Final Fantasy Tactics Advance hits Wii U today via Virtual Console


Goodbye, free time

The second game in the Final Fantasy Tactics family can now be found on the Wii U. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, originally released for the Game Boy Advance in 2003, follows the journey of a boy named Marche after he and his hometown are transported to the magic-filled world of Ivalice.

Tactics Advance was one of my first Final Fantasy games, and is still my favorite of the few I’ve played. Despite this, I never actually managed to take down the final boss. I was underleveled for the fight, and a weird autosave stopped me from grinding out a few more levels before the battle. It was like a decade ago, but I still regret never finishing it.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance can be found on the Wii U Virtual Console for $7.99.
