Square Enix is bringing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
Square Enix has published a new trailer announcing PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.
Originally released as a Nintendo GameCube exclusive in 2003, the game was one of a select number of titles to indulge in Nintendo’s short-lived push for connectivity between the GameCube and GameBoy Advance consoles.
Despite the hurdles involved in getting a four player multiplayer game up and running – multiple link cables, multiple GBAs, and friends who cared – it was a successful venture for Square Enix.
Thankfully, the Remastered Edition will support online multiplayer, and as you can see from the new trailer, the game has also received a bit of a visual makeover.
The Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series saw sequels on the DS and Wii, as well as two rather lovely games that were exclusive to the WiiWare digital service: My Life as a King, and My Life as a Dark Lord. How we’d love to see those make a reappearance.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles – Remastered Edition will be released in Japan in 2019. At the time of writing there is no word of a Western release.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
