Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time Slated For Spring

image Of course Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is coming to North America and it is getting a speedy localization too. Square Enix will release the Wii/DS game in Japan first on January 29 with a limited edition Nintendo DSi. A few months later in the spring Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time will cross the pond when Square Enix publishes it in North America.


The story is about a sixteen year old hero who just returned home from a monster filled forest and a rite of passage. In his village he finds a young girl with “crystal sickness” and only the hero is brave enough to leave home to find a cure for the weak girl. You play as the hero which can be any of the four races in the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles universe: Clavats, Lilties, Selkies, or Yukes. The character you make can be further customized by changing equipment and using your Mii. Yes, Square Enix is publishing the Wii and DS versions in North America too. However, they haven’t announced a price for either console. Gamestop lists both games at $39.99 which sounds about right.

    I really liked Ring of Fates as it is one of my favourite ds experiences in the role playing department. However I fear this game will have a lack of content due to the multiplayer focus.

    I will remain a bit optimistic despite that.

    I really really hope they bring back co-op multiplayer for the main story mode, which was the best thing about the original Gamecube game.

    I don’t think the Wii version being listed at $39.99, a Wii game with the same graphics of a DS game, in fact, the DS game for the Wii; is about right, I found it insulting when this company has nothing else coming and seeing this… isn’t even trying.

    $39 for the Wii version isn’t bad honestly, makes sense that both versions would be priced the same.

    Now that I think about it, haven’t all Square Enix USA’s Wii games been $39 (DQ Swords, Chocobo Dungeon)? I wonder when we’ll see a “premium” release?

  • lostinblue

    I don’t think it makes any sense, wii media is cheaper than DS is, and this is a DS game we’re talking about, ported for the wii. $29.99 would be the logic step to take on something that doesn’t exactly make sense to start with.

    The logic is in pricing a multiplatform game consistently. I understood that both versions would each be $39, DS and Wii.
