Welcome to the first episode of Nintendo Watcher Plays: Final Fantasy, a years-long dive into the entire mainline Final Fantasy series of JRPGS. Justin and Matthew play through the iconic franchise to figure out what works and what doesn’t.
In order to understand how the JRPG genre has evolved since the 1980s, the Watchers will play through the entire series in chronological order and discuss their thoughts on each entry.
First up: Final Fantasy I (1987)
How does this fledgling entry hold-up in 2023? Do the Watchers see why it was able to save a floundering Squaresoft? What is the ideal party composition?
Give it a listen and find out.
Plus, Justin and Matthew discuss their game recommendations of the week.
