0050: "Penny Arcade"

Postby Kaijyuu » Wed May 13, 2009 3:12 am UTC

Alt Text: Of course, Penny Arcade has already mocked themselves for this. They don't care.

I make a topic about this comic to point out a horrific mistake. This is terrible, and causes me extreme disappointment. How could such an obvious mistake slip through the cracks?

"Seiken Densetsu" is actually a 1991 Game Boy game that went under the name of Final Fantasy Legend in the US and Mystic Quest in Europe. (pretty good game, too)
"Seiken Densetsu 2" is the name of the 1995 SNES RPG of legend.

Terrible. Just terrible.

Actually, Makai Toushi Sa·Ga was named The Final Fantasy legend in the United States and beyond. Seiken Densetsu was Final Fantasy Adventure, and later rereleased on Gameboy Advance as Sword of Mana.

Seiken Densetsu 2, of course, is better known as Secret of Mana, and was released in 1994.

All of which, I'm sure, is part of the joke.

Hence, the alt text.

In an effort to prove just how horrendously geeky I am, I would like to point out that, contrary to earlier replies to this thread, the game he is referring to is Seiken Densetsu 3; a game which was, in fact, released in 1995.

But it was never released for the Super Nintendo. It was released for the Super Famicom, the Japanese version of the venerable system.

It's a pretty good game though.
