FFIV: The After Years
« on: September 15, 2009, 02:04:00 PM »
I was just going on gamefaqs, and saw a new FF game...FFIV: The After Years.  This is news to me, I didn't know they were making a new FFIV game.  Evidently it is a Wii Ware game, focused around the son of Cecil and Rosa (his name is Ceodore.  What do you all think of this?  Discuss.

Actually the game is rather old already. It was first build specificity for the japanese mobilephone and it has been remade for he wii ware afterwards.

Haven't played the game myself, but it is said to be a good one. Build in the exact same style as FFIV.

I think it takes 17 or 18 years after the events of FFIV, something like that. Each character somewhat has their own chapter, but I that's all I know about it.

Naturally, this game has a immense amount of playable characters and pretty much everyone returns, older looking. :o

I'm told that its pretty good, it has alot of references to various editions of FFIV, although it seems to be more of a sequel to the DS version of Final Fantasy VI with the graphics of the SNES version.

If you just get the "Core Game" and the Final Chapter, all you really need to beat the game, its 1,600 Wii Points, which is more or less $16. If you want the Full Game (The Core Game, all Optional Chapters, and the Final Chapter), it'll cost you 3,700 Wii Points, or about $37. You can select what Optional Chapters you'd like to play, and they cost 300 Wii Points, or $3, so just add whatever ones you choose to the $16 you need to get the Core Game & Final Chapter.

Here's the Break-Down if you want it though.

The "Core Game" was released as a set for 800 WiiPoints.
The "Core Game" contains the following:
- Prologue: Return of the Moon
- Ceodore's Tale: The Last of the Red Wings
- Kain's Tale: Return of the Dragoon

Tales 4-10 are entirely optional, so you don't have to play them, and costs 300 WiiPoints each.
The Optional Tales are:
- Rydia's Tale: The Eidolons Shackled
- Yang's Tale: The Master of Fabul
- Palom's Tale: The Mage's Voyage
- Edge's Tale: The Pulse of Babil
- Porom's Tale: The Vanished Lunar Whale
- Edward's Tale: Star-Crossed Damcyan
- The Lunarian's Tale: The Blue Planet That Was

The Final Episode is required to finish the game and costs 800 Wii Points.
The Final Episode is called:
- The Crystals: Planet Eater

Also, except for the Core Game, each chapter is purchased within Final Fantasy IV: The After Years rather than the Wii Shop Channel.

Sadly, I won't have the chance to play it until I get a new Wii, since my brother lost mine around Christmas last year.
