I would like to see a midquel between the original FFIV and The After Years, which should take place right in the middle, to explain everything that went on during the 17-year gap between the two previous installments.

I wouldn't mind seeing this happen, but I think FFIV is done as far as sequels go; for the time being at least. :|

This is torturous! This is madness!

Madness? THIS...IS...FFIV!

As i haven't started in on the final chapter of ffiv:tay, i can't imagine that there could be much of a game there. it seems like not much happened during those 17 years. certainly nothing worth making a game about. no super villains appeared and tried to take over the world until TAY.

But i wouldn't mind a game set in this world's distant past. when the lunarians first arrived and zeomus first had to be contained. maybe the main character could be cecil and golbez's father kluya? and maybe via some clever device our fave heroes could travel back in time and help out?

While I would be interested in finding out what happened between the events of both games I really don't feel it's necessary to make a whole new project for it. There are many other Final Fantasies that are worth revisiting before another sequel (or the like) to IV.

If not a game, then perhaps a movie, similar to FFVIIAC?

I just don't understand what could possibly happen in even a short story. It seems like we are given pretty much every last shred of info in TAY.

Oh... then perhaps a sequel to TAY? Another 17 years later?

Or perhaps they could NOT do whatever they possibly can to milk this game further?

The folks at SE shouldn't just put any random stuff in a sequel; they have to make it with quality plot elements that continue the storyline of the previous games.

Which... I can't ever remember them doing... OH! Unless you count Tactics Advance! That was a good game. And so was Tactics A2! So they just need to make a Final Fantasy IV Adva- oh, wait, never mind.

Can we get a FFV DS remake already? =D Or even a prequel to V about the Dawn Warriors? =D

Or perhaps a Final Fantasy III prequel about the Dark Warriors.

Why is it that half the games have more interesting backstories than actual plot events?

It's better than having no backstory at all, if you ask me. The first Final Fantasy had no backstories for the main characters. The original FFIII had no backstories either, but the DS remake gives them backstories and names.

I would LOVE a III or V prequel! And I don't know that the backstories were necessarily more interesting than the primary stories, just that they were SO good it gave you scope for imagination.

Unfortunately Squeenix did the backstory-as-game thing with Seiken Densetsu III (Secret of Mana 2) in the form of an AWFUL RTS called Heroes of Mana . . . and even though I HATE RTSs with every ounce of my soul, I LOVED playing the "prequel" to one of my fav games . . . right up until they totally FUCKED it up at the end. I'm worried they would do something similar with III or V.

Anyway, thread at hand . . . no, I wouldn't want a "midquel" to IV, but I wouldn't mind a prequel with Kluya as the main guy. Or a sequel set so far in the future that Cecil and that lot are but myths.

Good ideas, Bastian.

Bastian

Yes, I'm full of it.

Er. Ideas.

A few months ago I read over at the RPG Maker forum that someone was doing a sequel to take place after tAY. Sounds ambitious!

Great! I'd like to see it soon.

I would like to see the world of Final Fantasy IV again, someday. Bastian had a good idea about revisiting the world in a sequel that takes place long after the events of Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.

Whoa, by that time, Ceodore could have his own child, making Cecil a grandfather...

That just-so-happened to remind me of the RPG Maker midquel to Final Fantasy IV, Time and Again. :)

FF is the best story line to movies and to play games. Hope the sequels are as best as the first is.
