Final Fantasy II Boxset

I've just got hold of a gorgeous Final Fantasy II Wonderswan boxset!

For those that don't know, Final Fantasy is a hugely popular RPG franchise from Square Enix which has appeared on almost every console format going, as well as in online games, mobile phones and has also been the subject of two full length movies.

It was the success of Final Fantasy I and II on Wonderswan that helped the console get an 8% share of the handheld market. To mark the release of these landmark titles, Bandai released a couple of boxsets.

Inside the boxset is a special white Final Fantasy edition of the Wonderswan color, a copy of the Final Fantasy game and a Final Fantasy premium phone strap.













The console itself has a Final Fantasy illustration above the screen, and the words "And, we meet in the truth" - in English, interestingly.

The console has a matt finish and feels a bit more weighty than the SwanCrystal. It actually feels more satisfying in the hand I have to say.

I managed to get this box set from eBay and they seem to come up fairly often, so keep your eyes peeled if you too want to get a white box of Wonderswan loveliness.

    If anybody has any friends in Japan willing to do some digging these boxsets can be found really cheaply in many of the shops there. They look really nice - congrats on the purchase!
