No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition has indeed been announced.
Per Square Enix, the title will have been given the remastered treatment. New dungeons, new voice-overs, and new costumes round out some of the added features.
Updated: Square Enix has sent out the official pressers and this is all the remastered edition includes:
- Updated Visuals and Audio – Experience the world of FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES in stunning new ways, with upgraded graphics and audio updates enhancing the magical adventure like never before.
- New Character Voiceovers – Playable heroes come to life with brand-new voiceovers as they cast spells and battle ferocious monsters.
- New Online Multiplayer – Play online with up to three friends to overcome the dangerous monsters and dungeons that fill the world*. No players are left behind, as the game supports cross-play functionality.
- New Dungeons and Bosses – Challenging new dungeons and bosses have been added to the game, allowing for even more fun and exciting gameplay opportunities.
- New Character Appearances and Items – Stand out with brand-new looks and artifacts to equip and use throughout your magical journey.
That’s not all as the game will also support up to 4-players online, and features both cross-platform play and cross-saves! There’s also an option to exclude a specific platform as well if that’s something you’d want to do.
Though this makes me wonder if the game is being developed for the mobile platforms and being ported to the PS4 and Switch, or vice versa.
