Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Has A Release Date After Getting Delayed

The Remastered Edition of action-RPG will hit mobile devices and consoles later this August.


Following a delay in December 2019 that caused the game to miss its January 23 release date, Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will officially arrive on August 27 for Android and iOS devices, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4.

The news comes via the PlayStation Blog, where the studio's web content editor, Duncan Heaney, discussed some of the new features that have been added to this remastered Crystal Chronicles. These additions include cross-play with online support, improved audio and visual enhancements, new character voiceovers and dungeons, and more, some of which Square is keeping close to its chest.

In addition to announcing the new release date, Square Enix also shared a brief overview trailer showing off Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition's modifications.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition was originally unveiled in September 2018 with Square giving the action-RPG a January 23 release date. The studio decided to push the game back in December 2019 to Summer 2020 so that there was extra time during development for the team to "make final adjustments to the game to make this the best experience possible."

Crystal Chronicles originally launched on GameCube in February 2004. At that time, to play the game cooperatively, you needed to connect Game Boy Advances to the system via a link capable. Thanks to the upcoming remaster, anyone who purchases Crystal Chronicles on mobile devices, Nintendo Switch, or PlayStation 4 can play together.
