Square Enix confirm the release of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition has been pushed back to summer 2020.

In a tweet from the official Final Fantasy account, Square Enix says the decision to delay the game has been made to allow the development team time to make ‘final adjustments.’

As previously reported, the remaster will include updated graphics, new battle voice-overs, bosses, dungeons, and artifacts. The game was originally planned for release on January 23, 2020.


Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will also support cross-platform play across PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS.

Originally released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2003, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is one of the forgotten gems of the series, mostly due the tangle of cables and GBA consoles required to play it properly.

We’re looking forward to revisiting the game, albeit a little later than we hoped. In the meantime, check out some screenshots from the game’s outing at the Tokyo Game Show.
