Square Enix may be bringing its lovely looking Final Fantasy spin-off stateside, with the company trademarking The 4 Heroes Of Light, a still unofficially announced video game from the RPG publisher.


More than likely, that's the Western name (or part of the name) of Hikari no 4 Senshi: Final Fantasy Gaiden—a role-playing game that features classic Final Fantasy-style turn-based gameplay and a job-like "Crown System"—released on the Nintendo DS in Japan this past October. It's a game we're looking forward to, given that we named it among the best video game costume and character design from 2009. The character design work from Akihiko Yoshida, who contributed to Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII, among others, might be worth keeping this one on your list of future Nintendo DS purchases.

Square Enix has not yet announced a localized version of Hikari no 4 Senshi: Final Fantasy Gaiden, but there's not much the company won't export these days.

I'm all for Square evolving their series, but something I have missed ever since IX is the overworld. I loved X, X-2 i really enjoyed the story (save the concerts, that was weird), and XII. I've yet to play XIII, though I intend to, I'm a FF fan. From the sound of it, it's like X in that it's all straight lines, but if the story engages me then I'll be happy. But I'd really like to see a beautifully rendered overworld, with towns, dungeons, and landmarks expanding upon entering them.
