Square Enix announced a remastered version of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game originally released in 2004 for the Nintendo GameCube.
The teaser trailer below shows implementations of the online multiplayer with players joining into games. Confirmation for online play will solve an issue with the original game which required each player to use a Gameboy Advance and link cable to play co-op. The multiplayer feature was rarely used because of complications requiring each player to have their own portable system.
After Final Fantasy VI for the Super Nintendo, Square started to make Final Fantasy titles for Sony’s PlayStation which allowed more data to be stored on discs, something Nintendo 64 cartridges was not able to do. It was only until the GameCube when a Final Fantasy title would be released for a Nintendo home console. Crystal Chronicles would go on to sell over one million copies worldwide with mostly positive reviews from critics. The Crystal Chronicles series had multiple games released afterward with three being on Nintendo handheld devices and one on the Wii home console.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
My friend purchased the game for his GameCube shortly after its release and played it non-stop for a month, which allowed me to experience it from a viewers perspective. I’ll be keeping the Remastered Edition on my radar so I can get a chance to experience it myself.
