 Post subject: Phantasy Star III: Wren
PostPosted: Sat Dec 12, '09, 12:13 am 
Wren is the third party member to join in Phantasy Star III and the second cyborg (or android, if you prefer). He is also one of the aspects of the game which had the largest impact on the next major sequel, Phantasy Star IV. That game also featured a Wren, who was a different character but still heavily inspired by this Wren. The one we are looking at now had a very unique feature: he doubled as the vehicles for the adventurers in later parts of the game. The physics of it do not make much sense, but it makes him even more vital to the completion of the adventure.

Following in the footsteps pioneered by Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom gave each playable character an individual head shot portrait to make them more recognizable to players. This was especially vital for this game, which tended to use the same set of graphics for several characters with slight color changes. Unlike the similar pictures of Nei and friends, however, these portraits were used for speech in important story scenes and the standard character menu. The previous game restricted the portrait availability to Rolf's house, but this one allowed the players to see the characters at any time they were available for play.
