Square Enix has just announced that Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection will be available for the PSP on April 19, 2011. It’s on the PSP, but if you are a Final Fantasy fan then you have to get this, though I know some folks who wish this was Final Fantasy VII, but guess we can’t be picky.
After 20 years, Final Fantasy IV and its acclaimed sequel, The After Years, are now combined into one package as the ultimate role-playing game experience. A cast of unforgettable characters fight through one of the grandest stories ever told with stunning new graphics, a re-arranged, award-winning soundtrack, and bonus game features that provide the absolute Final Fantasy IV experience.

Since its initial release in 1991 on the SNES, Final Fantasy IV has been popular across several platforms, and this year celebrates its 20th anniversary. With its high-quality graphics and scenarios, and the introduction of the active time battle system, Final Fantasy IV redefined role-playing video games and shaped Final Fantasy titles to come.
The After Years is a true sequel set more than a decade after the events of Final Fantasy IV. The story revolves around Cecil and Rosa’s son, Ceodore, as he ventures out to unravel the mysterious events surrounding the Blue Planet. In addition to the new characters, characters from the original title, such as Cecil, Rosa and Kain will be reunited. Players can enjoy the Final Fantasy IV experience with enhanced battles and the brand-new Band system feature.
Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection will be available for the PSP® system at retailers beginning April 19, 2011 for an affordable $29.99.
