According to the magazine Retro Gamer, the game is loosely based on the cancelled Seiken Densetsu: the Emergence of Excalibur for the Famicom Disk System.


Seiken Densetsu was remade as Sword of Mana for Game Boy Advance.


Final Fantasy Adventure is not a main entry in the Final Fantasy series. In reality, it is the first game in the Seiken Densetsu (Holy Sword Legend) series.
