Final Fantasy IV - Summary

Fully reimagined, FINAL FANTASY IV arrives on Nintendo DS featuring glorious 3D graphics, all-new voiced cutscenes and amazing CG adapted to dual-screen presentation. The engaging turn-based gameplay and dramatic storyline are renewed with added detail and depth, resulting in a classic RPG experience that is both reminiscent of the original and thoroughly innovative in its own right.


Now with an enhanced Active Time Battle system, new translation and a beautifully remixed score from world-renowned composer Nobuo Uematsu, FINAL FANTASY IV makes a powerful return, more absorbing and accessible than ever before.


Four elemental Crystals, each possessing awesome power, lie scattered throughout the realm. However, men are quick to covet things which offer strength, and easily corrupted by the might which they possess...


Seduced by the promised power of the Crystals, the kingdom of Baron begins employing unprovoked force to seize them from peaceful nations. The dark knight Cecil – Lord Captain of Baron’s elite force, the Red Wings – is ordered by his king to obtain the Crystals, but soon begins to question the monarch's motives. Stricken with grief at his own actions, yet burdened by his loyalty to his country and his personal sense of honor, Cecil at last decides to turn from the path of darkness and destruction.


Enraged, the king accuses him of disloyalty, strips Cecil of his command, and sends him off to slay a mysterious beast that lurks in the nearby Valley of Mist. Cecil embarks on a fateful journey that will bring trials, betrayals, friendship, loss and self-discovery. Can Cecil open his eyes and become the man of honor that he must be?

    I was hoping this game would do well so they could port FF v and VI to the ds and 3ds but I guess they're only going to do Dragon quest remakes.

    Good, a fair Score... DS version is much better than PSP Version. Totally agree with @Fededx

    It's a great game, one of the best RPGs of all time. Loved the remake, this is a true remake, not like the PSP port...

    Ok, I just wasted 40 hours on this game. Now I know for sure that Final Fantasy is not for me. It was as much fun as going to the dentist, complete with reading the cheesiest dime novel in the waiting room.
