And the power of the crystals is the perfect means to achieve an unthinkable goal.
In 2008, Square Enix released a major remake for the portable Nintendo DS. Although largely faithful to the original, Final Fantasy IV (DS) does contain several enhancements, including new minigames and features, voice acting, CG cut-scenes, New Game Plus, and a new translation.
