A new version of SNES RPG classic Final Fantasy IV is heading to the PSP, incorporating recent WiiWare expansion The After Years as well as the 1991 original.

Andriasang reports that Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection will boast revamped visuals and a brand new chapter linking the original RPG with its latter-day spin-off.

There are no further details right now, other than a mooted Spring 2011 release date in Japan, but we're onto Square Enix for more information.

Even the most casual Final Fantasy fan should be fairly well-versed in Final Fantasy IV's charms, but The After Years is something of a curio. It started out life as a Japan-only mobile game before coming to Western shores in July 2009 on WiiWare.

It's set 17 years after the events of Final Fantasy IV and follows the adventures of Ceodore, the son of the original game's hero Cecil.

Its retro RPG stylings won it a 7/10 from Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead.
