Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time, A Multiplatform Movie

By Spencer . October 2, 2008 . 10:45am

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is the first cross platform game for the Wii and Nintendo DS. Interestingly, it doesn’t look like there is any difference in the level of graphics between the two versions. You get Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates quality models on the Wii with a different interface. This might not be a huge issue since Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time’s key feature is online play which the trailer emphasizes.



Square Enix plans to sell both versions for the same price, 4,800 yen (about $45). This puts Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time on par in price with other DS games in Japan and slightly cheaper than the average Wii title. If both versions are identical except for the controls I’ll get the DS version. I love the idea of a portable, online action RPG.

    DS version for me! Can’t wait to play with friends online.

    This looks like how Crystal Chronicles should have always been, multiplayer wise. I am really looking forward to this!

    Kinda lame that the Wii version looks to share assets with the DS version… it’d be nice if textures and modeling were bumped up accordingly, at least to FFCC GC levels. :/

    I have liked all of the crystal chronicles games so far released so will be interested in this, but kinda intimidated by the wifi friends code… (hope there is a functional single player mode too)

    So they’re putting both of the DS’s screens on the TV screen for the Wii version? :( That’s kind of…lame…

    Hopefully they let you play it full-screen. Kind of crappy to only get half the screen for gameplay. Looks like I’m getting the DS version.

    WTF, how crap is this?
