Working 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.] Add
Did You Know?
In the Japanese version of Lunar 2, there was a very strange bug that could occur while fighting the first Guardian boss in the Blue Spire. Basically, if both Hiro and Gwin were defeated and fell in certain positions in front of the Guardian, the game got stuck in an endless stalemate, because the Guardian couldn't move past Hiro or Gwin (because of the way they fell), and since all Lucia could do was just Defend (remember that she just got zapped by Zophar and was helpless), you basically had to end up reloading the game and hope it didn't happen again. Well, that bug was found by Working Designs and was fixed...sort of. If the above incident happened in the U.S. version, Ruby would end up taking matters into her own hands and would actually start ATTACKING the Guardian until it died!! This is the only boss fight where Ruby will actually attack and kill a boss, and this is only for the U.S. version of the game. Add

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! Add
