Shining force 3 Scen 1 vs 2 compatability

will your saved game from the american version of SF3 part 1 load up on SF3part 2? (shenmue 1 and 2 sure didnt work so i am doubtful)
I'm 99% sure that you can use your US or European SFIII scenario 1 saved game with the Japanese scenario 2.

You can certainly use it with the premium disc so I don't see why it wouldn't work.
