Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will launch digitally for PlayStation 4, Switch, iOS, and Android on August 27 in the west, day and date with its Japanese release, publisher Square Enix announced.

In Japan, the PlayStation 4 and Switch versions will be available both physically and digitally.

Here is an overview of the game, via the PlayStation Blog:

What is Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles?

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a one-to-four player RPG that focuses on a young group known as the Crystal Caravans, as they embark on an epic journey to search for myrrh. This precious and rare liquid is desperately needed to cleanse and maintain a crystal that protects them, and their world, from a poisonous gas.

You—either on your own or with up to four friends—will embark on perilous quests, explore beautiful lands full of secrets and face the dangerous monsters that lurk within.

What’s been added to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition?

As mentioned, a host of enhancements and features have been added to this new game—so much so we should probably call it Remastered Addition. I mean, yes, that’s a terrible pun that barely makes sense, but the overall point stands.

Here’s just a sample of what’s in this new and improved edition:

  • Improved Visuals and AudioFinal Fantasy Crystal Chronicles’ always had a unique sense of style, and [the Remastered Edition] has never looked—or sounded—better. You’ll be able to explore this expansive world with updated HD visuals and even enhanced audio.
  • Character Voice-Overs – the inhabitants of the game have been brought to life with new voice acting.
  • Online Multiplayer with Cross-PlayFinal Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is an amazing co-operative multiplayer experience, and Remastered Edition makes it easier than ever before to join people to play with. You’ll be able to travel with up to three other players (four players total)—and cross-play support means anyone who owns the game will be able to join!
  • New Challenging Dungeons – This updated version of the game also features new dungeons for you and your friends to battle through. We could say more, but we’d rather let you discover them for yourselves.
  • New “Mimic” Feature – By collecting stamps, visiting Moogle Houses or completing difficult dungeons, you’ll get Memory Crystals which you can use to change your characters’ appearance to that of various characters you’ll meet on your adventure. If you want to add a bit more pizazz to your party, now you can!
