Complete it to unlock the tales of six additional characters, which can be played in any order, and then return to the core story with "Kain's Tale," "The Lunarian's Tale," and "The Crystals." A total of ten tales in all, and all contained in FINAL FANTASY IV: THE AFTER YEARS.

Seventeen years have passed since the war's end, and the son born to King Cecil and Queen Rosa of Baron has grown into a young man. Prince Ceodore has enlisted in the airship fleet known as the Red Wings, eager to meet the expectations demanded of his blood and station. Yet once more another moon has appeared in the sky, and with it vast hordes of monsters intent on destruction. The brief peace enjoyed by the Blue Planet now stands threatened under the shadow of impending catastrophe.
What's New in Version 1.0.1
The following bugs have been addressed:
- The Spirit and Soul monsters now appear in the Bestiary for Rydia's Tale.
- The Gray Bomb, Bomb, and Cockatrice monsters now appear in the Bestiary for Edge's Tale.
- Players now exit to the proper location when leaving Chocobo Forest near Mount Ordeals.
- Golbez and Fusoya spelling errors have been corrected.
- Dualcast is now correctly affected by moon phases.
- Various other minor bugs
Far better than I expected from past versions reviews. plays identical to FFIVDS and that's a good thing. Story works more as a reunion/follow up on the existing characters than breaking new ground, although certain new characters get a good amount of development and become memorable. This is the first time a FF "sequel" has felt like a true sequel and not a bastardized spinoff meant to feel like something taken in an entirely new direction. I'de gladly take sequels to 1-3, 5, and 6 in this manner. Even if it's on an episodic format.
Good game but falls short
Some glaring problems, revisiting the SAME DUNGEON for the FIFTH TIME gets tedious, Bands system has changed and is now brainless (possibly a plus? Think Chrono Trigger techs).
Large story holes and some minor flaws in translation (baron guards say Baron before anything else they say), battle is solid, love the updated graphics. No challenge dungeons so be prepared for that but the game is still quite enjoyable without them.
FFIV fan must-play, if you've played TAY already don't expect a whole lot of new shtick. Story gets dull and repetitive at times.
What happened here???
You know, when you remake a game where every previous release had the same content, everyone assumes the latest remake will follow suit. Square, what made you think removing content that ADDED replay value to this game was a good idea. And then failing to mention said content was removed in the description? Either keep the content in the game or just don't bother with the remakes. If you're going to make these games overpriced, the least you could do is keep the bonus content in them.
