Final Fantasy IV: The After Years won’t be the only downloadable Final Fantasy game coming to Wii. The NES game that started the series will arrive on the Virtual Console this May in Japan. Square Enix promises a North American launch for Final Fantasy sometime in 2009. Future Final Fantasy games will also be available on the Virtual Console although it is unknown what Square Enix will do with missing links like Final Fantasy II, III, and V.
A sequel to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King is also planned for 2009. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord lets players control a little Miss who places traps and unleashes monsters to keep adventurers from climbing up her home. Sitting at the top of the tower is a Dark Crystal. If the adventurers, which happen to be different races and job classes from the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series, grab the crystal it’s game over. Sounds sort of like a cuter version of Tecmo’s Deception series.
Finally, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years will come out on Wii this year. This is a direct sequel to Final Fantasy IV starring Cecil and Rosa’s son Ceodore. Originally, this was released as an episodic cell phone game in Japan. Square Enix hasn’t said any details about the pricing or if it will be released in pieces. Looks like Final Fantasy IV: The After Years has been stretched out to fit a widescreen TV, might be a first with Final Fantasy IV, the Super Nintendo game’s, assets.
