Final Fantasy IV Missable Guide

Final Fantasy IV Missable Guide

Important: Before you begin!

In order for this guide to be available this fast I have used the wiki for all names, these will be updated as I play the game myself to take my screenshots and fine-tune the details and format to match my other Pixel Remaster guides.As a general rule just be careful if you are unsure about any area in the meantime and don’t be afraid to make use of multiple save slots, especially on on time only areas.

FFIV and Party Members

Party Members on this game will come and go as they please all the time, make sure to remove any equipment you don’t want to risk losing before they leave.Each location on this guide will have a Party label, containing which party members you will have by the end of said location, along with a description on when they join you.
