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.
