In a press release put out today by Square Enix they’ve announced a release date for the upcoming remaster of the Final Fantasy spin-off title, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was originally released form the Nintendo GameCube in 2003 and was an action RPG with a focus on multiplayer. It’s notable for making use of the Game Boy Advance through the link cable that allowed it to link with the GameCube. This cable was required for multiplayer, although single player could be played without it.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered seeks to update the game with a number of modern changes. Of course the visual will be receiving an overhaul to more closely meet the standards of modern hardware, along with a remastered soundtrack, but those of course will not be the only changes. The multiplayer can now be enjoyed online and without the need for a any additional hardware. Also the game will allow for cross-platform play across all the various versions. Other changes include new dungeons and bosses, brand new voiceovers for the heroes, and items that can change your appearance. Be sure to checkout the trailer below:
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered will be launching January 23rd, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, as well as iOS and Android mobile devices. There is no mention of a PC port at this time but it’s pretty common for Square’s mobile titles to find their way on PC, for now though that is simply speculation.
