Square Enix announced that the classic Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles that first debuted on Nintendo Gamecube will be getting a remastered edition for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2019.
When Crystal Chronicles was released on Nintendo Gamecube several years ago, it was not received well by fans due to its different play-style. Instead of the traditional turn-based JRPG that fans are accustomed to with past Final Fantasy games, Crystal Chronicles has a more RTS-style combat system.
Since many may have probably missed the outing of Crystal Chronicles back then, now is the perfect time to play it on the Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 4 with better visuals. No information was revealed by Square Enix about any extra features the game will have but a short trailer was released.
Here’s a brief overview of the game via the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Wiki:
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a spin-off/companion game outside the main Final Fantasy series. Released in 2003 for the Nintendo GameCube, it marked the first return of Final Fantasy to a Nintendo console since Final Fantasy VI.
This Final Fantasy game features many new gameplay elements previously unseen in Final Fantasy, like real time fighting, as well as being the first RPG to incorporate GameCube-Game Boy Advance compatibility. The music was scored by Kumi Tanioka.
A remastered edition will release on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will be available sometime in 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Currently, there’s no exact date but we are expecting Square Enix to release more details about the game in the upcoming Tokyo Game Show sometime this year. As soon as we hear something, we will let you know right away.
As we are all patiently waiting for more news about the game and its definite release date, check out the teaser trailer that Square Enix released via Twitter.
