So, will this one hit WiiWare, too?

First, an admission: As much I loved that the folks at Square Enix ported the previously mobile-only Final Fantasy IV: The After (Years) to Nintendo's WiiWare service last year, I was let down by the final product.

As such, I'm not so sure I should be asking them to port the similarly mobile-only spin-off, Final Fantasy Legends: Hikari to Yami no Senshi (aka Final Fantasy Legends: Warriors of Light and Darkness), to the Wii as well. (The prologue of this multi-chapter title hit the Final Fantasy Mobile portal in Japan earlier this month. Here's a teaser trailer for it.)

I can't help but hope for it, though, because I think I'd be more likely to give the sprite-filled Final Fantasy Legends: Warriors of Light and Darkness a fair shake due to the fact that it isn't tied to an already existing Final Fantasy game (as was the case with The After Years).

If I ever finished IV, I was planning on downloading the After Years, but...I never got there.

Oh, you got stuck on the moon, didn't you? Or something like that?

Anyway, I'd focus on finishing IV if I were you -- if you're even interested in that. I'd only recommend The After Years if you really, really liked IV -- and even then it might disappoint.

I did like IV. And yeah...I was stuck on the moon...
