    I dunno about you guys, but I am more stoked for this than FF13....which I probably won't even bother with after watching that kid play the demo. Something about the environments just kinda turned me off....anyway....

    A sequel to one of the best Final Fantasy games in the series? Could you really ask for anything cooler in 2009?

    I heard of it's release in Japan as a mobile phone game a while ago and figured it would be something we'd never see here...but then they said it would make its way to WiiWare sometime....

    There's been no official release date announced but Square put it in the coming soon section of their latest e-mail and they've created a microsite.

    I've heard May...and I've heard "later this year"...I'm really hoping it's May or at least sometime very soon there after and not like, December or something.

    This is probably one of my most anticipated games of 2009...FFII on SNES was always one of my favorite games and reminds me of my childhood.

    The story takes place 17 years after Final Fantasy IV and you play as the son of Cecil and Rosa. All the original characters making cameo's. Same style gameplay and graphics slightly updated (like the GBA remakes). I can't wait.

    Here are some screen shots:

    the only problem with this is that it was originally designed for a cell phone. I wonder if its really as good as a full length game

    I am pretty sure that the cell phones it was designed for were more powerful than an SNES was....and they seem to be redoing graphics and controls/menus...so it will be AT LEAST as good as Final Fantasy IV's gameplay...most likely improved upon a bit.

    Also it was released in chapters. The first one was free to get people into it then they'd release more parts of the story and it was actually a subscription service. You'd get the next part of the story once a month. This, obviously, will be released as one full game. It had over 3 million paid downloads in a year so I guess that's a good sign.

    Yeah that is kind of a bummer isnt it? I mean, I have a wii and I'll play it on there because it's the only option - but I was really hoping for like....xboxlive/psn or DS or something.

    I'm not really stoked about this...and I sure as hell am not buying a wii to play it. Probably won't even bother getting an emulator/rom for it (if those exist ever).

    FFIV was annoying, the game was fine but every single dungeon was annoying as fuck to get through, especially if you wanted all the treasure. FFV & VI > IV, but I really didn't like V it was just as, if not more, annoying than than IV was. You really had to have some spare time on your hands to get through some dungeons.

    I'd download it. Probably be the first time I turn on my Wii in over a year.

    It's the little yet awesome things like this I'm glad I have a Wii... that, except for playing these small little awesome surprises, sits unused.

    FF6 had a pretty solid ending though... what could it possibly be about?

    Perhaps the revival of magic/espers? That would probably lead to another war of the magi kind of thing :o
