Wow, it's a great week to be a Wii owner. Well, we mean, it's comparatively great, if only because console competitors Xbox 360 and PS3 are getting absolutely nothing. On the other hand, all those Wii offerings were beat out for the top slot by a DS game that, in its original form, was released 17...

A comparison video between the original SNES game and new DS remake of Final Fantasy IV is available for your viewing pleasure above.

It's okay if you weren't that into Final Fantasy III. As Final Fantasy games go, it's down near the bottom of the list for many people, and even though grinding-on-the-go can be easier than doing the same in your living room, FFIII required a lot of effort. Final Fantasy IV, however, should totally...

Even though we've totally seen the TGS 2007 Final Fantasy IV trailer, it's worth seeing again now. One simple change has made it the perfect promotional vehicle for the North American launch of the game in July. That change is words. In anticipation of the English release of the remake, this...

Final Fantasy and card games go together like ... well, the other part of that simile depends on how much time you wasted trying to get rare items by playing Final Fantasy VIII's Triple Triad. In any case, card games and Final Fantasies go way back. The Japanese version of the Square Enix Members...

Making up for the three pitiful images it sent out when announcing Final Fantasy IV's stateside release, Square Enix has accompanied its FFIV announcement for Europe with twenty translated screenshots!

Spencer over at Siliconera is deep into the Final Fantasy IV remake, and has found more changes beyond new graphics, new abilities and wacky critters. Specifically, the bosses, which were hard enough to be irritating to RPG neophytes anyway, have had their patterns mucked around with, probably to ...
