this little fantasy town-sim sounds cool. The Final Fantasy brand doesn't mean that much to me really, but the overall idea looks cute.
On a vaguely similar note, previews for Construction Quest on the DS are promising, as long as it's not too difficult. I have shamefully casual tastes on my DS. Small bursts of hard are okay as long as there are no major setbacks - those mystery dungeon RPGs where you have to start over every time you die are NOT for me!
