Big changes included!

The beloved classic FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES returns in beautiful HD for Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android devices on January 23, 2020.

Long ago, a giant meteorite fell on the land, and deadly miasma blanketed the world. Crystals keep the miasma in check, but the crystals' power is not eternal. Young adventurers embark on a journey once a year seeking "drops of myrrh" to purify the crystals. These are the chronicles of brave young adventurers who journey to protect their home. These are the "CRYSTAL CHRONICLES."

Along with the new trailers and release date, Square-Enix has shared a host of new details on Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition. First up, we know that Japan will see a retail version and eShop version. It seems both the retail and eShop versions will be priced at 4,800 yen.

Following that, Square-Enix revealed the one-two punch of cross-play and cross-progression across platforms. Yes, it seesms that Switch players will be able to play with PS4 and mobile players. You can also play your saved game on one platform, and pick it back up on another.

July 2019? Did I sleep in class or something?

I put a ridiculous amount of time into a game I never got around to beating... maybe I'll give this another shot.

Not a fan of the re-recorded theme, I think the original is far superior:


*waves cane* Back in my day, we had to all play in the same room and everyone had to have their own Game Boy Advance and link cable!

New options to hold the chalice ?
Especially in two players mode.

New content was exactly what I was hoping for. Though I'm getting the impression couch co-op is out, which would be a huge drawback in my opinion.

Oh that would be a real bummer. I mean it was the focus of the original game.
I don't really care about voice-overs for example, but as I've said I was hoping for new options for the chalice in two player modes. I mean they could just have a moggle hold it for you when you're just two players because the original game was pretty much unplayable or at least really cumbersome when played with a single friend because of that.

Now on the other hand, if the couch co-op is out, then that would explain the lack of chalice holding options. They're counting on always having four players online, or at least more easily.
