Intrepid video game modder Lance McDonald - of P.T. discoveries fame - took to Twitter to reveal the find, but also to confirm the only thing this emulator is good for is running the original PSone version of MediEvil.

In 2016, a Japanese Final Fantasy fan named Naka no Hito released a ROM hack that remixes elements of Final Fantasy IV to loosely retell the story of Final Fantasy II. The result was called "Final Fantasy C2". It's not a short re-creation, either - it might take the average, non-expert player 15 to 25 hours to complete. In 2018, a different Final Fantasy fan named Tsushiy released a small patch that updated FFC2. This patch upgraded the enemies' graphics and replaced many of the enemies with actual enemies from Final Fantasy II. In 2020, Tomato translated Final Fantasy C2 into English.

The link to the patch can be found here - http://tomato.fobby.net/ffc2/
