General Information

Developer: Square Enix

Publisher: Square Enix

Genre: RPG

FINAL FANTASY IV delivers one of the richest and most powerful stories in the series. It's filled with characters and scenarios that fans continue to love to this day. It focuses on the dark knight Cecil, who finds himself stripped of his position and rank when he questions his king's increasingly troubling orders. When he's sent on a simple delivery mission with his friend Kain, the shocking events that follow send him and a group of allies on an incredible journey of betrayal, love and redemption. This is the first game to feature the Active Time Battle (ATB) system, which combines turn-based and real-time elements to create fast-paced and strategic combat.

Even 30 years after release, Final Fantasy IV still shines as brightly as it did in 1991. Its genre-defining story and combat system coupled with the Pixel Remaster’s reorchestrated soundtrack and quality of life updates make this an iconic game you’d be a fool to miss. Much like Cecil struggles with his unwitting role as a killer for his king, I struggle to let go of Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster after spending a few dozen hours wrapping up its main quest. If you have even a modicum of affection for JRPGs, you will too.

Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster might not be the definitive version of Final Fantasy IV, but it's an excellent way to experience this classic, whether it be someone checking it out for the first time or a long-time fan replaying it for the umpteenth time.

Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster is a nigh-definitive rebuild of an essential entry in the series, revitalized with a new presentation and only lacking the bonus endgame content of other ports.

It’s a journey worth taking, though; the characters and story in Final Fantasy IV remain beloved of series veterans with good reason — and with Final Fantasy XIV’s next expansion Endwalker looking to be strongly inspired by Final Fantasy XIV, doubtless there will be renewed interest in this game. Just go in knowing what to expect — great story, solid but unremarkable mechanics — and you’ll have a blast.
