Square’s confirmed that pint-sized RPG outing Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection will make the jump to western territories for PSP later this year.
News comes following a listing for the game was spotted on retail giant Amazon’s website. No word on an exact release date as of yet, but it’ll launch at some point this spring.
For those out of the loop, the FFIV Complete Collection chucks in an enhanced version of the original 1991 SNES classic along with its direct follow-up, The After Years, previously released on mobile and WiiWare. Unlike the DS remake, however, the PSP version of FFIV won't feature 3D visuals.
The game's out in Japan on March 24.

PSP is going to be dead after the release of NGP....so why not port it into the NGP? :P

or just release it as a digital download, fairly certain that the NGP can play digital PSP games.
Also, completely ignoring the current PSP owners is a reckless idea. Many won't want to go and buy a NGP right away, but already own a PSP.
Porting the game to NGP only would not only cost more money than just localizing for a NA release, but yeild less revnue due to a significantly smaller install base.

It was on DLC on that other garbage console the Wii. But it seems it's just better to wait on this version. I'll be picking it up.

Plus that and the graphics are not a huge selling point for this game. I see no advantage to putting this on the NGP later. If you are worried about not be able to play it then just download it from the store if it is (hopefully) available as PSP downloaded games ARE playable on the NGP.
