In another news, Square Enix has announced that a remastered version of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles will be launched for the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. A short trailer of the game was showed in the Playstation Lineup Tour which is a pre Tokyo Game Show event.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles first came out for the Nintendo GameCube back in 2004. The gameplay tasks players to battle enemies and solving puzzles. The main objective in the story is to gather Myrrh which is an energy source that sustains crystals that are need to protect the world from Miasma.

The implementation of the multiplayer makes sense on the Nintendo Switch, while we yet have to see how the Playstation 4 version of the game will emulate it.
