Final Fantasy IV gets a final fantastic remake

In the world of RPGs, “Final Fantasy IV” is legendary. Success in its first iteration has led to even more sales and great reviews for its re-releases. In “Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection,” Square Enix brings the title and its sequel, “The After Years,” to the PSP.

This latest, and perhaps last, incarnation of “Final Fantasy IV” features the return of the 2-D sprites that were replaced with 3-D graphics in the Nintendo DS version. These are no ordinary sprites, though; they utilize the high-resolution capabilities of the PSP in a detailed, though slightly cartoony, way.

A new episode is also being included to tie together the original storyline with that of its sequel, which is currently only available on some mobile devices and through Nintendo WiiWare.  The events of “The After Years” take place 17 years after those in “Final Fantasy IV” and focus on Ceodore, son of Cecil and Rose.

Take a peek at the Japanese trailer for “Complete Collection,” but don’t get your hopes up just yet.  The Japanese release of this game will occur sometime in 2011 with future releases in other countries yet to be announced.
