Port of Japanese cell phone sequel listed by the ESRB.
After the success of the original Final Fantasy IV spawned a gorgeous remake so many years later on DS, a sequel has been confirmed as coming to the Nintendo Wii: Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Though already available in Japan via cell phone download, we'll finally be seeing a port to the more accessible (and hopefully easier-controlling) Wii sometime soon.
Following the story of Ceodore, the son of Cecil and Rosa of Final Fantasy IV, this sequel will play out seventeen years after the events of the previous game. Ceodore, now prince of Baron, has just become a knight much like his gallant father, King Cecil. While traversing the land on his first assignment, he notes the reappearance of the planet's second moon. From there a new story unravels that very little is known about.
Personally, I am hoping this sequel gets the whole Wii game treatment rather than a small release in installments on WiiWare similar to the cell phone original. Final Fantasy IV was a fantastic entry into the series that deserves much more than a short (but sweet) WiiWare follow-up. Here's to hoping for an expedited US release!
