This game is one of the best games I have played in such a long time. A cross breed between Zelda and Pokemon is one of the best combinations ever. The graphics and artwork they do with Studio Ghibli is simply fantastic.
I played and enjoyed most final fantasy series, with the exception of FF-XIII. I have played many other RPG and enjoyed them. While this game in the genre, it is very different than other RPGs in both style and story telling. The style is very similar to Howl's moving castle, Poyo, etc and in deed the game was collaborated on by the same studio that worked on the anime. Best JRPG in a LONG LONG time.
