Back in the 90's, Disney was planning on doing a four issue comic based off of the Final Fantasy series. Most of the cover work was done by Mike Mignola (creator of the Hellboy comics). Only two covers for the proposed comic were drawn. Kurt Busiek, who wrote the comic, explained a bit about working on the comic:

I didn't actually pitch for the project. I was asked to write it by the editor, either because he liked my work or because I was in the same state as the Square offices or both. So I visited the offices, they loaned me a bunch of stuff, I played the game and wrote up an outline.

It was after that that they told me they liked my outline but they were working on the new iteration of the game, so could I retool that story to be about that? They sent lots of reference on the new game, and there was just no way to do the first outline with characters from the new game, so they paid me a kill fee for the outline and I started from scratch with the new story outline.


The comic was quietly cancelled in 1993 when Disney's Hollywood Comic studio closed its doors.

Golden Sun
There are four unused items in the game's memory obtainable only through GameShark codes or debug rooms:

Masamune: A Long Sword-class Artifact weapon, increases base attack by 115 and has no unleash effect. It has a unique graphic that is not seen legitimately in either this game or Lost Age.
Sol Blade: A Long Sword-class Artifact weapon, increases base attack by 138 and has no unleash effect. Its 138 attack power is the highest out of any weapon in this game, surpassing even the 135 attack power of the Gaia Blade, this game's ultimate weapon.
Kusanagi: A Light Blade-class Artifact weapon, increases base attack by 135 and has no unleash effect.
Mysterious Robe: An Artifact robe, increases base defense by 40 and has no secondary effect.

Most of these items became proper, fully-coded items in the game's sequel, Golden Sun: The Lost Age

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
The game pays homage to other JoJo-related media that came before it; in this case, the OVA:

• One of Avdol's alternate color schemes turns his coat red and shirt to yellow, similar his appearance from the 1993's and 2001's OVA. The same goes for Joseph Joestar, Polnareff, and Black Polnareff, all of them having alternate color schemes that resemble their OVA apparance.
• One of Iggy's special moves make him create a giant wave of sand in his opponent's direction, similar to how he attacked Vanilla Ice in the OVA.

The game went through massive changes when it was ported from Japan to the US. The Japanese version only has Easy and Difficult difficulty settings.

The international versions also add a health meter for the bosses, language selection, a couple new enemies, adjusts some of the level layouts, and fixes some of the slowdown.
