Following yesterday’s extensive Tokyo Game Show coverage (okay, so the PlayStation app was all we really got from it), we now have another bit of news coming forth from Japan’s video game expo. It’s one of the best in the series and it seems Square Enix is planning to release the follow up to Final Fantasy IV, the HD remake that hit Android devices back in June.
Not quite the Final Fantasy V remake we were hoping for, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years will be finally making its way stateside. Released back in 2008 for mobile devices (but exclusive to Japan) After Years is set in the same world as IV, only 17 years later. Many of the original cast from IV reprises their role in After Years, and gameplay sticks to the tried-and-true turn based formula.
Although pricing for Final Fantasy IV: The After Years wasn’t mentioned, we expect the title to retail for Square Enix’s usual $15 when it launches in the Google Play Store later this year. Oh, for multiple platform gamers, After Years will also be released for iOS as well.
