Ever since Final Fantasy IV was announced to be heading to the PlayStation Portable, we've been hearing a lot of mention about a scenario that connects the original game to The After Years sequel. Square Enix has now started calling this scenario Interlude, and finally provided a few details. In Interlude, a few years after the main game you control Cecil, of course, and it will start off at a ceremony celebrating the recovery of Damcyan Castle. You'll encounter many of your allies at the ceremony.
Alongside the updated graphics and the gallery mode, Takashi Tokita, who oversaw Interlude, also made mention of the option for players to choose between the game's original music, and arranged tracks. (Sound familiar? This is staring to become a fad - Persona 2: Innocent Sin for PSP has a similar option.)
Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection will be released on March 24th in Japan and on April 19th in North America.
