I wasn't going to get this out of principle (I just bought FFIV Advance last year), but wow... these look good. Not to mention they're actually using both screens for battles now!

I dont like the style. Ill be straight to the point. It fit the much more lighthearted FFIII but for FFIV-its too childish for as dark a story as FFIV did have at point (I think it STILL holds the record for most character deaths out of the series)...the characters now look like kids. at least the old battle sprites they looked older. t hey looked mature. im afraid of what Edge is going to look like...

Being my favorite, I'm glad this is getting a 3D makeover too. I'm getting it.

Holy.....crap that's improved a bucketload since the original magazine scans long ago, which looked horrendous imo.

[EDIT] Man, they butchered Yang's looks, I don't think I can take him seriously as a character anymore.

True...but at least the sprites ARE taller than in FF3 DS, where they just looked like little 10 yar old kids

If the graphics can have this good of quality, I'm eager to see what other companies are going to do. I don't really care how the characters look compared to the plot, I'm concerned about how nice the actual graphics are. Those are some smooth lines, and it's such a crisp look too. I'm VERY curious to see what other games are going to get a make-over. I have several GBA games I wouldn't mind re-buying if a face-lift were the ONLY thing they got. (though a sound upgrade wouldn't hurt).

I personally don't think they look any more childish now than they did in chibi sprite form. Cecil looks more brooding now, Rosa looks more troubled now, if anything, they express their character emotions better this way.

Yeah, no DS game can be that clean.

The jaggies are usually less noticable on a DS screen than they are in a true-screenshot. I kinda prefer it this way, as straight-from-DS screenshots tend to look horrific and pale on PC monitors, albeit they look great and fine on the actual system.

Yes, since 16x16 sprites so suited IV's "dark" (the hell?) story. And let us not forget VII's LEGO people! How in the world did that fit VII's dark story? Honestly, get over it. This style is alright for IV, kinda like it was for all FFs until VIII just had to come along and change it. And I don't know if you know, but if you compare these character models to III's... You'll notice they are taller and more realisticly shaped (besides the head). Reminds me of IX and since IV and IX are pretty similiar, I don't see that as a bad thing. When I look at these screens, I don't see, in any way, how these characters look like kids. Rosa being the prime example. Compare Rosa's model to Refia's or even Aria's for that matter (they are pretty close in age). Rosa doesn't look like a kid, sorry.

I know each can prefer his style, but these character models are certainly an improvement over III's and deny it as much as you want, up until VIII, chibi/deformed characters was the route FF took when it came to its character models/sprites. I believe there are more FFs without realistic character models than there are with realistic character models. So no, I really don't see how this doesn't fit, since it has almost always been this way, sorry.

BTW, not to burst your buble, but IV did not have the most character deaths since, well, only one (playable) character really died. =/

IMO, since the first showing the style has changed to better fit the mood of the game, they don't look like weird half-chibi monsters anymore, they look better than the FF7 characters for sure, more detailed, and those characters worked fine for that game.

True, but then you have to remember that when you are playing the screensize and pixeldepth make things looks much smoother. Just look at Chocobo Tales for instance. It looks very clean.

Way better than Final Fantasy III...waaaaaay better.

I like seeing developers improve upon their engine and it looks like this team who's behind these DS remakes are finding ways to use the DS's power in many ways.

Man, I just can't wait for FFVI! I hope that gets a remake as well!

It looks nice, but the thing that I like most about those pictures is the battle scene with four enemies! The three enemy limit in FFIII bothered me (yes, I know, there was one exception).

Square-Enix really has put a lot of effort into making this project (and other works) into one fine piece of work. Aside from the graphics, the art direction is also on a whole new level. Now if only other third-party companies would put this much effort into making truly quality-driven games.
