Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Switch bound. (And PS4 too, but who cares about that).on September 10, 2018 by I love Japanese games
As though plucked from my very DREAMS, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Switch has been announced! It’s also coming to PS4 as well – but lets face it, who gives a damn about that. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Switch means being played as it was meant to be played – on four small screens.
Originally released on Gamecube back in 2003 (my goodness, that long ago?!) Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was one of the ‘Gameplay Enhanced’ line up – games which used the GBA and Link Cables for four player adventuring. Like Zelda: Four Swords, it was one of the best games that utilised this feature. Often underused (as it meant and gathering everyone together that had all the necessary bits) both Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles and Four Swords were an absolute blast to play.
Check out the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Switch trailer below.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles saw you and three friends heading off on adventures to replenish the power of a crystals protecting your village from a poisonous miasma. Using a smaller crystal, carried by one player, the other players must remain inside the protective bubble, clearing out maps and, ultimately, taking down the boss that caps each level.
What the game lacked in any worthwhile plot, it made up for with a hugely memorable soundtrack, some brilliant bosses, and plenty in the way of co-op challenge.
Finals Fantasy Crystal Chronicles will be getting the full remaster treatment, though as of yet, there’s no indication whether it’s a straight visual upgrade (the game was beautiful anyway) or whether there will be any additions in terms of content. Either way, we’ll happily take a straight high-res port regardless.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Switch comes out next year. Oh, and PS4 too.
