For the May 2021 edition of Pantheon of the Blood God, Kat and Nadia are joined by special guest Steve Tramer for a deep dive exploration of Terranigma! Having never been released in North America, Terranigma is regarded by many as one of the Super Nintendo’s lost treasures. But does it deserve to be in the Pantheon? It’s time to find out!
In the course of answering this question, Kat, Steve, and Nadia break apart its excellent battle system, art and world while also talking about its flaws, such as its odd magic system. They also examine the legacy of Quintet, and explain why Terranigma is the culmination of the studio’s brief, sparkling run on the SNES.
