I was thinking about buying TAY on WiiWare, but then I saw that the PSP is getting Final Fantasy IV Collection later this year in Japan, which will include an updated 2D version of FF4 as well as The After Years, AND a new scenario to tie the stories together seamlessly. If the 3DS got this it'd be freaking sweet.

Does anyone have a friend whose uncle who works at Squeenix and knows something about this? Or is there no chance of this happening for some reason? I remember Square had an unnamed Final Fantasy 3DS title listed at last year's E3 -- could this be it?

It's unlikely but I think it's an oversight by SE though. The game comes out after the 3DS and they've had plenty of time to port it and it would be good to establish the brand quick on the 3DS.

Not sure but wasn't that game revealed to be a Chocobo racing game for 3DS? could be they are working on both a FF game and a racing game though.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

@Reala: Nope, they listed Final Fantasy as well as Chocobo Racing.

FFIV has not been confirmed for 3DS. I think SE will wait to see if the 3DS takes off before it starts to properly support the console with its flagship title.

But they already announced Dragon Quest for 3DS.:P

But seriously that's only half joking, FF might sell more worldwide(but the gap is smaller now:D) but Dragon Quest is Square Enix's prestige franchise and it's likely they'll support the 3DS just as much as they supported the DS.

They formally announced that an actual, numbered, Dragon Quest game (not an offshoot) was announced for the 3DS?

If so, colour me impressed.

No, not yet(mainly because X hasn't even had screenshots yet) but DQ has only ever appeared on the most successful platforms and that includes the spin offs. Also after DQIX it's a bit of a no-brainer that XI will be a 3DS game.

Yeah, but this would be a simple port -- unless they decided to do some fancy 3D effects or something. We've already seen footage of at least one game they're working on (Chocobo Racing), which probably requires a lot more effort/money than porting a PSP game.

It's about image, not practicality.

That was my point. There's no guarantee that XI will be on the 3DS, because there's no guarantee that the 3DS will be the most successful platform.

SE won't be confirming that one for a while, I suspect.

It's about making money. FF has been on every Nintendo handheld: The Final Fantasy: Legend RPGs on GB, the multitude of remakes on GBA, and III and IV remakes on the DS. They're already investing in the system anyway, and a port of an FF remake seems pretty safe to me, lol.

My guess is either the 3DS came around while they were too far into development, or a 3DS version would require too much effort to take advantage of the 3D (besides, who wants to look at 3D sprites like that). Or both even.

One day. When the console hits a critical mass.

Square Enix isn't going to put out a Final Fantasy game on a console with a small install base. By the time it grows to be anything significant, that Final Fantasy game will be on discount or sold second hand, so SE would effectively miss out on an opportunity.

It's not often that a FF game is released within a reasonable launch window of a console.

It's entirely possible that there will be some kind of port. but for now, there's no plans.

With DQ though it doesn't matter whether it's a mainline game or a spin off, they are still only on the most successful systems. The fact that any DQ whatsoever has been announced for the 3DS is a good indication that Square Enix thinks it will be big.

They've never been in a situation where it would be simple to release a game near launch though. The game was in active development at the same time they got their 3DS kits and they wouldn't have to change anything. There would also be a few benefits such as benefiting off high launch sales, establishing the brand on the system and also to compensate for the fact that PSP games aren't selling great in the west any more.

Don't get me wrong. I love Final Fantasy IV to death. It's the first FF I ever played and one of my favorite games of all time. I will be getting the PSP version of this in April. But, if the announced 3DS FF is a remake, I hope it's V or VI. Both are so overdue for some attention, especially V which is maybe the most unjustly ignored of the series. Of course, I'll just be happy for Final Fantasy on 3DS. As long as it's not as linear as XIII, LOL.

I'd love a FFV remake too, but I'd like to see this released first. After all, this is already made -- just needs to be ported over.

But I agree, I would rather have FFV or FFVI remade. I'd be happy with both, but more so FFV because I don't own it :P
