When FFIV was released many people hoped it would have been a PSP port because that edition included both aspects but I think After Years is more of a sequel.

Here is a write-up from wikipedia.

Originally released in Japan as a mobile game in 2008, an enhanced WiiWare port of the title was released in North America, Europe and Japan in 2009.[1][2][3] In 2011, the game was bundled with Final Fantasy IV as the PlayStation Portable compilation Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection, which also included a new game; Final Fantasy IV: Interlude, which served as a bridge between the original game and The After Years

...Set 17 years after Final Fantasy IV, The After Years follows the original cast and their descendants in episodic tales as a new villain appears, setting into action a mysterious chain of events that threatens the fate of the Blue Planet. Largely utilizing assets, locations, and mechanics from its predecessor, the title nevertheless incorporates higher quality character graphics and several new gameplay systems.

...The battle system uses a new feature called the "Age of the Moon", reflecting the game's lunar phases changing with each rest at an inn, or over a set period of in-game time. The altering phases change physical and magical attack powers for both player characters and enemies. Certain rare monsters also only appear during certain lunar phases. The game also introduces a new type of combination attack known as a "Band" ability... these allow two or more characters to coordinate separate commands into a single new attack at the cost of MP from all involved. Band abilities are extremely powerful, and there are over 70 different combinations in all.

...A 3D remake in the same vein as the 3D remake of Final Fantasy IV was announced for iOS and android.

It seems to be chibi-style like FFIV on the DS/iOS.

^ Wow that is incredibly awesome. That means they basically remade it like a new game (using some existing FF4 assets). How long does After Years take to beat? Is it as long as the original game itself?

I've been hoping for this since IV came out. Glad they kept the graphics consistent.
