Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will launch for PlayStation 4, Switch, iOS, and Android on August 27 in Japan, Square Enix announced. It will be available both physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 and Switch for 4,800 yen, and digitally on iOS and Android for 2,820 yen (a portion of the game can be played for free).
Outside of “summer 2020,” a western release date has yet to be announced.
Additionally, Square Enix announced the new “Imitate” system, which allows you to change the player’s appearance and voice in battle to that of one of the sub-characters that appear in the story by collecting certain items. If you are playing online multiplayer, you can put together a dream caravan crew that would not be possible in the main story.
Other new elements include:
- Online multiplayer and cross-platform support.
- Addition of a “High-Difficulty Dungeon & Boss” unlocked after clearing the game.
- Addition of new character variatons, equipment, and upgrade items for each race.
- Newly recorded narration and theme songs “Kazenone” and “Hoshizukiyo” by Yae.
- Newly recorded character voices.
