We know a lot of you have been waiting for more information about FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES Remastered Edition. So how about the release date?

You can get a taste of what to expect in the trailer:

Looks good, right?

As the name implies, FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES Remastered Edition is a new and improved version of the original FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES, which launched on Nintendo GameCube way back in 2003.

The action RPG is set in a land threatened by a deeply poisonous gas called Miasma. You play as a young hero who, with a Moogle companion or along with up to three other friends, travels the world in search of the rare and valuable liquid myrrh. With this precious resource, they’ll be able to cleanse and maintain a crystal that protects the land and its people.

The Remastered Edition of the game comes with enhanced features and even entirely new content. The visuals have been upgraded, bringing the game’s world and inhabitants to modern systems in glorious HD.

Audio’s been improved too, with new voiceovers that bring these memorable characters to life like never before.

The game also features online multiplayer for the first time - that’s exciting because FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES Remastered Edition is an amazing co-op experience.

The original version of the game required four GameBoy Advances and link cables to play with a full team, which was awesome, but also required people to have all that equipment to hand. Now, you’ll be able to play online for a far more convenient and seamless session.

Speaking of convenience, FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES Remastered Edition also features crossplay! That means you’ll able to play online with anyone who owns the game, regardless of their platform.

Whether you play with a team online, or as a solo adventurer, you’ll be able to explore dangerous dungeons and take on challenging bosses, some of which are brand-new and have been added for this edition of the game.

There’s also an entirely new ‘Mimic’ feature. It lets your character take on the form of different people you meet on your journey, so you can mix up your style. By collecting stamps, visiting Moogle Houses or completing difficult dungeons, you’ll earn special crystals, which you can use to change up your appearance. It’s a great way to mix up your style!

FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES Remastered Edition will be available digitally for Nintendo Switch, PS4, iOS and Android* on August 27, 2020.
