DescriptionLunar: Eternal Blue Complete is a remake of the SEGA CD game Lunar: Eternal Blue.
Similarly to the remake of the first game in the series, this version features reworked, 32-bit graphics. The anime-style cutscenes of the original have turned into similarly styled movies. Some cutscenes have been removed from the remade version; however, many of the remaining scenes have been expanded.
A few dungeons are absent in the remake, while a few others were added. Dungeon design have been somewhat simplified compared to the original version. Some monsters (in particular a number of bosses) have a different visual design.
The most notable gameplay-related change in the remake is the absence of random battles. Enemies are now visibly walking on the screen and can be avoided. Enemy encounters on the world map have been eliminated completely.
- "Lunar 2: Eternal Blue" -- Saturn title
- "ルナ２ エターナルブルー" -- Japanese spelling

TriviaWorking Designs usually does a bang-up job of English translations for their games, and this game is no exception. Like the first game, there are many pop culture references in the dialogue, and one of my favorites is at the beginning of the third disc. Talk to a certain villager in the town you start out in (I forget which villager exactly), and he'll say:
"They told us to keep the faith, but I think I'm losing my religion! Oh, no, I've said too much...I haven't said enough..."
[Note: The reference here is from a song called "Losing My Religion" by the rock group R.E.M., the lyrics "Oh, no, I've said too much/I haven't said enough" are from the song.]
