Final Fantasy IV: The After Years screenshot comparison


What changes can gamers expect when the once mobile-exclusive Final Fantasy IV: The After Years comes to WiiWare? Siliconera decided to compare screens from the episodic mobile version of the game and new grabs from the upcoming WiiWare version to find out.

Apart from showing off more real estate on screen -- taking advantage of widescreen -- slight tweaks have been made to the game's menus. The WiiWare's version of the battle menu now displays maximum character health as well as the ATB bar (pictured above). As for the graphics, the game will reuse the sprites found in the mobile game, which Siliconera notes are actually borrowed from the original Final Fantasy IV adventure of the '90s. It's like a one-two punch of nostalgia and connecting your cell phone to a widescreen TV.
