Let’s forget about the 3D version of Final Fantasy IV and its interchangeable ability system for a second. The original Super Famicom version used sprites, some of the same sprites and tiles found in the sequel, Final Fantasy IV: The After. Square-Enix opted to use the classic graphics either to preserve nostalgia or save on development costs. You decide.
The battle system also looks familiar, but the story is new. You play as Cecil’s son Theodore (left screenshot, second character on the right hand side) who has to return to the moon. Rosa, Cid and other cast members will make an appearance in the game’s monthly downloadable chapters. To entice people to check it out Square-Enix is giving the prologue chapter out for free.
