Square Enix has moved from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition now called a new release date for Japan at least. The remaster is due to appear there for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch as well as iOS and Android devices on August 27th. The console versions will also appear physically. For the West, summer is still the target period.
In addition, an “imitation feature” was unveiled, which makes it possible to equip the character in battle with the appearance and voice of supporting characters that one encounters in the game. For this you have to collect certain items. So you can put together a caravan in online multiplayer mode that would not be possible in the main game.
The Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition follows a young group known as the Crystal Caravan on their epic quest for myrrh, a valuable and rare liquid they need to cleanse and maintain the crystal that keeps their world from fatal Protects gas miasm.
Team up with distant friends to kill terrifying enemies! Recruit comrades for your crystal caravan in online multiplayer mode for up to four players.
Adventure awaits your caravan in completely new realms full of wonders. There are even new areas in the dungeons, so many surprises await veterans of the original version.
The new online multiplayer mode for up to four players will work across all platforms thanks to cross-play. Thanks to Cross-Save you can also transfer the scores. After playing through, there are also new challenging dungeons and bosses. There are also new character skins, items and the theme songs and voices have been added.
Unfortunately, the release of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is only planned digitally in the West. In Japan, on the other hand, there is a commercial version for Nintendo Switch * and PlayStation 4.
