Does 1&2 have retina support? Doesn't look like they do from the reviews I've read

I didn't know FF IV was coming either.

So why are they redoing ff2 again if its already ported to ios. Am i lost here? I know ff4 complete collection was for psp. And it looks better then the current ff2 for iphone.but it already looks nice, i must be thinking of another ff game? Can someone enlighten me? Doesnt make sence for square to re release a release already released lol.

You're actually slightly mistaken. Final Fantasy IV was rebranded in the US as Final Fantasy II on the SNES because the real FFII and III weren't localized at the time. The FFII on the App Store is the real FFII. FFIV is a completely different game. It's also my second favorite classic FF (pre 32-bit era) after VI.

I did a youtube search and a wiki search and they all say ff 4 was rebranded as ff2 in the us

So the ff 2 in the app store is actually ff4 in the japanese translation.

So im still confused. I think its a ff2 remake. Im pretty sure. If ff4 is a complety different game then which one is it. Cause wiki says ff4 is the one with cecil and the dragoon guy. Thats ff2. I love that one.

The FFII on the App Store is a remake of the original FFII, which was on NES. You're right about FFIV being the one with Cecile and Kain. On SNES it got rebranded in the US as FFII, but later updated versions of it on the GBA, Playstation, PSP, and DS correctly identified it as FFIV.

Yup, they're likely porting the DS version of FFIV over to iOS, just like they did with FFIII.

Maybe... In a year or two. I haven't seen or heard anything on ff4 being ported to iOS.

If you take a look at the description on FFI and FFII and FFIII , they mention the sale are on because FFIV is coming out soon.
