1FluttershyGuyMon 30th Jul 2012 I found an interesting video on YouTube last night from a series called "Gaming Mysteries." It claimed that originally, Final Fantasy IV was going to be an NES game, and the SNES game know and love with Cecil & Company would've been Final Fantasy V. Mind blowing and sad to think of a Final Fantasy that wasn't. Also interesting to think how it would've changed the numbering. We'd be up to Final Fantasy XV now. Imagining it: Butz/Bartz in Final Fantasy VI, Kefka in FF VII, Cloud vs. Sephiroth in FF VIII, Squall FF IX, Zidane & return of crystals FF X, Tidus & Yuna FF XI (and FF XI-2), FF XII first FF online, The lovely Ashe in FF XIII instead of the lovely Lightning, FF XIV with Lightning, and FF XV the second online FF. Only plus is it's one less NES Final Fantasy that gamers outside of Japan had to wait years to finally play. Or maybe it would've come to US and been Final Fantasy II, while Final Fantasy II/IV SNES would've been Final Fantasy III for us! Also, blows my mind to think of a time when Square wasn't a gaming powerhouse, and was incapable of handling two projects at once (and was saved as a company only by the success of the NES Final Fantasies).Here's the video...

I put this in the Retro forum not only because it's a good place for it, but also I thought someone might remember hearing that FF IV was going to be on NES, circa 1990 or 1991.
