Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection has includes three games: Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, and a brand new Interlude episode. Through the main menu, players can choose any storyline to play as soon as they unwrap the PSP game.
So, you can start in the middle with the Interlude, try out The After Years, and then go back to the beginning of the Final Fantasy IV saga. The only exception is you must complete the first episode of The After Years to open the other episodes, which can be played in any order.
The options menu also lets players choose between the original music and rearranged soundtrack. You can also select the game’s language from English, French or Japanese. The English translation is based on the Game Boy Advance version. Extra event scenes made for the Nintendo DS remake are not included in the game. This game does not have the augment system, which was made for Final Fantasy IV on the DS, either.
Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection uses unedited art based on the Japanese version, which means some enemies have slightly different sprites. The game has an art gallery with character and enemy art to unlock. While some of the pictures will be familiar to fans, Square Enix said there is some new artwork to see in The Complete Collection.
