Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Has A Multiplayer Mode (Update)

image Square Enix opened a site for Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (thanks for the tip Justin!!) and the product information section caught my attention. See the number of players? It says 1-4.


Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is a role playing game where you visit characters from Final Fantasy IV years in the future. How do four players fit into the picture? Will Square Enix split control of the party a la an option in Final Fantasy VI? Or will Final Fantasy IV: The After Years come with dragoon training mini-games?


Update: Joystiq buzzed Square Enix and found out what the multiplayer feature is. It’s shared character control during battles similar to Final Fantasy VI and IX.

    The kids all cry for online coop these days. There is probably some capturing the flag as well. :-/

    BUT there will be mini-games. FF always has minigames, so why not some multiplayer enabled ones?

    • I agree. It’ll probably have mini-games like the ones in Final Fantasy IV DS, and those will be multiplayer.

  • It’s probably the same as the older-gen games in terms of multiplayer. Remember how 5, 6 and 9 did it? Assign whoever to whatever character. Wasn’t really that great of a multi-player outside of 5, really. If there was a redeeming quality about the under-rated 5, it did have strong 2P support with the job system it had.
