More Final Fantasy IV For You!


Final Fantasy IV
Okay, readers, let's be honest. The majority of us have played Final Fantasy IV. A decent number of us have played it on more than one system. What with the SNES version, PSX, GBA, DS and Wii, that's five different ways to play! I know what you're thinking right now. "Only five? That's pathetic! Final Fantasy I has been released on at least SIX different platforms!" And you would be correct. Square-Enix, apparently realising this, have decided to bring four up to six. By that I mean, bring Final Fantasy IV up to six platforms, and not.... you know what, never mind.

So, my friends, here's the deal. Final Fantasy IV is coming to a PSP near you. HUZZAH! It'll be coming with Super-Turbo-HD graphics, in the same vein as the Final Fantasy I and II remakes from a few years ago and NOT the 3D graphics from the DS remake. No specific release date as of yet, only "Next Spring". That's quite close.

But that's not all. Remember the sequel to Final Fantasy IV, titled "The After Years"? It was originally released on mobile phones, and then released in installments on the Wii Shop Channel. This sequel will come included in the game with the same graphical enhancements. Booya. It is not clear yet whether the sequel includes all of the episodes with it, but one assumes that that would be the only way to go.

Some people might sigh, seeing this game remade for the forty-fifth time (see linked article), but 4 is one of the games that I never really get bored of. Now I'm going to have to find one of my copies of Final Fantasy IV and play it again. Squee.

Rangers51 I'm actually super, super excited for this. I don't have a Wii and probably will never have one, so I figured I'd never get to play After Years. But I DO have a PSP, by golly. And I WILL play this there. So. Much. Squee.

Gigantuar !! Awesome! I've played it on GBA, but I no longer have the copy, and my DS version is pirate (;_;) so this will be awesome. And I never bothered to by the after years to the Wii, so... yay!

Except for Xenon, probably.

trismegistus Since I don't have a DS, I've only played a mere FOUR versions of the same game, so this one will clearly be necessary.

Miss Ronin Poor Kotaku, being forced to play every game that comes out whether they like it or not.

Oh wait, no they don't, I guess they're just being terribly whiny.

Glenn Magus Harvey Wow, the PSP is racking up a lineup of great games, and is starting to rival the DS in terms of how much I might like it.

Edit: ...okay, said lineup consists of FFT The Lion Wars, Castlevania Drac X Chronicles, and this.

No but actually I've asked for FFIV DS for my birthday (which is in 16 days) so I may well play it. Woo.

Am I the only one who thinks FFIV doesn't need yet another remake? I already put in the Unpopular Gaming Opinions thread why I think it's kind of overrated, so I'll spare you all the rant.
I'd much rather see this kind of remake for FFIII, FFV, or FFVI.

Oh well. It's not like this effects me at all, so y'all can spare the "if you don't like it you don't have to play it" comments. Hell, I don't even own a PSP anyway.

Totally agree with this. I didn't like the most recent remake at all, and am not excited about what they can do with yet another shot at it. I'm so very tired of a game that I once loved so much and that makes me sad.

I'm confused as to what makes this version so much different from all the other ones. I can't see how they are able to sell yet another remake when there are so many other recent ones available on multiple other systems. I really liked FFIV, but I just don't see the point in this.

And, no problem Xenon tongue.gif I can't speak for the DS version specifically, but the game itself is definitely worth a playthrough. Just not as much as FFX.
Aeris-LoganComment 11: 2010-12-14 02:04
Aeris-Logan I would have to agree. Why have some of the games on 6 different systems and have one (FF3) only on one? I would really like to see a FF3 on a console based system. sad.gif

I have to agree on this one. While I'm excited I have to say it is disappointing that 3 always gets skipped. With exception to the DS version of which is not that true to the original of which I believe had mor than three monsters to battles and different characters. In fact a Final Fantasy 3 had a sequel Manga according to a wiki page I found and the Onion Knights had names and none of the names matched the DS version which sucks!!!

Final Fantasy IV gets more treatment while Final Fantasy 5-6 gets ignored ?
Thumbs down. thumbdown.gif Final Fantasy IV is cool and all, but Final Fantasy 7 fans have been waiting for their remake for ages and FF6 fans have been waiting for something, so really this is unfair on the Final Fantasies. And FF IV is kind of turning into the Remake King.

Kane I loves me some FFIV. smile.gif

Does anyone know if Squenix has plans to add content?
Aeris-LoganComment 15: 2010-12-14 22:13
Aeris-Logan Now dont get me wrong. I wasnt saying I hated IV. I was merely saying that they should "spread the love" so to speak. I think its narrow minded to keep re-releasing some games and almost totally ignoring others. There are so many different "Final fantasy" titles out there. Why just keep picking the same couple (1, 4, 6, spinoffs of 7) to rework?
