ConsoleNameDeveloperLucca's Observations

3DSShining Force: The Sword of Hajya (VC)Sonic Software PlanningSee GG
3DSTales of the AbyssNamco Tales StudioVery similar to the original; load times are shorter, some minor changes to quests were made, and shortcuts for battle abilities requires use of the touchscreen
3DSThe Alliance AliveCattle Call/Grezzo/FuRyuWritten by the creator of Suikoden; a turn-based game where skills are increased via use and "talent points" are accumulated to improve stats individually
