It’s not just a port of the 2008 Nintendo DS remake, as the Steam release features 1080p visuals, surround sound, voiced cut-scenes, and full Xbox controller support. Final Fantasy IV‘s Steam listing also states the game contains an “All-new system for charting dungeons and uncovering the secrets within“, whatever that means.
If you’ve been avoiding the series as of late for whatever reason, you may remember Final Fantasy IV here in the States as Final Fantasy II on the SNES. It was eventually released as Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection on PSP in 2011, which included the mobile sequel Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. I’m not 100% sure if the DS remake or its Steam port include the content found in The After Years, but it does include new story elements not found in the original, such as more insight in to the childhoods of Cecil, Kain, and Rosa.
