Square Enix has been, for the most part, quiet about Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers. Until recently (when a few short videos were made available), the status of the game was in question. However, rumor has it that the game will be at E3. Better yet, Crystal Bearers is said to be playable at the event. The director of the title will be taking interviews, so it’s possible that more information will be shared next week.

Is Nintendo really gearing up for a big E3? It seems that way, and is reinforced by some news coming out of Japan. According to Japanese blog Sinobi, Nintendo will be hosting a big press event right after E3. Sinobi is usually right on top of things which is why you can be pretty sure that this is not a rumor. What is speculation, however, is that the company may be highlighting its summer lineup. To hold an event right after E3 does seem a bit suspicious, though.
