Amazon adds placeholder listing for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition

Package deal

Many fans have been saying that they'd like to have a retail version of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition on Switch. While Square-Enix is yet to confirm anything, it seems that Amazon might have spilled the beans. The online retailer just added a listing for the title, and they'd have no reason to do so if it were digital-only.

Square-Enix character designer reveals a cut Chocobo from Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy!, and gives hope for new Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles titles

FFCCII, please!

Square-Enix character designer Toshiyuki Itahana has worked on both Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! and Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. In an interview with Twinfinite, we find out about the Chocobo design seen above, which didn't actually make the cut for the game.

I ended up designing a “summoner”, but the planner mentioned it would be difficult to incorporate into the system, so the design didn’t make it into the game. The design is pretty cute though, so I would love to see it make an appearance next time.

Following that, Itahana is asked about the potential for new entries in the Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series. The response is at least somewhat encouraging.

In general, for both remakes, we want to ensure that the games are properly developed, recreating the fun of the original game, while adding new elements. After everyone gets a chance to hopefully reaffirm the fact that these are enjoyable titles, then we could consider future titles. As such, I would love to hear everyone’s feedback and impression upon playing the Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon and FFCC remakes as it’ll serve as an extremely good reference for whatever next title we may undertake.
