    Default SNES/NES/Genesis RPG Strategy Guides

    Inspired by another thread, I'm wondering what ALL of the Super Nintendo, Nintendo, and Sega Genesis strategy guides there are. I'm not counting the mail-order hint guides or hint guides that were included with the game on purchase.

    I just compiled a list of the SNES guides (maybe more?), and the couple of NES/GEN guides I have. Help me out.

    SNES:
    Final Fantasy III
    Earthbound*
    Brain Lord
    Breath of Fire
    Breath of Fire II
    Secret of Mana*
    Secret of Evermore*
    Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Chrono Trigger
    Lufia
    Lufia II*
    Super Mario RPG
    Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest ???

    NES:
    Dragon Warrior IV*
    Final Fantasy

    Genesis:
    Phantasy Star IV

    Guides with * are ones I don't have yet.

    Genesis:
    Phantasy Star III

    There were multiple versions of the Lufia guides I believe - hardbound and softbound.

    Not sure if this is what you mean by mail order, but way back in the day, Nintendo Power had 4 special issues that were strategy guides. They were part of the regular subscription.

    They were:
    Super Mario Bros. 3
    Final Fantasy
    Ninja Gaiden 2? (might have been 3, not sure)
    4-Player Games (this highlighted the 4 player adapter when it came out and the games for it, one was a volleyball game)

    Not sure if it was included with the game, or seperate, but Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun for the Genesis had a hint book, albeit slightly larger than the game case width and height.

    Also, how about Sega CD guides, since they are techically part of the Genesis. I have guides for Vay and Lunar: The Silver Star by Sandwich Islands Publishing. I believe there were guides for Popful Mail and Heimdall as well.

    He's only asking about RPG guides from those systems.

    Wow, I have quite a few of those, just a couple more that I care to get.

    Wouldn't the Earthbound guide not fit your criteria since it was included w/ the game. Or is there another guide that was sold seperately?

    Well, yeah, the Earthbound guide came with the game. I forgot about that.

    I have hintbooks, I believe, for Phantasy Star II and Sword of Vermilion that came with the game. I wasn't talking about those, though.

    I will be adding Phantasy Star III to my collection.

    Then I labeled just about all the North American Genesis RPG guides there are. The only other ones I can think of are for the Sega CD (Vay, Lunar 1 and 2).

    I own the Heimdall guide. Pretty strange that they even bothered making an official strategy guide for such a low-profile game. The guide is even specific to the Sega CD version (although I'm not sure what the differences are between the versions).
