The Final Fantasy Legend/Gameplay

Being a SaGa game, the gameplay is a bit unconventional, noticeably in the battle system, items, and in 'leveling up'. These are the key differences from a typical RPG.

  • Items break after a certain number of uses.
  • Characters level up in different ways depending on their type.

Both of these affect battles.

In other respects, the gameplay is just like any other RPG from the era. Characters walk around in an overhead perspective, battles are random, stores sell you items for gold, and characters can heal their wounds at inns.
