    News Post GIVEAWAY: Final Fantasy IV: The After Years for iOS!

    Courtesy of Square Enix Community and the fine team over at Square Enix DLG, we've got a free copy of FINAL FANTASY IV: The After Years for iOS at our disposal to give away upon launch later this month! For details and rules of entry, check below the jump.

    GIVEAWAY: Final Fantasy IV: The After Years for iOS!-ffivtay-jpg

    Though FINAL FANTASY IV: The After Years has graced the Wii eShop (episodic, 2009) and the PSP (April 2011, as part of FINAL FANTASY IV: The Complete Collection) platforms already, it has yet to see a mobile release outside of Japan. This updated release will feature the same 3D style as FINAL FANTASY IV on the DS, repurposed for the iOS and Android platforms.

    In order to win your copy of The After Years on iOS, all you need to do is post in this thread telling us two things:

    • What is your favorite thing about FINAL FANTASY IV?
    • What do you feel gives this game a replayability factor?
    You are welcome to carry on conversation on these points, but both must be addressed in your first post in order to qualify.

    The winner of the prize will be drawn at random out of qualifying entrants. The drawing will be streamed live via twitch.tv sometime shortly after the conclusion of the entry period (further details and livestream time to be determined post-contest). Qualifying posts will be counted until 23:59 29 November 2013, Pacific Standard Time.



    Please keep in mind that the prize is only for the iOS version of the software. At this time, no Android version will be available as a prize. If you wish to participate in discussion but cannot utilize the reward, please note in your first post that you will be unable to receive the prize.


    OFFICIAL RULES: No purchase necessary to enter. Only one entry allowed per user. Users may post multiple times in the interest of conversation, but only receive one entry. Users found manipulating the giveaway via multiple accounts will have all accounts disqualified, and duplicate accounts deleted as per forum regulations.

    I have a Galaxy S3, is that ios or Andriod? I'm pretty hopeless with new technology, but I'll give this thing a shot either way.

    What is your favourite thing about Final Fantasy IV?

    That's kind of hard to say, this game's got a lot going for it so it's hard to pin one thing down. I'd have to pick the music, becuase IV has a pretty memorable soundtrack. I think i was hooked as soon as I hard the Baron theme. Then there's the Battle of the Four Fiends and the music that plays whenever you have to fight Kain.

    What do you think gives this game a replayability factor?

    Probably it's simplicity when compared to other Final Fantasy games. You only need to level up in order to learn spells and abilities and in the DS version when you do a new game+ you get all the Augments from your previous playthroughs, so the more you play through the game the better your characters will start out.

    That would definitely be an Android. iOS is what the Apple devices use - iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. If you have any one of those devices, you'll be good to go. If not, thanks for participating in the conversation all the same!

    And thanks for clearing that up, not even a Google search answered the question for me (tsk tsk)

    Wow, nice giveaway! (Android user here)

    What is your favorite thing about FFIV?

    My favorite thing about FFIV is the adventure the entire story takes you through; The struggles you face with the characters, the awesome secrets you find along the way, and the places you explore and visit along the way. In summary, it is the adventure I like the most.

    What do you feel gives this game its replayability factor?

    FFIV was replayable because of its engaging story and the side quests. It had such an unforgettable, and amazing experience that you didn't want to just stop after one playthrough, you wanted to reexperience it over and over again with each additional playthrough.

    O_O I saw this linked from somewhere else and I had to give it a chance!!! And yes I have an iPad so I can use it if I win

    What is your favorite thing about FINAL FANTASY IV?
    KAIN!! but honestly its the way the story makes you hold on for the next move, its like a good movie where you never know whether all of the good guys are really good, and if the bad guys are really bad. I like the way Cecil has his transformation to paladin too, its a really strong point for his growth.

    What do you feel gives this game a replayability factor?
    I like to try to go through with different characters using different equipment when I play, so I know its the same game but using different abilities or trying out new combinations makes it fun!

    • What is your favorite thing about FINAL FANTASY IV?
    My Favorite thing about this game is the epic storyline. It gives me a reason to keep playing and it draws draws me into to the game even more.

    • What do you feel gives this game a replayability factor?
    I feel the Battles definitely give this game a replayability factor. Even if the battles were hard I would go back and try to beat them again because they were so fun to battle.

    Cool

    What is your favorite thing about FINAL FANTASY IV?
    Searching for hard-to-find items such as the Pink Tail, and the Bomb, Mage, Imp, and Cockatrice summon spells.

    What do you feel gives this game a replayability factor?

    The replayability factor for Final Fantasy IV has always been high to me because I love this game and have always played on any version available.

    What is your favourite thing about Final Fantasy IV?

    -I don't necessarily have a favorite aspect about the game itself. My brother got me into Final Fantasy when I was a kid, and I'm always excited for any FF I can get my hands on! I haven't played IV yet but wouldn't say no to giving it a spin!

    What do you feel gives this game a replayability factor?

    -The fact that this game has been remade multiple times must mean it's got something awesome to offer that keeps players coming back.

    What is your favorite thing about FINAL FANTASY IV?

    I enjoyed how it was very character-driven. Granted, most FF games (at least until X as I haven't played after that) are character-driven, but it seems that 4's characters have an even stronger influence on the story. In fact, it seems that 4 is all about the characters and not the conflict. Kain's conflict, the love triangle and Cecil's redemption definitely stick in my mind.

    What do you feel gives this game a replayability factor?

    The lack of classes means you don't have to ponder too much about how to tweak your characters. That in itself is not always a bad thing or a good thing - I have also immensely enjoyed 5 and its multitudes of classes, but given how much of an impact the characters have on the storyline, I think in this case, the lack of classes is a good thing so you can enjoy the story again and again.

    Favorite Thing:

    I'd have to say the music. It's been a number of years since I first played Final Fantasy IV, but I still get chills from hearing the Theme of Love. I consider Nobuo Uematsu's work in Final Fantasy IV and VI to be some of the greatest pieces he's composed. They definitely set the mood for the entire game for me personally.

    Replayability:

    What doesn't give the game a replayability factor? From the moment the Prologue Theme starts at the beginning of the game, you know the adventure's just begun. There's just so many new experiences you can have with the game. On my second play through I leveled Cecil absurdly high on Mt. Ordeals so the rest of my final party would be ridiculously strong as well. In the DS remake they added even more opportunities for new experiences with the augment system. There's just so much about the game, and the Final Fantasy series in general that begs for replays it's hard to narrow it down to just a few things. Drawing from my previous answer, I'd say to relive those moments when the music hits you, whether it's the Prologue, the Theme of Love, Battle with the Four Friends, etc.
