Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time – Staff Review

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was an interesting experiment back in the days of the GameCube, a system known for its multiplayer prowess. Though the game could be played solo, it was clearly intended to be played with friends, but it came with one tiny hitch. In an effort to promote the GBA and the ill-fated GBA link cable, multiplay required separate GBAs with cables for each player. When the series made the move to the DS, Ring of Fates improved the situation tremendously by providing a game that could be enjoyed solo or with friends, but the multiplayer required a local connection. The third attempt, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time, is a valiant attempt to get it right, but in the end, it still falls short.

Square Enix had a bevy of news updates today. For starters, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, the previously cellphone-only sequel to Final Fantasy IV, is finally confirmed after its appearance on the ESRB rating widget hinted at its release. The game will be released on WiiWare, but as of yet, no pricing or release date information has been announced. For more information, you can check out the game’s official website.

In other WiiWare news, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord was announced. It will be a sequel to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King, which launched simultaneously with the WiiWare service. It is slated for 2009. The game puts you in the role of the Darklord’s daughter as she attempts to thwart heroes with well-placed traps.

Square Enix also promised that the classic Final Fantasy I will be hitting the Virtual Console in May for Japan and sometime this year for North America.

Square Enix Ships Triple Threat

It’s Tuesday, so it’s time for this week’s shipment of new reasons to be poor. This week, all the action is from Square Enix. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time for Wii and DS.

Square Enix Japan Taunts Rest of World With DSi Bundles

Japan’s an expensive place to live, and it can get kind of crowded. So to make up for these things, companies like Square Enix placate the populace with sweet DSi bundles that make pretty much everyone else in the world jealous. Case in point, there are two new bundles for the DSi, a system that we don’t even get until at least the middle of next year over here. The first is a bundle for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and so far, Square Enix hasn’t said what sort of special limited edition DSi it will come with. Final Fantasy Chrystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time will also be getting a pretty limited run. It’ll come with the game, a white DS embossed with a cat, all for a suggested 23,940 yen, which is exactly $252 right now.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Goes Both Ways

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time has been announced in the latest issue of Shonen Jump. In an interesting twist, the game is coming out for the DS and the Wii. Gameplay will vary depending on whether one is using the Wiimote or the stylus, but it will be possible to play online with those using either version, this thanks to Square Enix’s cross-platform engine, the Pollux Engine. It also looks like players will be able to transfer and use their Miis on the DS version. The game will be an action RPG, and though there’s little information so far, we do know that the plot revolves around Charlotta and (naturally) a crystal.
