Final Fantasy IV Comes to Android

July 17th, 2013 by Marc Comments

The retro game that all 90s kids will remember, Final Fantasy IV, is finally being launched on Android phones. It has been available for iOS system devices since November last year, and is now available on Android phones, meaning that users of brand new, up-to-date phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 can now also keep up with funky retro games.

Those who already remember the game will most certainly already be obsessed with it. It was initially launched in 1991 on the retro consoles Super Nintendo and then later on the Sony Playstation. In 2008 it was re-launched on the Nintendo DS, but due to the explosion of games being played on mobile devices, the game makers decided to bring it into the modern world. The game allows the user to follow Cecil, the Dark Knight, as he makes efforts to stop the invasion of an evil sorcerer from taking over the world. For those who want to know more, the Into Mobile website explores the game ( This game still manages to keep its retro charm from the 90s. If you have experienced this game before, you’ll be dying to try it again from the versatile platform of your mobile device. If you’ve never played it, you need to know what you’re missing out on and you will instantly fall in love with it.

Although it’s not a cheap game for phones, currently sitting at an expensive £10.99, if you’ve played the game before you’ll know that it’s worth the price. Android producers have faced great pressure over the past few months to match the iOS version, and although later than the version suitable to iOS operating systems, it’s been well worth the wait. It’s worth mentioning that the game currently only works on devices with an android Gingerbread or above operating system. But for those of us who remember the game from the 90’s, we’ll forgive anything…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
