August 27, mark your calendars.
The 2003 classic Final Fantasy title, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered, is finally coming to the current generation of gaming platforms. Published by Square Enix, the studio promised to deliver a completely revamped and improved experience, starting from visual improvements throughout the game to new features.
The development team made sure to give the original Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles a visual and audio upgrade, giving it an HD makeover and enhanced music and sound effects. In addition to that, the studio invested in giving the title's experience a new dimension, hiring voice actors to bring life to the characters. This will definitely add a new element of connection between the players and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles' known cast. The remastered version will feature new dungeons for players to go through, and there might be a few surprises hidden along the way according to Square Enix's Web Content Editor Duncan Heaney announcement.
One of the most prominent additions is online multiplayer crossplay, allowing anyone who owns Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered across the confirmed platforms to join up to four friends and play together seamlessly. This is a welcome change to fans of the original that required each player to have their own Gameboy Advance and GBA Link Cable to play. The brand new Mimic system will give players the chance to exchange their earned Memory Crystals to change their characters’ appearance to that of various characters from the game's universe. Crystals can be earned through collecting stamps, visiting Moogle Houses, or simply beating the dungeons Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered has to offer.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered releases on August 27th worldwide for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. Make sure to check out the release date announcement trailer below for a look at the game's classic gameplay but with better aesthetics and new features.
