Description

Lunar: 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.

Trivia

The U.S. version of Lunar 2: Eternal Blue, while an awesome game, is also well known for its massive collection of pack-ins that are packaged with the game. Some of the pack-ins include a full size scale of Lucia's pendant (which is also very heavy), a small collection of character standees, a cloth map, a soundtrack CD, and a "Making Of" CD, all in a large cardboard, foil stamped box. Also, if you were one of the lucky people who pre-ordered at stores like Software Etc. and Electronic Boutique, you could also get a cool Ghaleon punching puppet with the game! Talk about your cool bonuses!
