Let’s Play: Glory of Heracles III Part 22

I keep mentioning this game in my articles and have used several sample movie scenes of it as well. But one really needs to have experienced the game in full to appreciate its quality. If you haven’t been spoiled yet (or even if you have), watch this series of youtube videos first before you read any of the related articles. I’m planning a weekly release schedule.

If you haven’t seen it yet, start with part 1. Or better yet, play it yourself. There is a fan translation patch available at romhacking.net which I used for this Let’s Play.

Back on earth our heroes get news of the threat of coming war. What is the King of Trantia up to?

This episodes also gives some explanation on the origin of the monsters swarming the world in Glory of Heracles 3. It is different to most other RPGs where monsters often are a kind of natural animal. The follow up Glory of Heracles 4 had a different explanation for its monsters also but Final Fantasy X practically shares the one in Glory of Heracles 3. Watch the episode and compare:

Final Fantasy VII also shares it for its undead monsters:

It is worth mentioning that Final Fantasy II, although not written by Nojima, also has a similar origin for its monsters so the concept wasn’t entirely alien to the series when Nojima brought it with him from Glory of Heracles 3:
