Square Enix is happy to announce that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered is coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Android, and iOS. A free demo version called Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Lite will also be launching alongside it. The launch date is August 27th. They also unveiled a “New Features” trailer showing off various improvements to the game:
A number of brand new features were announced in Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered. They include new high difficulty dungeons, like the Mine of Cathuriges, that you can take on after you’ve cleared the main story. Other improvements to the game include quick chat, and a new Timer mechanic to help players synchronize their magic attacks online. There is also a new “Mimic” feature that lets you take on the form of various characters you have met in your travels. There are new stronger weapons, and material capacity limits have been increased as well. The game also has cross-play support, so you can join players who own the game on different platforms. Finally, the soundtrack includes more than 50 tracks that are newly-composed by the original game’s composer, Kumi Tanioka.
Online multiplayer lets you and your friends take on up to 13 dungeons. A player owning the full game can have someone with the demo join them online. However, only players who have the full game can host online game sessions for friends to join. They say this can be done using just one copy of the game, since only the host needs the full game to create the online multiplayer session. It should also be noted that players with the demo can only play the first three dungeons. However, their save data will carry over to the full game, should they decide to buy it and continue their adventure.
