Some fans of Final Fantasy IV may not remember this, but the game did yield an official sequel. Final Fantasy IV: The After Years was originally released in 2009 as a downloadable WiiWare title before coming to the PSP as part of Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection. This week, Square Enix announced (via Siliconera) that it would remake The After Years with updated 3D visuals as a mobile title.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years takes place 17 years after the original game and follows the story of Cecil and Rosa's son, Ceodore Harvey. Much of the cast of FFIV return, some of them playable for the first time. The 3D remake will be similar to the one that FFIV got for the DS in 2007.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is coming to iOS and Android this winter and you can watch the first teaser below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      How many times are we going to remake 4 and 5. I hope an FF6 (USA) remake is on the horizon for next-gen, not handheld. So all FF7 fans realize they have been worshiping a false-god and will humbled by the awesome that is FF6.

        I'm not sure FF6 would translate well to next-gen system, but I would love to see a 3DS version.

      Wasn't The After Years considered pretty bad by people who actually played it? I remember reading a brief synopsis of the plot years back and getting a poor impression of it.

        Yeah I heard the same sort of things. Still, I'll probably end up playing this remake.

        It's not exactly stellar material, no. It's more like fanfiction than anything else.
