By Spencer . April 10, 2009 . 11:00am

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is a pick up and play, drop in and drop out multiplayer game. Different from many online enabled console RPGs there is an option to link up with worldwide players.

By Ishaan . April 8, 2009 . 12:32pm

Let’s get something right out of the way: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time is, at its core, a game designed around a co-op muliplayer experience.

How Much Smoother Does FF Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time Look On Wii?

By Spencer . February 19, 2009 . 12:25pm

Square Enix’s newly created Pollux Engine made it possible to develop the same game for the Nintendo DS and Wii.

Crystal Bearers Trailer Has… A Lot Of Throwing

By Spencer . January 28, 2009 . 10:24am

Last night, Ishaan found the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers trailer which snuck out a day early.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time And Cross Cultural Communication

By Spencer . December 10, 2008 . 10:01am

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time has worldwide online play which is awesome.

Earlier this week Square Enix set a release date for Dragon Quest V and announced Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.
