Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition gets an Aussie rating

Can we have a release date, please?

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition was originally supposed to be out by now, but was delayed to an unspecified date in Summer 2020. While we wait for confirmation on a new date, at least we can see things are moving along on the game.

An Aussie classification for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition has just popped up, which hopefully means new details are coming soon. The game has garnered a PG rating, which it was given for mild fantasy themes and violence.

Polish game retailer lists Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition with an Aug. 28th, 2020 release date

Is the band getting back together this Summer?

Square-Enix originally planned to have Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition out for the Switch last year, but the game ended up getting delay to some unknown date in 2020. While Square-Enix is yet to share that date, one Polish retailer has just updated their listing with some info.

While not confirmed until Square-Enix themselves announces it, Polish retailer Ultimate shows Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition as launching on Aug. 28th, 2020. I think many were hoping the game would be earlier in the year, so in this case, let's hope the listing is incorrect.

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!

Final Fantasy VIII director looks back on the dev team's goals, critical response, and more

Reminiscing with Kitase

Game Informer recently featured an interview with Final Fantasy VIII director Yoshinori Kitase in order to look back on the game alongside the Remastered version's release. Check out a summary of the interview below.

- inspiration for VIII came from VII in an effort to contrast VII's dark tones, but also from the team's "days as students"
- the team thought a story about kids in school would be a nice, cheerful story to go with
- the team didn't really worry about the junction (new magic) system
- the team was more worried about the reaction to the whole "school-drama story"
- Kitase says that they really wanted to try something beyond "defeat the monster, you get some money, you get XP"
- "Final Fantasy VIII sold very well, and in that sense, it was successful. But as far as reviews at the time went, they were kind of all over the place."
- Kitase says the salary mechanic (in which students get paid periodically) as a chief reason why some people didn't like it
- he also believes the slow burn of the junction system annoyed people
- Kitase was inspired by Magic: The Gathering to create the Triple Triad minigame
