In addition to their PlayStation 4 release of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remastered, Square Enix have also continued bringing classic Final Fantasy games to Steam with their port of Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. This is a direct sequel to Final Fantasy IV, taking place two decades after its predecessor and focuses on the arrival of the “second moon”.
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years was originally developed as a mobile title in 2008 (Almost two decades after the original 1991 release of Final Fantasy IV), receiving subsequent ports on the Wii (Wiiware), PlayStation Portable and smartphone devices. This PC Steam edition features a full 3D makeover, a new opening movie by Visual Works and the inclusion of Achievements.
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is available for download via Steam from today, with prices ranging from $15.99 (Standalone game) to $22.99 (Bundle with both Final Fantasy IV and IV: The After Years).
