Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Square Enix has released their 3D remake of Final Fantasy IV: The After Years today for iOS and Android devices. This is a remake of the original The After Years released in English as WiiWare, rendered in 3D using a style similar to the DS version of Final Fantasy IV, which is also available on mobile devices. If you’ve purchased FFIV on a mobile device already, you’ll also get a bonus item in-game when you purchase The After Years from the same mobile store.

For those who’ve never played the original WiiWare release, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is a direct sequel to Final Fantasy IV set 17 years later. Characters you may remember from the original SNES classic make a return appearance, including Cecil, Rosa, and Kain. This game, however, focuses on Ceodore, the son of Cecil and Rosa, as one of several main characters. This release includes all ten chapters of the original, with each chapter telling a story for each of these characters.

If you passed on the original 2D WiiWare and PSP releases or just want to experience the 3D graphics, you can get the game now for $15.99 USD on the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.

      I didn’t realize there were still young people without smartphones these days.

      Smart phones are for noobs, My phone battery lasts a week and I can drop it whenever I want. Smart phone batteries last a day and explode when dropped. Plus, my phone has more buttons 😛

    FFFFFFFFFFFF- Why not 3DS or Wii U eShop or something?

      hopefully they’ll port it to other consoles and devices. the screens look awesome!

    • multibottler0cket

      Yeah, seriously! I’d really like to see it on Wii U, but if anything it’ll be 3DS.

  • Tara

    If this gets a 3DS release, I’d go for it. Not before then, however. I don’t do mobile games. Except I did play Angry Birds for a while… eh. Can’t stand it anymore, though…

  • smacd

    I should probably get around to playing this. It’s been sitting on my wii for 3 years now. Starting to wish I’d waited to get it, since I paid almost $40 for the original, inferior version.

    • Tara

      To be fair, it’ll be $40 for this version if it gets put on the 3DS. One could hope that if they do it, they’d be smart enough to go “Okay, $20” which would be worth it, I think. But I dunno, I guess we’ll see if/when this happens. (Because I ultimately feel this is inevitably going to be on other platforms, they’d be foolish to make this mobile-only.)
