Yeah, I was the one cosplaying Lufia. Though I was mad to find out they released new designs not too long after the con; I would have loved to switch it up to the reworked version from Estpolis Mobile...then again my seamstress was busy all last year so I had to go with simple.

I was waiting for that to happen. Also, just because you like men, I am thinking about reserving a page in my art book just for you. ;) The question is what should it be? No porn please.

[EDIT] It's going to be worth seeing a gay guy beat the hell out of someone. At least let me stage the tickets.

Darn, there goes my idea for a giant orgy picture. /sarcasm

But anyway. I thought on it for a while, and I have my request: a drawing of Dekar, but in the outfit on his SNES sprite. This request might come as a bit of a surprise; I bet you were gonna expect me to ask for a shirtless/scantily clad male character. :P The truth is, I've only ever seen pictures of Dekar in his full-on armor from the official works, even in fan art. Since I don't think that I'll be seeing any of him in his simple armor anytime soon, I figured it'd be a good idea to ask you.

Hi, I've returned to the forums, thanks to the new Lufia. ^^°

I'm so hyped, it's scary. I love the redesings, all of them have something from the old artwork, especially Dekar - so different yet familar. :D
Somehow, the more of the new Lufia is shown, the more I am getting the Ruin Chasers-Feeling from. Perhaps they re-use some of their ideas back then then RC was in development.

Oh, and I also want to share a Lufia-dream of mine. >.<°

Last night, I've dreamt I was send back in time, when 16-bit gaming was all new...it was so funny to see little children screaming in the stores as the SNES and the Genesis were popular and had very impressive graphics for their time. XD
When, somehow, I was sent a bit into the future - I was playing The Lands Cursed by the Gods.
It was awesome.
I remember that I haven't eaten for 2 days, just playing the game. I was near the end of the game, the whole party was going to Doom Island. They were outside in a forest on Doom Island, then something happend, I cannot recall it correctly. I remember that Guy was some kind of prince who kept his identity secret and one of his subordinates in a suit with glasses, small and weak, tried to hold him back; Guy was just like "Blablabla, let me party : D!" and kicked that guy. XD
Then something truly important happend:
Jessica and Milka were somehow trapped in a crystal in the sky and told the Maxim and the others that to save the world/destroy Doom Island they had either to sacrifice Jessica, Milka and Selan or...3 Magic Balls (I know...it's weird...) The "balls" were a bit like that obelisk/cubes in the beginning of the trailer. Of course, all of them saved the women und decided to use the balls, which kept somehow (their?) wave energy in it.
EDIT: I forget to describe the Fortress of Doom-Dungeon o_O:
It was very similar to the RotS-counterpart in the beginning. I know that I was locking for some potions, because I didn't have that much of items. As I advanced in the fortress, there were rooms with hundreds of small enemies, but I didn't bother fighting them. In the hall where you met Amon in the Original, there were...little cannons shooting at you. ^^° That's all.

The rest of the dream was not that interesting, my mother called us that lunch was ready and I was like "-________- it is so exciting at the moment, damnit". I remember that during the whole dream I was totally happy becauce the game rocked. ;_;

I was so disappointed to wake up and not having it. XD With the help of a friend of mine, I'm going to import it in february. x.x

How did this thread get so far off topic? Atleast it's Lufia discussion. I will translate the character pages from the official website for people who can't read Japanese. 

Before you read this, just know this was just a quick translation I did. I just read it and translated it as best as I could and still keep the nuances of the Japanese but still make it understandable in English. This being said it doesn't follow English writing rules but this is just a quick translation. If I spent more time on this, it would be much better.

Also, whenever I see the word "Wave Energy" or just "波動" (Hadou), I am going to translate that as Spiritual Force as that is how I think it should be translated if and when the English Version comes out and that is how it was translated when they talked about Wave Energy from the SNES Lufias. I have read some sites though like IGN and places where people translate it as Wave Energy. IMO, Spiritual Force sounds much cooler. I digress.

Maxim:
Age 21
Height: 184cm
Weapon: Sword
Wave Instrument: Wave Instrument of Roaring Fire (轟炎の波動器)
Fighting Style: All Mighty Type

A passionate man with burning red hair and a strong sense of Responsibility and Justice.
Holding within him a strong Spiritual Force that vastly exceeds the ordinary man. As a result, he has been called "The Hero of the Spiritual Force" But of this, he isn't aware at all.
While spending his days making a living as a monster hunter in the city of Elcid, he goes out to discover why he has the power he has.

Selan (Serena in Japanese or Selena)
Age 21
Height: 169 cm
Weapon: Magic Saucer
Wave Instrument: Wave Instrument of the Glacier (氷河の波動器)
Fighting Style: Speedy Type

Packed with Kindness and Strength, she is the Military nation, Parcelyte Republic's Top Soldier.
Her trust in the President runs deep and her name is known throughout the land.
As a result of an incident causing her to think she cannot rely on anyone and must protect everyone, she became as hardened as her responsibility.
Because of this, she has taken many harsh words and is thought of to be a cool headed, harsh boss.

(For Gades, I read the Japanese over and over and over again. He really got a personality change)

Gades:

Living eternally as the God of Destruction.
As Destruction in itself is his confidence in his significance to exist, be it a human, an animal, or a person with strong Spiritual Force, he holds respect for it before he destroys it. On top of destroying the gods on Doom Island and throwing the world into despair, he intends to destroy the world. It seems that his ultimate pursuit is not the destruction of the world, it seems like he has a different motive...

I will post the rest up at a later date but I was shocked to read Gades' character description. They changed his personality completely. I am happy with it though because he was always the least explained Sinistral and in Lufia 3, he didn't sound all that bad. It intrigued me that you could see some difference from Lufia 2 to 3 and now. I can't wait for the game to come out and will translate more later.

Just to leave you salivating for more, guess which weapon they gave Arty?

I think it's amusing that Artea wields now a gun. It plays a bit with the cliché of elves as a tribe strongly connected to nature. Though, the first time I saw the scans with Artea, I thought he would fight with a gunblade - well, it's nearly identical. With all that technical stuff/look of the new Lufia I can't help myself but thinking that Neverland Company re-uses some of their Ruin Chasers ideas.

Oh, and I really like the the description of Gades, though I hope that the other Sinistrals get more screen-time with the remake. The plot would benefit from improving the backgrounds of all Sinistrals.
I wonder whether this game can be considered canon with the other titles in the end. If not, they could remake the other titles as well. ;D

It seems that his ultimate pursuit is not the destruction of the world, it seems like he has a different motive...


F*CK YEAH! °,° this.sounds.so.interesting. : D
Then again, Gades would seperate himself from the other Sinistrals, Erim/Iris as well - you could asume that at least. Makes me wonder whether the Sinistrals are still on the same side from the beginning then, if they are all so different in their motives.

Thanks a lot for the translations! I appreciate that you took the time. :)
Gades... wow. That was unexpected. So wait, he actually wants to destroy the Gods on Doom Island as well? So the other Sinistrals? Wow.

That motive? Perhaps to put mankind back in its place, maybe?
