Rumor - FFIV: The After Coming To The US

Hmmm, I don't exactly know the deal with posting rumors here. But, I've had some luck with them before, so let's give it a shot. Worst case scenario: somebody dies.

Wait, i mean, it could be just a rumor. That's it.

It's actually been whispered for a while, but now the news has gained a slightly more steady voice. Final Fantasy IV: The After, the mobile based sequel to the original, is making it's way out of Japan. But not the way you think it is.

Instead of a version for say, iPhone or even DS, the title is rumored to be heading to WiiWare, each episode retailing for about 500-600 points.

Is it true? How could I possibly know, I don't have the sources. Instead, we'll just say it's more than feasible~

Well, w/e way it comes sounds good to me. A generational sequel seems like the only good way to properly do sequels to the FFs anyways...though I'm still gonna hold my hopes for at least a DS port/remake (c'mon! they've got most of the 3D models they could carry over from FFIV DS!)...

I won't jump up and down just yet. 500-600 points per episode seems a bit expensive.

How much do the Wii points cost?

Xin    2008-09-21, 21:28 pm

$1 = 100points, i think. in Japan the episodes were only about $3.

In Australia they're $1.50 (about $1.25US these days) for 100 points. Which would make each episode about $7.50 - $9.00AU. In Europe they're 1.00 Euro. Some WiiWare games only cost 500 points, a complete NES game costs 500 points. The most expensive WiiWare titles cost 1500 points, so they would be charging one third the price of a full title for DLC.

Well, like it says, it's still in the how much can we trust rumor prices...? Not that I would be surprised by this being the actual price...

Final Fantasy IV is one of my favorite old-school FFs. And the fact that I've yet to get my hands on the sequel, The After Years, has been disappointing. Thankfully, SquareEnix will remedy this for me next year, as they've announced the Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection for PSP. The pack will contain some updated graphics, not like the NDS...
