Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition received a new 1.0.2 update on Switch today. Among what’s new is the ability to skip boss appearance sequences and Myrrh drop acquisition events while playing multiplayer.

Below are the full patch notes:

For the release of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, Square Enix revisited the original game’s soundtrack. Not only were many pieces of music revamped, but a couple of new tracks were added to the experience as well. That all comes courtesy of original composers Kumi Tanioka and Hidenori Iwasaki as well as English vocalist and game narrator Donna Burke.

Prior to the launch of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, Nintendo Everything was given the opportunity to pass along a few questions to Tanioka, Iwasaki, and Burke. They touched on their experience with the original game as well as their contributions to the new version.

You can read our full discussion with Tanioka, Iwasaki, and Burke below.

Square Enix has shared a message from Araki Ryoma, the director of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition.

The game experienced significant online play issues at launch, which apparently happened due to servers exceeding their capacity. Maintenance on August 29 “has led to comparatively stable running thereafter.”

Ryoma has also shared details on update plans. A couple of issues will be addressed soon and the host for online sessions will be able to skip boss introduction cut scenes and myrrh drop scenes.

Here’s the full message from Ryoma:

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast we’re catching up on several recent releases. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a mixed bag, Giraffe and Annika a charming little adventure, Sentinels of Freedom has highs and lows, and Spiritfarer is a character-driven delight. Then… the Nintendo Direct Mini. Neither Oni Dino nor Galen really cared about the games in the showcase, but that’s totally fine. Being disappointed is fine—we move on and play all the games that are already out or releasing soon. Those who are genuinely upset? That’s behavior that players should identify within themselves and reevaluate how they interact with entertainment media.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will feature 13 newly-added post-game dungeons, Square Enix has announced.

These extra areas, which are more difficult than normal, offer new equipment item recipes that were not included in the original game. Players will be able to obtain new accessories, weapons, and armor. Also new is the ability to use “Crystal Memories” in these dungeons, which allow players to use moves previously unique to bosses.
