Crystal Bearers and the Dueling Preorder Bonuses

Preorder swag war never changes. With Gamestop announcing that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers will be $5 off in their stores, Amazon has countered with a similar price and a packed-in 2010 calendar. Best Buy, meanwhile, is charging the full $49.99 US, but includes a soundtrack sampler with the purchase.

Crystal Bearers is due for a late November launch in Japan, and will debut after Christmas in the US.

Crystal Bearers Just Might Make It to Your Home This Holiday Season

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has seen plenty of delays and ambiguous release dates, but it looks like it’s safe to put it on your wish list this year. According to Siliconera, this elusive Wii title will be released in Japan on November 26 with a North American release to follow sometime this holiday season.

FFCC: The Crystal Bearers Details Almost Revealed

Square-Enix recently confirmed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers is due for a North American launch this year. When, exactly, is still up in the air, although a holiday release seems likely.

As for the plot, details have begun to emerge about the game world, specifically in a cover feature for this month’s Nintendo Power. The article revealed that one race, the Lilties, has achieved technological superiority and currently reigns supreme over the other races. Science is king and magic, wielded by crystal bearers – such as the one you play – is viewed with suspicion and disdain. Other details are mentioned, such as a dramatic fight scene that ends with the main character, Layle, using his power to keep a crippled airship aloft. Even money says he’ll still have to hunt for a key to a locked door at some point.

A portion of the article can be read here.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers Impression

Things started off promising enough. Fights with dragon-like beings are rarely dull. I think this particular part of the demo would’ve come off a lot better had it not been passed off as a tutorial/minigame though, or really the only combat I saw in the 20-30 minutes that I was able to play before our next appointment.
