What do you need to know about Lufia?

Sometimes, RPG series people love are lost to the sands of time. The developers that made them go out of business, other companies decide they are not profitable and age leads to them not getting a digital rerelease via a platform like the Virtual Console. Lufia is one of these series. But, while it is difficult to accumulate a complete collection of these games and get into them now, it is not impossible and many installments are worth your time.

I remember playing part one and two for SNES.

The SNES was seriously in a class of it's own back then.

Could not agree more. Pretty well anyone who wanted to play RPG's on a console had to get a SNES. To be fair the Sega Megadrive/Genesis had a decent collection of RPG's as well so having both consoles gave you the best of all worlds.

Lufia came in two parts.
1) Lufia & The Fortress of Doom
2) Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals

What is interesting is that Lufia II is actually a precursor to Lufia so if you really wanted linearity it would have been better to play Lufia II first.

BTW. There was a game called "Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals" which was a Nintendo DS remake of "Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals".

I think I remember playing Lufia 2 and realizing it came before part one.
