Anybody that has cried/complained/punched a sibling/cut themselves because they felt the Final Fantasy series was poorly represented on Nintendo’s home invasion device, it’s time to dance dance dance!
Announced during Nintendo’s keynote today at GDC were two new Final Fantasy games for WiiWare, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord, as well as word that the classic NES and SNES iterations would be finding their way to the Virtual Console, starting with the first game in May 2009 (PAL regions will get it later in the year).
The After Years is a port of the Japanese mobile game which follows the adventures of Ceodore, the son of Cecil and Rosa from FFIV, which you can see in action at the top of this post. Yes, that’s all there is to see. Isn’t it beautiful? What is that? Velvet? My Life as a Darklord, on the other hand, is pretty much My Life as a King for the Twilight crowd, putting you in control of the Darklord’s daughter, tasked with booby trapping the family tower and keeping do-gooders from doing what they do.
I want FFIV: The After Years so feel free to donate some Wii Points or send money directly through PayPal. Yeah, it’s OK if you use your parents’ credit card.
