Square Enix Expediting Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time

ffcceot North America will see Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time in stores on March 24. The game launches in Japan this Thursday which means the localization gap between regions is a mere two months. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes Of Time just might set the benchmark for the fastest Nintendo DS and Wii localization by Square Enix USA.


Both versions will be priced at $39.99 so the Wii version is a tad cheaper than the average Wii game while the DS version is a tad more expensive. The announcement came with a bit of news about Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time too. Beyond the main adventure there is a New Game+ feature with a harder difficulty and better gear to find.


What other surprises await you in New Game + ? Here’s a hint.

  • That’s my birthday! Awesome.

    Also…40 bucks for the Wii version? They’ve got to be kidding. Even the Play on Wii games are cheaper than that.

    *sigh* cheap gamers

    • You do know that the Wii version is basically upscaled DS graphics right?

      I actually haven’t been able to confirm this yet because it’s so hard to make out from the trailers, but I think the game runs on Wii in a sort of “windowed” mode with borders all around.

      Edit: I just checked again and that’s exactly what it is. Not worth 40 bucks on Wii if you ask me. DS? Day one.
