art clash, ReCast has grown into a “vanillish” scenario adjustment, making Banon a more prominent character and adding a second story split to the latter half of the game to adjust Ruin pacing. Several characters are rewritten and some scenes are expanded or moved to different parts of the game (such as “Taming of the Gau” being moved to the World of Balance).

Additionally, spells were changed and natural magic was given to more characters. Enemies were made vulnerable to more status ailments and the Zombie status had its mechanics altered. This isn’t intended to be a major re-balance of combat or a hard-type patch, so the difficulty of the game should be roughly comparable to the original (it is slightly harder).
