Final Fantasy IV Namingway Edition

Hack of Final Fantasy II

Description:

Final Fantasy IV Namingway Edition is an attempt to bring Final Fantasy IV (FFIIUS) closer to its Japanese counterpart. This uses the excellent work by vivify93, Project II, as a base.

Using modern names where possible, and abbreviations where necessary, all items, spells, commands, jobs, and monsters are renamed. Monster stats, including the final boss, are restored to their original, along with spell learning rates. Also added to the mix is a B button Dash rather than a toggle or just walking everywhere.

Also added is the original treasure chests and save point graphics. The maps have all been restored back to their original FFIV, including the Developer’s Room. Items now have extended descriptions.

In addition, the script has been heavily worked on recently to bring it as close to modern translations as possible within text limits of the game. This used the notes by Mato of Legends of Localization, as well as looking over the PSP and DS translations to hopefully offer the best script possible for the SNES version of the game.

Apply to a clean, unheadered Final Fantasy II US (1.1) ROM using Lunar IPS.

Best Script I've Seen.

Reviewed By: Homer177 on 14 Feb 2021

I really enjoyed this one. I’ve played through a few English translations over the years and this one tops them all. It doesn’t throw up random real-world pop culture references like in J2e’s offering (Particularly the line from Porom before the Baigan boss fight “Even William Shatner’s a better actor than you!”….yup, even after not playing it for nearly 20 years, that line still sticks out) and is much more polished than the original 1991 US release.

If you’re looking to do another play through on the SNES, this is the one to use.
