I need a shot at redemption
After working through delays, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is planning an August 27, 2020 launch on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android (though Square Enix warns that the timing of the cell variations is “subject to change”). Somewhat surprisingly, the action-RPG is getting a digital-only launch within the West. Japan, in the meantime, will have physical console editions.
“Far from a simple re-release,” the Crystal Chronicles remaster consists of on-line cross-platform multiplayer, new dungeons, new voice appearing, improved audio, HD visuals, and a cool Mimic perform.
As Square Enix’s Duncan Heaney explains on the PlayStation Blog, “by collecting stamps, visiting Moogle Houses, or completing difficult dungeons, you’ll get Memory Crystals which you can use to change your characters’ appearance to that of various characters you’ll meet on your adventure.”
When it involves multiplayer-centric RPGs, you’ll be able to by no means have sufficient customization decisions.
Whenever there’s an alternate character pores and skin, I’ll wish to use it. Even if it is worse than the default.
I haven’t got a historical past with Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles aside from the truth that it was “the one that got away.” At the time – we’re speaking the mid-2000s – I used to be a religious GameDice proprietor. I adored that system. I had the entire oddball Game Boy Advance link cable setup. I used to be into the concept of Final Fantasy returning to a Nintendo console. But I completely missed out – I by no means performed Crystal Chronicles.
I’m positive I’m removed from the one one who was inquisitive about this sport main as much as its authentic launch however by no means adopted by means of. I imply, it was an enormous ask again within the day. That’s what’s so nice about this remaster’s wide-open strategy to cross-platform multiplayer, although. It’s an opportunity to reconnect with a peculiar sport in a beloved collection that slipped by means of the cracks (with out going wild on eBay).
Last time we lined Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, a few of you puzzled if the four-person multiplayer was online-only. According to the PlayStation page, there’s additionally “couch co-op play.”
