Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection Lands On PSP Next Year

ffivafter.jpgIf all this talk about massive, cross-galaxy Western RPGs that just got announced is starting to overwhelm, then perhaps Square-Enix has what you need - a trip back a simpler time, when mages were mages and double-betrayals were double-betrayals and trips to the moon were trips to the moon. Well, okay... so maybe Final Fantasy IV has more in common with Mass Effect than it first appears.

And that includes being released on a new platform! V Jump magazine has just revealed the existence of the Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection, a new release on PSP. Previously, if one were to seek out the whole story for Cecil, Kain, Rosa, and the rest, it would involve playing the franchise classic on either SNES, PSX, GBA, or DS, then shelling out for some Wii points and downloading FFIV: The After Years, an episodic epilogue that was released only on Wiiware during 2009. It followed various characters from the original game as they dealt with a new set of threats, a second moon, and a whiny heir to the throne.

However, with the Complete Collection, players will be able to see the entire canon arc from start to finish on a single disc, with an extra scenario that will tie the original game to its later years. This means a prime opportunity for FF fans who haven't partaken of the wealth of rereleases of this game can now play it with all the bonus content imaginable--hopefully with a certain "spoony bard" intact.

Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection will be arriving in Japan next spring, though no date is available yet for a Western release.

Ugh. Where's the Final Fantasy VI love? (Or even V, really, I'm just so sick of IV.)

Agreed, we need an HD remake of Final Fantasy VI and it's amazing soundtrack.

Karrde said:

Well as much as I'd prefer a remake for FF6, I'll prolly end up picking this one up too.

If they do a PSP quality remake of VI, then I'll get excited. I've played IV enough times, and unless this version is really something special I think I'll pass...

YES. Finally. Leave it to the rest of my gays to agree that IV is WAY overdone. I'm holding on to the hope that VI finally gets its love. In the amount of time they've wasted doing ports and remakes of IV, they clearly could've given similar treatments to V, VI, and maybe even VII (instead of complaining that it would take 10+ years to remake VII).

...I'll probably still give it a try, though. Haha

I absolutely agree with the majority of comments here in saying that Final Fantasy VI is desperately in need of a remake a la the gorgeous PSP FF and FFII remakes (the gameplay of which honestly has not held up well over the years), but I have also played FFIV on the PS1 and GBA, and the excellent DS remake, and enjoyed it every time. So, I will be interested in this new release and look forward to the opportunity to play the After Years content, which I passed up on the Wii because of poor reviews. This is all assuming that it gets a US release, of course.
