It’s been a long journey, but here we are, at last, at the conclusion of Terranigma! For those who missed this game, it’s one of those real gems on the Super Nintendo that came out only in Japan and Europe in 1996 – a time when a lot of the world had already moved on to the Nintendo 64, PlayStation, and other newer consoles. Yet, Terranigma delivers an outstanding tale that continues the thematics and stories of ActRaiser, Soul Blazer, and Illusion of Gaia before it. If you haven’t played it before, you really should track down a copy to enjoy!
In this final outing, Ark and his friends head to Beruga’s Lab Tower to confront the mad scientist. After making their way all the way up to the top, Ark discovers that Beruga has taken off in an airship in an attempt to escape and continue his plot. However, the team manages to bring down the airship, and although Beruga refuses to give up, a rather unfortunate fate befalls him before he can escape. In any event, Ark finally returns to the underworld where he confronts Dark Gaia in an epic final showdown (though not so epic, given our incredible stats) and defeats the being of darkness. Then…well, it’s time for the ending.
I actually enjoyed the ending quite a bit and felt that it was a worthy conclusion. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but I’ll say that, if nothing else, it’s certainly worth watching.
Anyway, thanks for tuning in! If you missed any of the previous episodes, you can find them here, in this playlist! 🙂
