Lufia II: Age of the Sinistrals

Hack of Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals


Age of the Sinistrals expands on the original game by adding around 70 new spells, including some physical-like techs and passive abilities that even Guy and Dekar can learn. Learning new skills now adds slight increases to stats to allow for some character customization.

A true final boss fight with Guard Daos has been added to the grand finale, but even the regular 4 Sinistrals will put up more of a fight than before.

For those desiring a more challenging experience, a hard mode has been added in place of retry mode (now always unlocked).

More changes:

  • Rings and rocks are now the same equip type and can occupy either of their two slots, e.g. you can wear 2 rings, 2 rocks or 1 each
  • CM can freely switch between all 5(!) classes once unlocked instead of being locked to class 1-4 OR 5
  • Modified CM attacks and AI slightly, e.g. Darbi can now even flee in class 5 and class 4 Flash is more likely to heal when injured

Note: NOT compatible with vanilla savegames!

The major flaw of this hack is that the creator added a bunch of new skills including passives that boost stats, but never bothered to increase the number of total skill slots. He planned on having an option in Merix where you could talk to an NPC that gave you the option to reset & clear all your skills (you can always re-buy them) because all the original skills take up most of your skill slots already, so you may not have room for later skills if you acquire too many early. But the option to reset your skill list only leads to the entire game resetting instead.

I went on the creator’s site & left some feed back about simply expanding the total number of skill slots. Not only did he NOT want to expand the total slots, he actually said he wanted to REDUCE the total number. That was a huge deal breaker for me. Also, he made the boss fights harder, including the 1st fight against Gades (which you can optionally win), which means that the passive stat boosting skills are almost mandatory to survive those fights, which hog up skill slots from later skills.

Version 10 Recommended - No
