Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition

Square Enix has announced that its update including a lot of fixes for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is coming on December 17. This update will be version 1.0.3 on the Switch and 1.0.2 on the Switch Lite.

The update will include server maintence, as well as various bug fixes and improvements (specifically to multiplayer). This update is scheduled to go live any time from 11:00 – 18:00 on December 17, 2020 in Japan (which would be 6:00pm – 1:00am PT) and more details about it can be found in our previous coverage here.


Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered is now available for purchase on the Switch eShop, and Square Enix celebrates the occasion with the all-new special artwork featured above. At $29.99 on the eShop and taking up 4.1GB of space, this Action-RPG is sure to capitalize on the portability of the Switch. While multiplayer is an online-only affair, the addition of cross-play capability will allow players to enjoy the adventure with their friends regardless of platform, and in thirteen additional dungeons to boot. It certainly is a good time to delve back into the world of crystals and miasma.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, it’s Super Mario’s uneventful 35th birthday. But Paper Mario is out, and Oni Dino has first impressions. Galen loves his shlooters, so there’s a brief talk about that and the inability to “preserve” the experience. In the news, we’ve got lots of small topics. The big one worth celebrating is Swery’s (Deadly Premonition 2) apology and excellent response to dead-naming a transgender character in his game. Oni Dino applauds his caring response. Then, there’s not one, but two video games being adapted into television series, Atelier Ryza 2 got outed by the Australian ratings board, and a brief discussion on why the lack of local co-op in Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered is not a deal-breaker. Hop on the caravan, and check out links and timestamps below.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered won’t support local multiplayer, according to Square Enix. However, as previously announced, online multiplayer is in with full cross-play.

Square Enix cited “development reasons” in its decision to focus on online play over local multiplayer. The team ultimately hopes to reach a wider array of players.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered will finally launch for Switch and other platforms on August 28 following a number of delays.
