Final Fantasy 3: Divergent Paths - The 3 Scenarios

Hack of Final Fantasy III

Description:

FF3 - Divergent Paths - The 3 Scenarios, is a storyline and event hack that rewrites the “3 Scenarios” chapter of the game into a more naturally-flowing story. It starts with something simple: Edgar jumps from the raft to save his brother. From there, the divergent paths of the characters tell a unified story in 3 parts, each which foreshadows future character development.

SABIN and EDGAR: The brothers wash ashore next to the military camp, and witness Kefka’s poisoning of Doma. They aid CYAN, and then must travel through the Phantom Forest to get to the Nikeah ferry, hoping to deliver warning to Narshe in time.

TERRA and BANON: These two are knocked off course by Ultros, and are sent over Barren Falls. They wash up on the Veldt, where they must befriend GAU and travel the Serpent Trench so that they can get TERRA to the Esper before the Empire invades.

LOCKE: Locke infiltrates South Figaro, where he meets CELES, who is defecting from the Empire. Locke must sneak CELES OUT of South Figaro and IN to Narshe to deliver information that might save the city. SHADOW tags along for reasons that he does not disclose.

This patch is incorporated into the full Final Fantasy: Divergent Paths patch, which gives the same treatment to other portions of the story.

Enjoyable Change

Reviewed By: doctorzack on 04 Jul 2020

Straight forward as presented. Dialogue is fairly dictated (not changed to be edgy or modern). Changes are made to the overworld to reflect the changes to the divergence. (Example, the Ghost Railway/Forest is North of Doma).

I greatly enjoyed the inclusion of Edgar on Sabin’s journey. Unlike Shadow (who isn’t even necessary) Edgar and Sabin take turns playing foil to Sabin; Edgar being the one who is the techno-phile to Cyan’s techno-phobe.

Minor Text Error: Banon replaces Sabin for the Veldt dialogue with Gau. One or two of his dialogue boxes still showcase the speaker as Sabin. Other than that the game, once patched, played just as normal.
