** Repairing Calca and Brina. You need to get two rare items dropped by a certain enemy that can only be encountered in one room in the area during the waxing moon phase (easy to recognize when you enter it; there are lots of rocks and no treasure chests, jars, etc.) plus one item in a jar in the room it's connected to. There's a save point in the previous room so a tent can be used if it's the wrong moon phase, but still. Heck, you aren't even told you ''can'' repair the dolls. It is worth noting that Calcabrina's theme music plays during the battle with said enemy.

Your only hint to any of this is worth noting that when the enemy appears, Calcabrina's theme music plays during plays. You're otherwise not told where or how the battle with said enemy.enemy appears.

The game was originally released for cell phones in Japan, and was released on UsefulNotes/WiiWare June 1, 2009 in the US. The entire game will cost 3700 Wii points total for 9 story segments (13 chapters in all). Following the success of the DS prequel in iOS / Android form, TAY is getting the same treatment, as in, it looks exactly as you'd expect the game to look as it if was on the DS. This version of the game came out in November 2013.

** Inverted with the ''Complete Collection'': For less than the price of ''After Years'' on WiiWare you get that (with all chapters), the original FF IV, and the "Interlude" chapter, all with upgraded aesthetics, making it essentially a three-for. Nice to see SE giving fans a collection worth their money.

* OneGameForThePriceOfTwo: The game is split into 9 downloadable segments (13 in the Japanese version), each of which must be purchased separately. To play the game in its entirety, a gamer must shell out 3700 Wii Points, much more than other WiiWare titles (unless you count other episodic games. ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', for instance, is 5000 Wii Points, all told), though 37 dollars is still considerably less than most games you'd buy in the store.)

* {{Retraux}}: Except in the PSP version, which uses that version of the game's high-resolution sprites throughout, the flashbacks (including a few playable flashbacks) use sprites from the original just for the added touch. The game itself also seems to fit this when on WiiWare, but less so when you consider that it was actually created for cell phones. Seemingly to make up for the lack of graphical change, PSP game does, however, allow players to use the original SNES versions of music originating in the game's predecessor.

** Kain attacks Fabul and afterwards he returns to Baron before flying to Damcyan. During this you switch control to Ceodore and the Hooded Man who climb the Mist Cliff, and when they reach the other side there's a scene of Kain heading to Damcyan. Yang sets sail for Baron after the siege and sees Edward heading for Baron as well. When Kain arrives at Damcyan, Edward is there. This means in the time it took Ceodore and the Hooded Man to scale the Mist Cliff and Kain to fly from Fabul to Baron and then head to Damcyan, Edward has sailed to Baron, conducted his business with Cecil, sailed back to Damcyan and evacuated the castle in preparation for the arrival of the Red Wings. Apparently sailing ships can outrun airships several times over.
*** And when Ursula joins Yang in his tale, she mentions the meteor impact she was going to see ([[spoiler:which was how the Mysterious Girl/Maenads arrived on Earth]]) occurred several days ago. This shatters the timeline all over again, since aside from a stop in Kaipo after the above described events, Ceodore and Kain's Tale, which depicts the Mysterious Girl's arrival, are entirely continuous.
** The first part of final tale involves the player flying around the world finding party members and freeing Eidolons from the Mysterious Girl. During this time Ceodore, Rosa, Cid, Edward and [[spoiler:Kain]] are confronting [[spoiler:Cecil]] in Baron. The party finishes their world tour, returns to Baron and bursts into the throne room just as [[spoiler:Cecil]] collapses in defeat. Granted there ''was'' a lot of talking going on when they confronted him, but still.
** The Lunar Whale takes off at the start of Porom's Tale, and later in Porom's Tale when she's climbing Mt. Ordeals she senses Palom is in danger, which we see in his tale when the Mysterious Girl attacks him in the Lodestone Cavern. In Rydia's Tale she and Luca see Palom flying to the cave on their way to Agart, and at the end of the Rydia's Tale the Man in Black arrives in the Lunar Whale. Apparently the Lunarians have mastered faster-than-light travel because there's no way otherwise the airship could find the Red Moon adrift in space and return to Earth in that timeframe.

continuous and implied to occur within a day or two, and Ceodore's Tale depicts the meteor impact happening.

realistically Rydia's party took at least a few hours flying around the world while the events in Baron were taking place.

* LostForever: The Eblan Four and Luca's dolls stay on as permanent party members in the final chapters, but only if you complete Edge's Tale with the Four alive and repair the dolls in Rydia's Tale. Items not acquired in the individual Tales are not carried over if you import the save data into the final chapter without having them. You ''could'' play the tale again and get them, but then you have to restart the final chapter so you can re-import your data. This is particularly irritating if you decide to skip the Challenge Dungeons, which host many rare and useful items including Adamantite, which you can trade for the game's strongest equipment.
