BNR: A good long while ago I noticed that the Nintendo DS/mobile phone version of Final Fantasy IV came to Steam and it was kind of... Ugly. Well, great news- Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is also coming to Steam, and it's just as ugly.
Ugly indeed. I wish they just ported an HD version of the sprite version on the PSP.
seriously dont understand this instead of vita or 3ds its coming to pc
You can already play FFIV and The After Years on Vita though PSP emulation though.
Either SE is clueless on how the market works or they're just idiots
This is just as bad as the announcement of FFVII on the PS4.
I wouldn't agree more.
Well on the bright side at least it gives people more opportunity to play the game if they haven't played it yet.
The game is terrible though ... Can't they focus their efforts on actually making good games instead of constantly stretching they're old games past their breaking point?
They tried to whoo people with a glorious trailer hoping they don't actually see the real game
Yeah that was funny.
It's the same graphics from the mobile version, and honestly I find them very charming.
Charming on a mobile unit maybe. On my projector it looks like hot garbage smeared with vasoline.
What did you expect? It's using a beefed up version of the 3DS engine. Honestly I hope video games go under because of all this cry baby entitlement lately. Since all it is now days is "boohoo it doesn't cater to me", what happened to the days when games were FUN..
Guy, I have FFIV on my 3ds and emulated on my Shield. I know its a great game....on my little screens. The problem I have is these crappy 'remakes' keep getting churned out with no real improvements.
It's easy money for them. They don't have any real development to do and they make money off an old game on a new platform. They don't really care if most people like it at this point. The name Final Fantasy alone means it'll sell enough to justify porting it. I know it sucks but that's probably what's going on.
Play it in a tiny windowed mode i guess ?
@Nio-Nai This is in no way a "3DS" engine, this is a port from the DS version-3ds can easily output far better visuals than this...
The graphics are perfectly fine, far from ugly just because a game is not running on some new game engine does not make it ugly.
Hope it hits Vita. They can cram it otherwise.
