Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden (Final Fantasy Adventure in the U.S. and Mystic Quest in Europe), released in 1991,
was the first game in the Seiken Densetsu series. Released on the original Game Boy, its gameplay is roughly similar to that
of the original Legend of Zelda game, but with the addition of RPG statistical elements.
A male character named Sumo, the protagonist, is out for vengeance of his parents' death at the hands of the antagonist
Dark Lord. The main female character is Fuji. Apart from the Dark Lord, there is another antagonist called Julius.
Being a Final Fantasy spinoff, the artistic style of the game was very similar to that of the main Final Fantasy series,
down to the menu screens with the thick, shaded borders. In particular, the game bore many similarities to Final Fantasy Mystic
Quest, which led to its western titles, Final Fantasy Adventure and Mystic Quest (relates to Mystic Quest Legend, the European
title of FF Mystic Quest). Final Fantasy mainstays, the chocobos and moogles, also made appearances here. Also, the crystals
and Airship, other common Final Fantasy plot devices, make appearances. It could also be said that its simplistic dialogue
is also reminiscent of early games in the Final Fantasy series.
The game later received a 32-bit remake for the Game Boy Advance called Sword of Mana.
