Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time Has Worldwide Online Play, It’s Coming Out In NA

ffcceot Square Enix USA has yet to announce Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time for a domestic release, but it’s a shoe in. If the Echoes of Time trademark wasn’t enough of a clue, a menu screenshot shows Echoes of Time players can choose to connect with someone with in their home country or search for adventurers from around the world. The only reason why Square Enix would add worldwide play in Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Echoes of Time is if it’s coming out in other regions. The cross platform Nintendo DS/Wii game will make its debut in Japan on January 29, 2009. We’ll have to wait for Square Enix to officially announce Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time for North America to get a release window.


The Tokyo Game Show trailer has another look at the multiplayer gameplay with swimming and a boss fight with a heavily armored goblin. Around the thirty second mark you can see the character creator. You can choose one of the four races (Clavat, Lilty, Selkie, Yuke) and pick a gender which makes eight possible base character choices.

    My god I can’t wait for this… Hopefully we get an extremely early ’09 release, even a late ’08 release if it is possible.

    I realized this only gets released in January in Japan, so now I feel really stupid. I still hope for a Spring release.

    … Where is the edit button… >_>;;

    Well, it was a 4-5 month gap for ROF iirc, and 3 months for MLAAK. I bet we get EOT in late Q2 (before July).

    This game is ridiculous, selling a Wii game with DS graphics for the same price as the DS game… lol.

    Rubbish Square-Enix support this is.

    Worldwide online play ? Nice… It seems like Square-Enix has thought about making the game as accessible as posible for everyone to play. The Wii/DS multiplatform release and similar graphics with low requirements in Wii´s case (I´m guessing to ease online play) surely point to that. Great idea in my opinion.

    @Pedro Silva

    Like always, graphics aren´t everything… If the gameplay is great and you can play it with everyone around the world from either a Wii or DS, how is that bad ? By using that argument to criticise the game´s approach you´re no different than those people that claim that the Wii or DS are worthless when compared to PSP and PS3/360 because of its lower graphics capabilities. And we don´t know how much will the game cost outside Japan yet.
