Final Fantasy IV: Ultima v20k NG+ Edition

20 December 2020 7:53AM EST - Update by Ace_Aileron

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Final Fantasy IV: Ultima is considered to be the apex of the FFIV rom-hacking genre and with the introduction of a New Game Plus feature, it once again has pushed the boundaries of what’s possible within the FFIV universe.

While many editions use the foundation of Final Fantasy IV “Vanilla” to bring a new experience (e.g. story, characters, randomization), Ultima provides a perfect amalgamation of everything loved about the original, as well as the components of the subsequent editions that made them unique: new dungeons, equipment and party swapping in FFIV: Advanced and a host of new abilities from the DS version. Additionally, Ultima has introduced players to things never thought possible for this game: enhanced items and equipment, magically-infused weapons, a host of new “super bosses”, and the pinnacle of the game; a boss rush where players get to challenge all the bosses they’ve previously conquered with a host of new surprises.

Each new release of FFIV: Ultima has brought a host of new content that makes every playthrough its own unique experience. While some releases had been originally flagged as the “final version” because there was simply no way to add additional content, the development team continues to shock the RHDN community by pushing the envelope, which speaks to the tenacity of those behind the curtains. With version 12, players once again found themselves experiencing new dungeons, items, and bosses but nothing would prepare the community for what would come next…a “New Game Plus” (NG+) mode – a feature that has been sought after since the game’s original release.

Not content with just bringing players a NG+ mode, the development team took things a step further and increased both the level and stats cap for characters which opens during the NG+. A player who took the time to grind all their characters to level 99 would not find themselves limited in their secondary playthrough but could strengthen their party to new heights never experienced or thought possible. This allows players to not only have a brand new experience but helps provide a more leisurely approach to even the game’s most challenging content.

On behalf of the Final Fantasy IV: Ultima development team, thank you for your continued support as the game surpasses 20,000 downloads and here’s to 20,000 more!

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Final Fantasy IV - Ultima version 6.0 is out!!

This is a huge update with many new additions such as new enemies, new bosses, new items and gears, new map locations, new scenarios and events, and much much more. But the biggest of the update is the newly implemented Custom Enemy Graphics! This was something that was always intended to be added to the hack since the beginning but was never able to be done until recently, with the help of the amazing hacker chillyfeez! It was a tireless work for the past couple of months creating, coding and implementing these new custom enemy graphics, and this news article is to showcase the results to everyone! :) Huge, huge thanks to chillyfeez for the help in this because this would not have been possible without his help! Much appreciation and credit to chillyfeez!! :)

Hope you’ll all check it out and enjoy this hack immensely!

Final Fantasy IV - Ultima (FINAL VERSION v5.12f)

22 October 2019 8:30PM EST - Update by 8.bit.fan

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Final Fantasy IV - Ultima version 5.12f is finally out! It has been quite a journey creating and updating this hack, however, it has finally arrived at the end in its final form.

Originally, about a year ago, this project began as an addendum to the vanilla game: FF2SNES. The idea was to make a few polish here and there, and reuse some of the empty space and dummied out contents in the rom to create some meaningful and new weapons/spells/gears to spice up the core FF4 experience. However, as time went by, with the combination of new ideas that kept popping up and suggestions from many players of this hack, more and more goodies was added to the hack to a point where Final Fantasy IV - Ultima had become its own personality. In its final form, not only has the hack been treated with new goodies and a few extra endgame additions as it did back in v1.0, but it is now loaded with a ton of extra content such as new side-quests, new scenarios, new weapons and much much more throughout the entire game from start to finish…plus a fairly good sized endgame adventure in addition as well. Here are a few notable features of this hack:

  • 32 New Weapons! 21 New Spells! 20 New Bosses!!
  • Fully Detailed Equipment Screen!
  • New Attack Animation that scales to your Power!
  • Dual-Wielding Dark Knight Cecil!
  • New Side-Quests! New Events! New Endgame Scenarios!!

Barring any bug fixes or polish updates, this should be the FINAL VERSION of Final Fantasy IV - Ultima. So if you haven’t already, do give it a download and check it out! Hope you’ll all enjoy this hack immensely and feel free to reach out if you have any questions and/or comments! Cheers!! :)

Final Fantasy IV - Ultima

11 September 2018 1:06AM EST - Update by 8.bit.fan

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

A ‘deluxe’ version of Final Fantasy II for the SNES. A beloved classic that was nerfed quite a bit when it was released back in 1991 in the US. Using editors such as ff4kster, it was quickly revealed that LOTS of content was dummied out and there were empty space for extra content.

This hack creates a ‘deluxe’ version of the game by using most of the available space to add a bunch of extra content such as:

  • 22 NEW WEAPONS
  • 11 NEW SPELLS
  • 8 NEW BOSSES, etc.

The story and the feel of the original game are kept more or less the same. Project II was used as a base for this.

Hope everyone enjoys the hack! :)
