Ah so it did say the Wii... Very cool :) FFIV is awesome and I'm glad the Wii is getting this sequel perfect place for it as well.

FF2/ 3 (really 5 and 6) and 8 are the only games that inspire any sort of happiness towards SquareEnix nowadays.

I just got my Wii a couple of weeks ago because I KNEW that it was becoming a must have JRPG machine: Arc Rise Fantasia, two Tales games, Muramasa, Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga (actually DOESN'T look like poo, I was very surprised), and now this.

I think it has a lot to do with the install base and cheap/ fast development. There's a good chance that I'll see most, if not all of the RPGs I just listed this year too, which is nice.

P.S. The ESRB has it listed as 2D!! Very, very interested now, especially in light of titles like Muramasa. Wii may not push too many polys, but gorgeous sprites and art direction can make a huge impact regardless.

EDIT: Followed the original source article. Looks like it might just be a cellphone port/ Wiiware game. Interest declining, but still present...sigh...

Well yeah it first came out on the mobile in Japan so that's kind of what they need to go with, but if Crystal Defenders is any indication SE can make a good port of a mobile game.

Thats interesting.........i doubt it will look as beautiful as Demon Blade but if they could get anywhere near that level of art would be impressive especially for an old Final Fantasy sequel,imagine a new Chrono Trigger with Demon Blade art........

will it get a graphics overhaul, or do we get the cellphone graphics ?

PS360WII3497d ago

maybe a slight increase but seeing that it's going for a sequel of a SNES game me thinks it'll retain that kind of look

Regardless it will prolly be a Wiiware game so it wont cost that much,maybe $15.

wasn't there a link to xbox.jp about Final Fantasy (the after??) few weeks ago? I don't know but it sounds familiar. So I guess it'll be a Wiiware/XBL/PSN title by Sqaure Enix, probably a reworked version of the DS remake.

PS360WII3497d ago

Your half right :) the only thing wrong was about the DS remake as it never happened this is a sequel to FFIV that was only released on mobile phones in Japan I think last year or two years ago.
