Back in September, we told you that Square Enix would be launching an iOS port of Final Fantasy IV: The After Years “this winter.” Well, while it’s not yet officially winter, the game has nonetheless already been released in the App Store.
Playable on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years for iOS is a 3-D remake of the original sequel to Final Fantasy IV, which made its debut on mobile devices in Japan in 2008.
Set a couple of decades after the events of Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years sees the return of classic characters as well as the introduction of new ones, most notably including Ceodore, son of Cecil and Rosa:
Seventeen years have passed since the war's end, and the son born to King Cecil and Queen Rosa of Baron has grown into a young man. Prince Ceodore has enlisted in the airship fleet known as the Red Wings, eager to meet the expectations demanded of his blood and station. Yet once more another moon has appeared in the sky, and with it vast hordes of monsters intent on destruction. The brief peace enjoyed by the Blue Planet now stands threatened under the shadow of impending catastrophe.
The game features 10 playable tales, a nonstop action battle system, lunar phase-based combat, unique band abilities, a mini-map, and Game Center integration.
