Mini-update: Okay, here is the official description of the update from Nintendo…

“An update that provides a behind-the-scenes enhancement to the Nintendo Channel was made available.”

To be honest, I do not notice any significant changes other than the channel’s slightly modified presence on the Wii Menu. As of now, there is no scrolling text to show some of the updates to the channel. Nintendo works in mysterious ways though, so perhaps they’ve added something that I may have missed. Keep in mind that this update is a mandatory download if you wish to access the Nintendo Channel from here on out. Oh, and no – There are no Wii demos on the channel. Sorry folks!

Contrary to reports provided by EGM’s Rumor Mill section, Square Enix confirmed today that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers will be released. The company states that they “have every intention of releasing it.”

“While much of EGM’s ‘Rumor Mill’ contents end up being accurate, in this case the report is incorrect. We have never announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has been cancelled and have every intention of releasing it. There may be some concerns as a firm ship date has not been set but rest assured there will be an announcement once we finalize the date internally. Although there are many Square Enix related rumors out there that we do not comment on, due to the feedback from the readers, we felt it was necessary to provide a statement to alleviate the worries of those who are looking forward to the game. The fan base that the Final Fantasy series has is appreciated by everyone at Square Enix (not only the developers) so we hope this statement will prevent any further spreading of the rumor. We apologize for any unnecessary distress this rumor may have caused and hope the fans of the series can again look forward to the upcoming release of Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.” – Square Enix statement

– The game will feature two protagonists Ibuki and Yui.
– They live in a fortified city built on the back of a giant.
– The giant will wake up during an enemy attack, our heroes must fight and defend their city.
