There are a lot of great RPGs out right now. Skyrim is considered one of the best ever and MMORPGs like WoW are more popular than ever. So, have you younger gamers ever wondered where these masterpieces came from? From older masterpieces, of course! Square Enix has been in the business of releasing SNES RPG classics as of late. They’re continuing the trend by announcing that Final Fantasy IV will be coming to Android.
Final Fantasy IV is considered by most gaming authorities to be among the greatest RPGs of all time. It was the among the first with a cohesive story line and a memorable cast of lovable characters. It also introduced the Active Time Battle system, which many RPGs today still use to some degree.
Of course, it was a 16-bit game, which means a lot was left to the imagination. But when you start a game by murdering a bunch of innocent people and stealing their crystal, you know you’re in for a ride.
The expected release date will be Spring 2013 and it can’t come soon enough. Square Enix had some issues with their release of Chrono Trigger, as tablets couldn’t play it correctly. There were other bugs as well. Here’s hoping that Square Enix learned their lesson before releasing Final Fantasy IV.
Many older RPG fans will agree that Square Enix reviving the classics is only a good thing. Who will be buying it come Spring?
