Thanks to a trailer we have a definitive date on Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. The direct sequel to Final Fantasy IV will come out on WiiWare on June 1st. This should keep Final Fantasy fans busy during E3.
The trailer shows familiar foes like a palette swap of Octomamm called Octo-Kraken in The After Years and Luca, King Giott’s daughter who is allied with Rydia. Luca uses her Calco and Brena dolls to attack and has Cid’s Peep command.
Wait a second… “experience the captivating sequel in nine episodic tales”… is Square Enix going to sell Final Fantasy IV: The After Years in episodes?
Twelve chapters were released in Japan on mobile phones. That number includes a prologue, semifinal, and final episode. Some of these like the prologue, Kain’s, and Ceodore’s chapters appear to be bunched together in the US release.
