It was last year that we learned of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered coming to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Today after showing some footage and commentary it was announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered will also be coming to iOS and Android. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered will come out this winter on all of the above-listed platforms.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was a Final Fantasy game that was originally released for the Nintendo Gamecube. Interestingly, and somewhat frustratingly, it was a game that could support up to 4 players but each player required their own Gameboy Advance and Gamecube link cable to play. With the remaster and not only the inclusion of wireless play but also online many gamers will be able to try out Crystal Chronicles in a way that they’ve never been able to play before.
In Crystal Chronicles a deadly miasma has taken over the world, the only thing keeping this ever-persistent threat at bay is the crystals that the towns are all built around. By using the Crystal Chalice caravans of adventurers are able to leave the city and stay protected while gathering drops of water to fill their chalice and power their crystal back home. While adventuring you’ll see a wide variety of locations from coastlines to towns whose adventurers failed that then perished in the miasma. Each year adventuring the world will change and you’ll have to forge new paths as you travel to make sure you’re always able to return and keep your village safe. Your caravan is made up of your own character build from one of the four races that inhabit the world, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
