Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon vs. Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon DS

By Spencer . July 9, 2008 . 1:38pm

Square Enix just released Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon on the Wii in North America and a DS port is almost done. In addition to being portable, the handheld version has features like a yet-to-be-determined job and Cid’s adventure into the Labyrinth of Time. As we mentioned before, Cid and Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon: Labyrinth of Time DS + will come out in Japan this autumn. Square Enix will probably release it in North America next year too. Should you gamble and be patient? See clips from both games and decide.

    Kindof annoying how all the information on the ds game appears the day after I preorder the wii one…! Oh well, I’m a big fan of roguelikes and this one looks pretty fun. It’s probably worth playing both of them.

    So… is this a parallel story? Or is this the same exact game plus added extras? Is there a reason to buy the Wii version (which I was very interested in prior to this announcement)?

    @Mark – It’s the same game plus extras.

  • Pedro Silva

    I’ll prefer the Wii version.

    better graphics, home console, etc.

    Yeah, as much as I love my DS, it’s nice playing games on the big screen.

    I’m definitely not annoyed. I think the timing was perfect — Square just saved me 40 bucks that I would’ve spent on the Wii version and can now save for the superior DS game.

    I’ll prefer the Wii version. better graphics, home console, etc.

    I don’t really care about better graphics in a dungeon crawler. The DS game seems clearly better — Cid mode, at least one extra job (they may include all five), and dungeoning on the go. No contest.

    Interesting to see the Wii version getting a DS port complete with extras and a completely new Cid to boot. I was originally thinking it would be a Cid from a previous Final Fantasy (namely Final Fantasy IV), but this is also good.

    @ ethelred

    While this question may seem odd, are you the same ethelred from NeoGAF who’s been MIA from there for quite some time?

    I’d rather play it now so I got the Wii version. :)

  • ethelred

    Yeah, that’s the one.
