    A discovery made on Japan's Xbox site suggests that Final Fantasy IV: The After, the direct sequel to the adventures of Cecil and the rest of the gang of FFIV, will come to the Xbox Live Arcade.

    Ok, it's a rather slim piece of evidence, but you know what, I'll take any piece of evidence I can get.

    According to 1UP, this link http://www.xbox.com/ja-JP/games/f/finalfantasy4/ appends the line "details.page/", but if you switch "finalfantasy4/" with "finalfantasy5/" the "details" string doesn't show up. This suggests that they registered the page to ready for a release of the game. This is supported by what Squeenix said before:

    I'm also posting this on the PlayStation 3 and Wii blogs because there's a chance it might end up there as well, since Crystal Defenders will be released on all three platforms.

    The After is a mobile game split into 12 chapters, released only in Japan. The protagonist is Ceodore, the son of Cecil and Rosa. The game is written and directed by FF4's original creator, Takashi Tokita.

    An interesting idea. Releasing the games we outside of Japan can't get for our mobile phones on other platforms. Here's hoping. [​IMG]

    Oh, and I fixed the topic title.

    That's a BS rumor. Besides, why Xbox? It barely got FFXIII and currently the original FF's as well as Tactics are owned by Nintendo.
    Sorry, no remake of the sequel for anyone. Get it on mobile and learn hiragana.

    Then please tell me why I, II, IV, V, VI and a Tactics games are on Sony consoles.

    Owned by Square-Enix, not Nintendo.

    Oh thanks, I was going to ask an admin or mod to change it [​IMG]

    Hopefully it does get ported because I'm just starting to get into the Final Fantasy series.

    That would be so awesome! Although it doesn't necessarily mean that if it happens, it will be localized... it might be just a Japan XBLM thing only.

    Hopefully other systems will get it too because I already know I won't get a 360 for a very long time, if at all >_> .

    They already made the sequel. It came out for cell phones around the time that the DS remake of 4 came out. If it comes out for phones, Xbox Live seems a bit glorifying to the game.
