Final Fantasy, which began in 1987 with the release of the original NES classic RPG, has since become a worldwide phenomenon, spanning countless sequels, spinoffs, remakes, anime adaptations, and more. Each game has its own standalone storyline, with no real connection between any of the numbered releases, allowing each game to start off with a new and interesting story. Fans of the franchise have since come to love the games’ soundtracks, characters, and unique plot lines alongside with the classic Final Fantasy turn-based battle gameplay.
