Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remaster For Nintendo Switch, PS4 Announced
This time, you won't need multiple Game Boy Advances.
Square Enix has announced it is remastering Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, and it will launch in 2019. A short trailer for the game made its debut at the PlayStation Lineup Tour, a pre-Tokyo Game Show event, and teases the return of the multiplayer RPG.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was originally release for Nintendo GameCube in 2004. The game tasks players with battling enemies and solving puzzles so that they can safely gather Myrrh, an energy source that sustains the crystals needed to protect the world from Miasma. In the original release, multiplayer was enabled by connecting Game Boy Advances using a link cable, however, the remaster will have internet connectivity.
In GameSpot's Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles review, Brad Shoemaker awarded it an 8/10, saying that it is "a fun action RPG with its own style and a fair amount of replay value."

He continued: "It doesn't exactly fit into the Final Fantasy series proper, aside from the involvement of crystals and a few familiar monsters and magic spells, but it's good enough to stand on its own without any famous franchise names attached to it. Crystal Chronicles plays specifically to those who will appreciate it, and it serves as a fitting return for Square to the Nintendo partnership that first brought the company to fame so long ago."
The PlayStation Lineup Tour has delivered a few other surprises too, including a new Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer that shows the Big Hero 6 world and characters. In it, Sora, Donald, and Goofy meet with Baymax and Hiro to defend San Fransokyo from the Heartless.
In addition to that, a new trailer for From Software's Sekiro: Shadow's Die Twice was also released. It shows off some of the things that differentiate it from the studio's other big games, Dark Souls and Bloodborne--most notably the traversal. Watch the new Sekiro TGS 2018 trailer here.
