I'm sure this will be merged with it...or, you know, be deleted :p

A pic from the link SuperPhillip gave in the other thread:

(I linked the page since the pic was rather large)

Looks awsome, I must say. Much taller characters than that of FF III.

Just speculating here but I wonder if this means a FFV and FFVI 3D remake in the future. Although not for a while, the GBA versions only came out last year.

I hope they take their time and not screw up these badass classics too much.

05-11-2007, 07:17 AM
Well, since I just bought FFVIA a few months ago and am still not done with it, if they come out with FFVIDS I will bang my head against the wall, then buy it and toss it aside for a few months.

05-17-2007, 02:33 AM
Why would they bother remaking it, besides an attempt to make even more money on a 10 year + game? It seems kind of pointless to me. Maybe they just completely ran out of ideas for new Final Fantasy games.

I can't support this plan of action. I can only imagine how badly they'd screw up on the remakes:

Shitty music
Shitty character design
Incredibly long battles

Hey, wild idea: how about they drop the FF spin-offs/sequels/remakes for a while and concentrate on giving the other series proper continuation. I'm thinking new chrono and decent seiken densetsus.
Don't you miss the days when it was easy following FF games (1 then 2,3, etc) instead of FFVII: The Dio Story - part II (mobile phone version), or FF V - the PSP port of the DS remake of the enhanced GBA version which adds the FFA bonuses and proper translation of japanese SNES version (v1.3). It's getting ridiculous, they actually make the Street Fighter games easy to count in comparison.
That being said, I'm curious of how those DS remakes will turn out.

wow, i do think they are over doing all these remakes.

Although i must admit those screenshots look pretty damn awesome, it would be better if there wasn't alredy loads of remakes already.

(this has been rereleased on psone GBA and wonderswan already.)

Shouldn't this be in the FFXIII and beyond section like FFI/FFII/FFT PSP were?

Interesting. I still haven't finished playing the GBA versions.

06-02-2007, 03:34 AM
ahhhh I can imagine now fighting Zeromus in 3D..............I love that game..........still going through VI though.

06-06-2007, 05:38 PM
Can't wait for this. Final Fantasy IV is one of the best games in the series.

06-06-2007, 08:09 PM
They are remaking it in a better way than most remakes have been so far. Originally, because of time restraint and other similar reasons, they had to cut the script of the game by about 75 percent (according to a recent interview with the game's scenarist). They are now thinking of ways to bring back some of those "missing" parts while adding much more to the game.

Their goal, according to the same article, is to bring back the game in full 3D(which according to them will improve the dramatics of the cut scenes), giving something new by adding more dept to the script, while maintaining the feel of the original game.

So far, I really like how they rendered the art of Amano in 3D.

Being one of my all time favorite FF, I'll certainly get this game as soon as it comes out.


06-06-2007, 08:27 PM
Same here. The day this comes out in Europe, the day I finally buy a DS. (Up until now I've been trying to avoid buying one as I already have a PSP).

06-06-2007, 11:32 PM
Wow that trailer was cool, but there is one amongst them that actually has subtitles added for it so look for that one 'cause I'm sure you'd wanna know whats going on. I'd post the link myself but I just shut the tab >.<

That trailer looked very good and by the sound of music from the site as well we may get some revamped music al la celtic moon maybe. Some of the stuff they did for FF III was nice.

But I got to say the battle with the tanks and airships against the tower of Zotin the trailer. Looked great.

06-08-2007, 10:32 PM
I've never liked this Final Fantasy, but it looks like it's going to change with this remake. Awesome trailer. :)

How come you didnt like IV? Was it the plot, graphics, music?

06-09-2007, 08:17 PM
He probably was too young to play it when it came out. Then he played His first FF with FFVII... :P So FFIV is not too good because it's sooo old the graphics will hurt his eyes.

(just a supposition)

06-09-2007, 08:38 PM
I played it when it was released and I didn't like it then. I still don't particularly care for it now, but I don't hate it.

I really like sprites, though. I mean, look at VI, it's still gorgeous.

I was just asking out of curiosity really. For me as much as I love IV there are just a few parts that I found a bit hard to imagine, the size and scale of some of the scenes. i.e. The attack on the tower the dwarfs made as a distraction so the others could sneak in. Seeing it remade in the trailer just made me go wow.

I understand that some may say that is partly for your imagination to add to. With games especially ff I feel its about being wrapped up in their story, their world and interpretation of that.

Maybe I am hoping in a fan-girl way that the remake will do this.

( sorry if this is or is leading down a path that is off topic, I will stop now)

P.s this was not a rant just my love off FF IV

06-11-2007, 12:01 PM
I really enjoyed playing this on the SNES, I think the enhanced graphics will be an interesting and positive thing for the series, let's hope they can pull it off!

It annoys me that a 3D remake is underway so soon after releasing an enhanced port on pretty much the same console. FF1, 2, 5 and 6 are probably soon to come to 3D as well.

I would have preferred another port, in the style of the PSP FF1/2 ports myself, so that both handhelds would have a version, rather than one handheld having two versions of the same game

06-12-2007, 06:17 AM
The DS doesn't have a version. The GBA has, and it's pretty much a downgrade from the original (there are slow downs and lags in battles ffs!!).

And since they are doing a lot more than enhancing the graphics, I welcome this remake so far with open arms. FF IV has always had a soft spot in my heart, and to see the game in an entirely new way like this sure pleases me like even a remake of VII couldn't.

Considering GBA games play on the DS, the point stands.

I'm not too fond of the graphics so far, especially in that style. I haven't seen a single person praise Cecil's look as a Dark Knight in this remake for that matter

Argus Zephyrus
06-13-2007, 12:31 AM
I don't like Cecil's new look. I hope everyone else looks better.

Nope, it doesn't stand. The DS is backward compatible, nothing else. Would you say that Final Fantasy VIII is a PS2 game because you can play the game on your PS2? Of course not.


I praise the "new" look of Dark Knight Cecil. It respects a lot more the designs from Yoshitaka Amano.

06-29-2007, 12:18 AM
im sorry.... the way i look at this remake is just another way to screw over the original version of the game.... i just can't get into the new graphics and how they intend to reinsitute more of the original story line.... i don't see what new things they could put into a game that had very little flaws to begin with.

Argus Zephyrus
06-29-2007, 02:50 AM
True that Dark Knight Cecil's new look goes along with Amano's design, I think they should rework the model's proportions. It's too, er, odd.

06-29-2007, 11:23 PM
the graphics haven't done that much justice for any of the characters that i've seen so far... if anything it made the game look worse.

07-05-2007, 07:36 PM
Impressive. I bought Chronicles some time ago. It was used but I wanted it nonetheless, but unfortunately the disc won't work so I don't know much about IV. I've heard good things though.

This looks amazing. I'm glad I haven't gotten around to buying FFIVGBA yet, though I'll be pissed if FFVI is remade in 3D...urgh.

07-05-2007, 10:32 PM
I want to see it on the PSP soon, I have 16 movies for that thing and an old Madden game. I'd like an excuse to actually get a game for it for once. FF IV is one of the FFs I will probably never get tired of playing, even though the PSX version is much harder than the SNES version.
