DS runs/categories?

Hi all,

So I've been taking notes off of a few of the JP runs for SaGa 2 Hihou Densetsu - Goddess of Destiny, which is the Nintendo DS remake of FFL2. I'm actually going to start doing runs of it using the translation patch that Crimson Nocturnal made a few years back, and I think other runners are planning to as well. I was wondering how best to handle the split there?

Given the original JP game doesn't exist on SRC, it kind of would make sense to me to add it as a category under FFL2 like how it's handled for the various versions of FF games.

Would you guys object if we added a category for the DS game to here? Any% DS?

I think it is only natural that with time, new platforms be added. catklaw, Deln, your thoughts?

Hughes, let's talk about getting the ds version on here some more. Categories, rules, what's allowed ECT. Let's get this added for you guys who want to explore or continue to explore this option.

Apologies for replying to an old thread. If you're thinking about adding SaGa 2 DS (and possibly SaGa 3 DS), I would take a look at the rules the Japanese community has in place:

  • Start time from power on or selecting the game on the home screen
  • End time when you save after the final boss
  • New game (no data transfer), Normal mode
  • Listing IGT is nice, though not necessary

An additional rule for SaGa 3 DS:

  • Use of passwords is not allowed unless the game gives you it from in-game events and treasure chests

UPDATE 9/21/2020: HDElder has added both SaGa 2 and SaGa 3 DS to SRC: https://www.speedrun.com/saga_2_hihou_densetsu_goddess_of_destiny https://www.speedrun.com/saga_3_jikuu_no_hasha_shadow_or_light
