Full 3D sequel offers classic characters with new heroes and ten playable tales
Nearly 20 years after Final Fantasy IV's release, a full 3D remake sequel has been released for iOS. Final Fantasy IV: The After Years includes classic characters alongside new heroes, such as Ceodore, son of King Cecil and Rosa of Baron. Another moon has appeared in the sky, as well as new destructive monsters that threaten the world.
Final Fantasy IV: The After Years offers 10 playable tales, which begins with "Ceodore's Tale." Upon completion, players can unlock the tales of six additional characters, playable in any order, and then can return to the core story with "Kain's Tale," "The Lunarian's Tale," and "The Crystals." Lunar phases are present throughout game content, as the second moon's waxing and waning influences the potency of attacks and abilities of all combatants, and in-game events can unlock Band abilities for combining party members' strength.
Also included in the game release is a minimap for ongoing navigation and quick access to the world map, Game Center support and widescreen compatibility. Available on iTunes, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years can be purchased for $16, requiring iOS 4.3 or later.
Fantastical for Mac adds Reminder due times, performance improvements
An update to Fantastical for Mac has been released today, with its central new feature being Reminder due times. Users can enter their appointment or event in a sentence format, and it will be scheduled accordingly. Fantastical 2 for iOS was released with full Reminders support recently as well, meaning the two apps' features are now on par.
Additionally in Version 1.3.1 are a number of bug fixes, such as resolving issues with event updating from Outlook, and errors while running Fantastical with multiple displays on OS X Mavericks. Users can purchase Fantastical for Mac from the App Store for $20.
