Final Fantasy IV

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Final Fantasy IV is a role playing game for the Super Nintendo.

Translation Description:

This is an English translation the original Japanese version of Final Fantasy IV for the SNES.

This translation is very impressive, especially with the 3.21 update that fixes lots of bugs and makes the translation near-perfect. Of course it’s received tremendous criticism due to Trainspotter’s script revisions; apparently some people demand an untouched Japanese game to play in English.

User Review Information

Gave me what I wanted

Reviewed By: POWCo-op on 24 Feb 2019

The US version of FF4 suffers from a title screen that says FF2 and it has easier monster stats. It also has every path visible and no hidden passages. But I didn’t want to play an easier game; I wanted to play the original. If you’re looking to play the original FF4 from Japan you’ll be pleased with this translation.

Version 3.21 Recommended - Yes
