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.

Amazing

Reviewed By: AcidTango on 15 May 2016

This is by far the best translation of Final Fantasy IV for the SNES. The original American version by Square sadly wasn’t good and so were some other fan translations as well. But this one is very good because not only does it have everything from the Japanese version when it comes to content compared to the American version that had some removed, but the translation is well done. Download this to play the perfect version of Final Fantasy IV.
