Square Enix is bringing its bestselling Final Fantasy franchise to Android devices on the Google Play Store. The critically acclaimed classic RPG, Final Fantasy IV, which set the standard for role-playing games with its diverse cast of characters, deep plot and real-time Active Time Battle (ATB) system, has gone mobile. Based on the full 3D remake from 2008, players will now be able to relive this seminal title in the Final Fantasy series.
The game’s story focuses on four elemental Crystals, each possessing awesome power, that lie scattered throughout the realm. Seduced by the promised power of the Crystals, the kingdom of Baron begins employing unprovoked force to seize them from peaceful nations. The dark knight Cecil – Lord Captain of Baron’s elite force, the Red Wings – is ordered by his king to obtain the Crystals, but soon begins to question the monarch's motives. Stricken with grief at his own actions, yet burdened by his loyalty to his country and his personal sense of honor, Cecil at last decides to turn from the path of darkness and destruction.
Enraged, the king accuses him of disloyalty, strips Cecil of his command, and sends him off to slay a mysterious beast that lurks in the nearby Valley of Mist. Cecil embarks on a fateful journey that will bring trials, betrayals, friendship, loss and self-discovery. Can Cecil open his eyes and become the man of honor that he must be?
Gamers can witness the dramatic story of this mythical game world brought to life through 3D graphics, gorgeous CG cutscenes and solid voice acting.
