Final Fantasy IV The After Years

I hope you have room in your hearts for another incarnation of Final Fantasy IV. Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter if you do or don’t. Square Enix is going to release Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection anyway. The news was just revealed in the Japanese V Jump magazine, and this could be the mystery title Square Enix was teasing for Jump Festa 11.

At least this time, Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection will have some new content worth purchasing. The “collection” part of the name refers to the fact that it will include Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. The episodic sequel to the original game, which appeared on Japanese cell phones and WiiWare, will be included in its entirety on the UMD. So, for the first time ever, the entire Final Fantasy IV story will be sold at once.

That isn’t the only new content though. In order to help tie Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years together, Square Enix is creating an extra little storyline. So the game will transition smoothly from the original game to the cash-in sequel. Not that it was really necessary, since The After Years did a pretty good job of connecting to FFIV on its own.

So far, only a Japanese Spring 2011 release date has been revealed, but I think we all know this is getting a worldwide release. I mean, it’s Final Fantasy IV! Any Square Enix game with the Final Fantasy in the title will be milked for all it is worth.

That said, yes. I will absolutely buy it. Just because it’ll probably be cheaper than buying the rest of the WiiWare FFIV: The After Years episodes. (I only bought the first three.)! I will wait until a year after it’s released though, because by then it’ll probably be in the $19.99 bin.
