DS spin-off of Final Fantasy confirmed for US release; Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales ships to stores on April 3.
Regardless of what the name may say, there appears to be no end to the Final Fantasy franchise. The popular series continues to turn out the spin-offs with Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales for the DS. Previously released in Japan under the name Chocobo to Mahou no Ehon, Chocobo Tales will ship to US stores on April 3, Square Enix announced today.
Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales is a collection of minigames, card battles, and some role playing. These elements are bound together by a storyline that involves characters from the series rescuing friends from storybooks that mimic Aesop's Fables.
Chocobo Tales can be played with either standard or stylus-driven touch-screen controls and will occasionally make use of the DS's other features, like the built-in microphone.
i like chocobo.. not thaat much, but i like it wonder if it would be as good as final fantasy tactics for ds
Though I seriously doubt I'd buy this game. From what I have seen of it seems will not interest me to much.
I like chocobos so I will buy the game for that reason alone. Matrixman2k is also correct that they need a sequel to Chrono Cross and I would love one to Vagrant Story as well. Wark Wark Kweh Wark Kweh (buy this game in chocobo)
To be honest, i'm not a fan of FF spin-offs. X-2 was decent, but not up to the series quality. Didn't bother with the movies or any other spin-offs (apart from Tactics, which was great). I just hope FFVII: Crisis Core is a good game. It would be nice to see a series of original FF games for the PSP.
First of i like my ff but this is getting ridiculous. Why cant they just spend some resources and make a sequel to chrono cross. As for ff just give the public what they demand and that is - for those of us not in touch - a remake of ff 7 + 8 + 9 (all ps1 titles) for the ps3....simple and a source of new revenue. Take a look at wii, it's very popular with all the retro...wait a minute. Why can't they release all the ps1 titles for the wii?! But then the discs man, 3 and 4 cd games. Where would they fit all that info. unless they were to release it on a full size dvd disc.........downloading them via wii channel is probably out of the question.
majestikk When are they goint to bring a NEW Final Fantasy Tactics game to the DS? The DS seems to be the perfect fit for a New FF Tactics game. I'm not feeling this Chocobo bird crap. There is a sequel to FF Tactics Advance in development right now. [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_Tactics_A2_F%C5%ABketsu_no_Grimoire[/url]
hmm....i guess thats cool....i would like to see final fantasy tactics on the ds...now that would be a game worth buying

You may say that, but I find it the other way around. KH is just repeated button-mashing, whereas FFT requires thought and effort put into planning your moves.
Wow there's a lot of hate going around with this game... Well I think it looks interesting and I might check it out.
I've been watching the videos, and it ain't grabbing me by the kuponuts. But I also had trouble sticking with FFTactics Advance. Cutscenes are fine, but I really need gameplay that moves along at a pace a notch above torpor. Kingdom Hearts isn't dull during any moment that you're supposed to be holding the controller.
Oh, yippee...another Final Fantasy franchise milk jug. What else is new? Seriously, now. The game looks somewhat interesting, but based on my sheer disgust that Square (not Enix) is yet again...pumping out another game based on their done to DEATH gravy train... I won't be getting it.
I just got a DS on Friday, and I highly recommend that everyone buy one. It may quite possibly be the best handheld ever made.
You have wireless card battles in the game. Have to unlock I think from what the English previews of it said. It's sold extremly well in Japan so far.
Heh, I actually got this game while I was in Japan, about when it came out I think. It's actually a lot of fun, minigames are creative uses of the touch-screen, and while the card-battle is a lot of luck, it's still very well made, though not implemented all that well (four or five battles total in the story mode). I'm glad they're bringing it to the US, and I think I'm glad I already have it in Japanese, becuase some of the new English text is beyond cheesy. And also, for the sake of everyone who plays it: they damn well better fix the freaking high scores for the side-minigames, because most of them are beyond impossible in the version I have.
Good idea regarding the name change. I hate the DS microphone though. From what I can remember, Nintendogs was the only game that made any good use of it.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
