Not realizing that this was counting Super Famicom sales, I didn't try any of the Dragon Quest games. I did try Final Fantasy II and III, which should be type-ins for Final Fantasy IV and VI, respectively.

Also, there should be more time. 4:00 is pretty short for 48 answers.

I'll add more time, though I am a bit confused as to why ff2 and 3 should be type ins for 4 and 6.

Because Final Fantasy 4 was sold as Final Fantasy 2 outside of Japan, and Final Fantasy 6 was sold as Final Fantasy 3 outside of Japan. FF 2, 3, and 5 were Japan-only, so they continued the numbering from the last game everywhere else.

Starting with 7, all territories use the Japanese numbers, even in remakes. SNES players didn't know about the mismatch at the time.

That is... probably the dumbest thing I’ve heard. Kinda weird that they released it that way, but whatever. I’ll go fix it.

Yeah, I was super confused when it jumped from FF3 to FF7.

Thanks.

"Donkey Kong Country 2" should be sufficient for Diddy's Kong Quest. "Donkey Kong Country 3" should be sufficient for Dixie Kong's Double Trouble.

Yeah, I made this quiz a long time ago before I really understood type-ins. Thanks for all the suggestions! I will do a once-over.
