Totally Sick Of Final Fantasy IV

When not making new Final Fantasy games, Square Enix likes to remake old Final Fantasy games. There's one title in particular that the company cannot stop remaking, though I really wish it would.

Remakes of Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years are headed to the PSP next spring. The games will be on a single UMD and have spruced-up graphics. None of this is really necessary, however. This game has been remade a gajillion times.

Final Fantasy IV was first released in Japan in 1991 on the Super Famicom (Super Nintendo), but a tweaked version called Final Fantasy IV: Easy Type followed later that year. The game was then remade for the PlayStation 2 in 1997. It was then released on the WonderSwan in 2002 and the Game Boy Advance in 2005. It was then remade for the Nintendo DS in late 2007. It was then released on the Wii Virtual Console in 2009, and on two Japanese cell phone operators that same year. The game was released on another cell phone operator earlier this year.

Not all those games are remakes - many of them are ports. But seriously? Another Final Fantasy IV remake? Really? The inclusion of Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, which was released on WiiWare last year, might be interesting to the handful of people who aren't sick of Square Enix dragging this game out, in one form or another, year after year.

ファイナルファンタジー4(+FF4アフター)がPSPでリメイク決定 - ライブドアブログ [痛いニュース(ノ∀`) ]


    Why can't they remake VI instead? :(

    Aw man IV is definitely my least favorite after II
    But they dont need to be remade at all...

    I just started playing VIII again, and all I can think of is how good the game would look in HD. Does this make me a bad person? :(

      I also started playing VIII again and I sort of wish that they would remake it in HD as well! Although, I'm still in love with the original ever since I first got it 10 years ago. :)

      Anyways, what I think is that they should remake all the FF games since they have time to remake IV 4 times. :P

    I disagree. Remakes are a great way to find new audience. My first exposure to the Final Fantasy series as a whole was the FFIV DS remake, which I loved and is still one of my favourite RPGs of all time.

    I'd love them to release VII again, that was the game that turned me from a occassional gamer into a 'full time' gamer. Really opened my eyes to what a game can really bring, epic story and brilliant exploration, I'd love to get stuck into that again

    Hey, it's better that they remake old games than make s****y new ones.

    VI and VII. Do it Squeenix. Do it now.

    I loved the remake of IV for the DS, cos otherwise I would have never played it... but I'd rather they remake VI or do an HD version of VII than IV again! I have access to IV with today's consoles, I don't with the other two. Wouldn't it make more sense to make more games more accessible, rather than the same one over and over?

    VIII was the greatest, hands down. even now the cut scenes are phenomenal
