    Wow, I didn't expect it so early and I0m not even sure if it's good news. We'll barely have some time to beat Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2 and enjoy it with the dedication and time it's due.

    On the other hand, I can't wait to play this game! I'm a big Squeenix fan and I hear everywhere that this is one of the best in the numbered series.

    totally agree on this one. The fourth was my favorite in the series so I'm really looking forward to it.
    I'll even be able to play it with my new DS [​IMG].

    That's great news! [​IMG] I honestly expected it more around the Christmas shopping season.

    This game is phenomenal. Probably my favorite on the DS so far and I couldn't understand the cut-scenes or the story. Now I'm glad I saved my third play-through for the English version [​IMG]

    Probably the next "big" one I'm waiting on. Should be great. Can't wait.

    sounds good but you know something, there hasn't been any official word from Sqaure Enix regarding FFIV's NA release

    I'm admittedly not a FF buff, so I'm not following you entirely, but FFIV DS is a re-make of the same FFIV that was on the GBA & FFII on the SNES. Just better. Cecil, Kain, Rosa, Rydia, Cid, Edge, Tellah, Yang, Palom & Porom, etc.

    New features include a "Decant Ability" system, crappy wi-fi & pochika stuff, auto-mapping with map completion bonuses, and more.

    Similar graphics and battle to FFIII DS, with more cut-scenes, voice acting, etc. and a better story.

    It's an excellent game overall.

    This FF4 is a remake of Japanese number 4 and USA snes FF2 you were talking about.
    The FF3 on DS is the remake of the "real" number 3 that came out on the NES and never released in English before the DS version.
