The original FINAL FANTASY IV comes to life with completely new graphics and audio as a 2D pixel remaster!

A remodeled 2D take on the fourth game in the world-renowned FINAL FANTASY series! Enjoy the timeless story told through charming retro graphics. All the magic of the original, with improved ease of play.

The Kingdom of Baron sent their elite airship fleet, the Red Wings, to attack the surrounding countries. Distressed by his mission, Cecil, a dark knight and captain of the Red Wings, decides to fight against the tyrannical Baron with his trusted friend and his paramour at his side. In his search for the crystals, Cecil must travel over land, under the ground, to the Land of Summons, and even to the moon. Join forces with Kain the dragoon, Rosa the white mage, Rydia the summoner, and many more skilled allies.

FFIV is the first title to introduce the dynamic "Active Time Battle" system, where time moves even during battle, giving the players an exciting sense of urgency.Thanks to the wide appeal of the game, this revolutionary system would be implemented in many future titles in the series.

What's new in version 1.0.2
Bringing you the main content of the update.

■ Alterations relating to battles
*Fixes to a bug where enemy action speed would become slower than originally intended in some situations.
*The length of time taken before the first action is made has been reduced for both allied and enemy characters.
*The amount of EXP received from enemies has been slightly reduced overall.

There is a possibility that the above three changes will make battle difficulty feel slightly harder than before.
We are very sorry to make updates that affect the overall game balance in this way, but they are intended to fix bugs to bring the game’s behaviour closer to how it was originally intended, and also to allow new players to experience the game in the best state possible.
Thank you for your understanding.

*The enemy item drop rates have been adjusted so that rarer items are now dropped more frequently.
*Some flying enemies have been animated to hover up and down in the air.
*A visual effect was added where the screen flashes if an allied character’s attack scores a critical hit.
*The time taken when transitioning between screens after escaping from battle has been reduced.

■ Alterations relating to maps and events
*Alterations have been made so that weapons and armour are sorted into attack (or defence) power order within their type category when using the auto-sort function on the menu screen.
