Final Fantasy IV Translation Comparison: Intermission

No Comments

If you’ve read through all of the pages so far, I gotta say that you’re amazing! There’s so much to read that it must’ve taken a really long time.

At the time of this writing, about a year and a half has passed since I first started my Final Fantasy IV comparison. That means that on average, it’s been about one or two updates a month. At first I mostly compared the Super Famicom and Super NES versions of the game, but because I’m such a crazed fan I couldn’t stop! I had to compare more and more and more! Eventually it got so bad that I wound up comparing every version of the game and posting about every single line in the game.

That’s cool and all, but holy crap is it exhausting. It essentially multiplied the amount of work by five or ten times, so even though I’d love to keep analyzing the game at this level, I realized that I need to scale it back a bit lest I burn myself out. So future pages will go back to focusing mostly on the Super Famicom and Super NES releases, with mentions of the other versions when something really stands out.

In the past year and a half I’ve literally received hundreds of e-mails and messages about my Final Fantasy IV comparisons, it’s been incredible. So even though I haven’t been able to respond to everyone I just wanted to say that I really appreciate the feedback and that it’s been great connecting with other big fans of the game. I’m usually known as an EarthBound guy, but my passion for Final Fantasy IV is just as strong, if not stronger, so this has been a fun experience so far.

Anyway, all that mushy stuff aside, the next half of the game is full of story progression, so I look forward to digging into it and sharing my findings!
