Something retro this way comes for Final Fantasy

Teaser site tantalizes with Active Time Battle hints

I’m not normally one for doing announcements of announcements these days, but sometimes they prove too tantalizing to pass up and/or Dale North says it has to be done. 

Here’s a classy one from Square Enix, featuring a teaser image of a classic Active Time Battle scene and promise of upcoming news. Interestingly, the enemy sprites seem to be from Final Fantasy IV, while the heroes are being identified by fans as coming from Final Fantasy V and VI.

The date for this reveal is set to be January 17. Are we looking at just another bunch of mobile ports, or something more unique? Who knows, or dares to dream?
