Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy 4 will be launching September 8 on PC (Steam) and mobile platforms, as part of the Final Fantasy pixel remaster series, joining the previously released Final Fantasy 1, 2, and 3.

This remastered version of Final Fantasy 4 features updated 2D pixel graphics, modernized for current hardware, as well as newly arranged soundtracks overseen by original composer Nobuo Uematsu. It also features updated controller support, modernized UI, auto-battle options, illustration gallery, bestiary, music player, and the most helpful feature of all – saving anywhere.

Final Fantasy 4 originally launched on 1991 for the Super Nintendo, and was a major leap forward for the series and the RPG genre. It was the second Final Fantasy game ported to the US, and many of us played it as Final Fantasy 2. It tells the story of Cecil, a dark knight who turns against the evil empire, searches for the magic crystals, and makes powerful friends along the way.

You can pre-purchase Final Fantasy 4 on Steam to get three specially rearranged music tracks, two wallpapers, and a 20% discount.

The first three Final Fantasy games have been released as pixel remasters, with 5 and 6 coming soon. All six games can be purchased as part of the Final Fantasy I-VI Bundle for a 22% discount. These older Final Fantasy games are rated E10+.
