Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition confirmed for August 27 in the west, new trailer
Last night, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is launching in Japan on August 27. Just as expected, fans in the west will be getting it around the same time – actually, on the same day. Square Enix has confirmed that we’ll be seeing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition in North America and Europe on August 27.
It currently appears that the game will have a digital-only release overseas. However, Japan will be receiving a physical version. Collectors can import a copy from Play-Asia here.
Here’s a rundown of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition from Square Enix:
What is Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles?
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a 1-4 player RPG that focuses on a young group known as the Crystal Caravans, as they embark on an epic journey to search for myrrh. This precious and rare liquid is desperately needed to cleanse and maintain a crystal that protects them, and their world, from a poisonous gas.
You – either on your own or with up to four friends – will embark on perilous quests, explore beautiful lands full of secrets and face the dangerous monsters that lurk within.
What’s been added to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition?
As mentioned, a host of enhancements and features have been added to this new game — so much so we should probably call it Remastered Addition. I mean, yes, that’s a terrible pun that barely makes sense, but the overall point stands.
Improved visuals and audio: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles’ always had a unique sense of style, and on Switch it’s never looked – or sounded – better. You’ll be able to explore this expansive world with updated HD visuals and even enhanced audio.
Character voiceovers: the inhabitants of the game have been brought to life with new voice acting.
Online multiplayer – with crossplay! Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is an amazing co-operative multiplayer experience, and Remastered Edition makes it easier than ever before to join people to play with. You’ll be able to travel with up to three other players (four players total) – and crossplay support means anyone who owns the game will be able to join!
New challenging dungeons: This updated version of the game also features new dungeons for you and your friends to battle through. We could say more, but we’d rather let you discover them for yourselves.
An entirely new ‘Mimic’ feature: 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. If you want to add a bit more pizazz to your party, now you can!
