Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster Now Has a Release Date

A Classic Tale of Love and Redemption

The first three Final Fantasy games have been re-released in the form of the Pixel Remaster series, and now Final Fantasy IV is set to join them early next month. Final Fantasy fans will soon be able to re-live one of the series’ most iconic stories on PC and mobile devices–and with a shiny new coat of digital paint.

In this game, players will once again take on the role of Cecil, a dark knight of the kingdom of Baron, who is sent with his elite airship fleet the Red Wings to attack the kingdom’s neighbors. Distressed by his orders, Cecil decides to fight against Baron with the help of his trusted friend Kain and beloved Rosa.

However, Cecil’s past actions weigh heavily on everyone, and the struggle to redeem himself is far from easy. Players will be able to guide his journey to redemption beginning September 8th.

Game features will include:

  • Universally updated 2D pixel graphics redrawn for modern hardware, featuring iconic FINAL FANTASY character pixel designs created by the original artist and current collaborator, Kazuko Shibuya
  • Beautifully rearranged soundtracks, overseen by the original composer, Nobuo Uematsu
  • Improved gameplay, including updated controller controls, modernized UI, auto-battle options and more
  • Quality-of-life improvements including supplemental extras like the bestiary, illustration gallery, music player and the ability to save at any time

Also available are a variety of pre-purchase incentives on Steam, ranging from three specially rearranged music tracks to two limited wallpapers as well as a 20% discount. These special tracks transition from the iconic original versions of The Red Wings (Timelapse Remix), Main Theme of FINAL FANTASY IV (Timelapse Remix), and Battle 2 (Timelapse Remix) to the new arrangements. They’ll be available through early purchase or through the bundle on Steam, whichever works best for you.

The Final Fantasy IV Pixel Remaster will be available on PC and mobile platforms on September 8th, 2021.
