It looks like the Wii sequel to Final Fantasy IV, titled Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (or, in Japanese, Final Fantasy IV: Tsuki no Kikan) may actually make its way to North America-- as was rumored back in the fall.


How do we know? Well, Kotaku has learned that the Entertainment Software Review Board (you know the ESRB-- those people who are fairly ineffectual at keeping adult games out of the hands of children?) has rated the game (E for everyone, yay!). Here's the full description:


FINAL FANTASY IV: The After Years


Platform: Wii


Rating: Everyone


Content descriptors: Alcohol Reference, Mild Fantasy Violence


Rating summary: This is a 2D role-playing game in which players embark on an adventure involving magical crystals and a mysterious kingdom. Players traverse across a field map or through dungeons and can enter into turn-based battles along the way. Players use a menu screen to select attacks or magic spells against tiny enemies (e.g., leopards, birds, knights, fish monsters, etc.) that blink and disappear when defeated. An item called "Bacchus Wine" is occasionally used to defeat enemies in battle.


No clue when this will come out, but I for one am now looking into budgeting for a Wii.

Well the one on the cell phone was a sequel to FFIV (roughly... 15ish years later from the original FFIV plot? I don't remember since I read about it a long time ago) and since this is named with the subtitle of "After Years," I'd hope that it's the same sequel as the one on the cell phone. I know that it revolves around Cecil's son I and there's new characters and stuff. That's all I know about that since I haven't played it...

What RedRoses say-- it's a port of a sequel. :)
