Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time Coming To North America Soon?

ffceotus Earlier this week Square Enix set a release date for Dragon Quest V and announced Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume. They didn’t mention Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time at all and I wouldn’t have expected them too since the game wont come out in Japan until January 29, 2009.


But, hey, we have a pretty good idea that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time will get an international release since it has worldwide online play and “Echoes of Time” was trademarked in the USA. The question is really when and according to a retail leak from good old Gamestop it might be soon.


ffcceotPlaceholder pages for the Wii and DS versions of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time popped up with a March 31, 2009 release date. That’s a Tuesday and since games are typically released on Tuesdays its possible that Square Enix will have the English version ready by then. However, since this is a retail listing I wouldn’t count on Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time coming out exactly then. Maybe we’ll see it in spring ’09.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was coming out in spring, S-E seems to be pushing “play with your friends worldwide over WFC” with this game. I might get the DS version, I still lol at the Wii version though.

    yeah, the Wii version is nothing but a joke; Square-enix isn’t even trying.

    ^silly commenters above.

    the wii version is the nds version. they’re both the same game, i believe. it’s like having a super gameboy color/gameboy player for your wii. except it’s a full retail price disc versus a piece of hardware i guess. smart bussiness move on square-enix. it saves on development cost. (it probably didn’t cost them anything) but then again, the pollux engine probably cost them some money. who knows. only the graphic whores cry like little bitches over things like this.

    some examples: “-insert any developer- square-enix isn’t pushing the wii hardware to it’s limits!” “the wii can do more than this!” “it’s just no one is pushing it or building a game from the ground up!” blah, blah, blah, blah.

    no, it’s not silly, when this is the only title square-enix has upcoming for the Wii (taking Crystal Bearers aside, that had rumors that it had been canceled this week nas has had no news for 1 year and a half now) you’ve got to wonder just what they’re trying to achieve (if they’re trying to achieve nothing then they’re on the right track)

    And… this, the only game they have coming… is a Wii game, or rather a DS game running on the Wii? some kind of joke surely.

    The first poster is aparently even forking the $40 for the Ds version, but why should anyone fork $40 for the Wii version? a DS emulated game? I for one really think I really shouldn’t, if this sells then what? they know they don’t even have to try and we’ll have FFIII and FFIV for the Wii with DS graphics as Q4 2008 (christmas timeframe) Square-Enix games? surely S-E is jesting.

    If they really wanted this poollux engine to be a bonus, they should just let people with the DS cart download this one free of charge… not charge the same price as the DS game to run the aforementioned DS game on the Wii.

    stop your crying. you want square-enix games? then buy another console. it’s that simple. square-enix doesn’t seem interested in the nintendo wii. the ps3, xbox 360, ps2, psp and nds is were square-enix is at. get it over man, the wii is trash.

    also, if you don’t like it. then don’t buy it.
