A good day for some requests being fulfilled!

Thanks to zagato blackfist, we have maps of Dashin' Desperadoes which Hugbot originally requested, but which I seconded because it seemed interesting to me since I hadn't played that game until I heard about it just then.  Those are some long maps!

Thanks to G.E.R., continuing his DS conquest, we now have maps of the DS Castlevania games, which include Castlevania: Dawn Of Sorrow, Castlevania: Portrait Of Ruin, and Castlevania: Order Of Ecclesia.  There probably aren't many 2D Castlevania games left... are there?

Great job on the CV DS maps, GER.

Fresh off of mapping the three Castlevania DS games, G.E.R. continues with another three games in a long-running franchise, again on a Nintendo handheld, this time contributing maps for Final Fantasy IV Advance, Final Fantasy V Advance, and Final Fantasy VI Advance on the GBA.

Have you played these refurbished classics?  You may have played them on the Super NES/Super Famicom, but these versions have extra areas and bosses, and other tweaks like better translations.  Plus, portability!  (I know there have since been mobile versions and the "Pixel Remaster" versions, but the characters are redrawn and seem... off.)  Final Fantasy VI Advance might be my favourite Final Fantasy game of all.

Thanks again, G.E.R.  There probably aren't many 2D Final Fantasy games left to map, are there?

G.E.R. continues the DS streak with the Mario & Luigi games.  Today, I only had time to put up the maps for Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time.  Bowser's Inside Story was also submitted, but I'll have to put that up tomorrow or soon after.  Ironic that I ran out of time...

I remember playing this, but it was quite a while ago.  I do remember some amusing time hijinks, like Bowser in the past teaming up with Baby Bowser (his younger self), not knowing that they are the same person, and then even as they are defeated, Baby Bowser is inspired and vows to be as strong as Bowser... a bootstrapping paradox whereby it seems Baby Bowser is strong because he sees that his future self is strong...  Time shenanigans are always fun.

When they remade the first and third Mario & Luigi games for the 3DS, I wonder why they skipped over Partners In Time?

G.E.R.'s maps for Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story are now up, too!  Yay!  It's good to have another Mario RPG completed.

I wonder if I should sort out my requests somehow, LOL.  I want maps of EVERYTHING that is popular or cool.  Some of my requests are purely nostalgic for me personally, while some of them are popular games where I think "why haven't they been mapped by now?", etc.

Return To Monkey Island just got a release date of September 19 (less than four weeks from today!) and I was just talking in the VGMaps discord server about how surprising it is that we don't have full maps of ANY Monkey Island game.  Those are definitely high on a "why haven't they been mapped by now?" list.
