160w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video today featuring Square Enix's Takashi Tokita speaking on Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection and PSP RPG games.

To quote: Takashi Tokita is a name well respected among Square Enix fans, having helmed classic RPGs from Parasite Eve (newly resurrected for PSN) to Chrono Trigger.

Now he's overseeing the restoration of one of the earliest games of his career with Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection, coming to PSP on April 19th.

On the cusp of Final Fantasy IV's 20-year anniversary, Tokita explained his goals for The Complete Collection. The basic expectations are well and truly met: You'll get remastered high-res artwork that takes full advantage of the PSP's widescreen display, eye-catching new 3D special effects, an updated English translation, and two soundtrack options.

Also, for the first time in North America, FFIV will be presented in its pure, uncensored form, which will primarily translate to a few skimpier outfits and a handful of mature references omitted from previous releases.

What won't change is the story, which...

To quote: With DISSIDIA 012[duodecim] FINAL FANTASY out this week, I thought I'd share some videos that show the various EX Burst attacks. You can watch them below!

But first: what is an EX Burst? EX Burst is equivalent of a super move in a game like Street Fighter. Each character has a special move which you'll recognize from their original game. During the EX burst, you'll have to input several button cues but each is customized for each unique character.

For example, Tifa's EX Burst features the same slot reels for her Limit Break in Final Fantasy VII. For Tidus, you'd have to align the cursor in the target zone like his Overdrive attack in Final Fantasy X.





For Squall, you'll have to pull the trigger just like in Final Fantasy XIII. The more successful you are with the button cues, the more devastating the attack.





The EX system is actually more than a special move because, during battle, you'll have to fill up a meter called the EX gauge. Once...
