Square Enix’s new action-RPG Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time for both the Wii and Nintendo DS is coming out in Japan in a few months on January 29th, 2009.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time coming to Wii and DS

The latest issue of Japanese manga magazine Shonen Jump has a reveal by games developer Square Enix who announced a new action-RPG titled Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time for the Wii and Nintendo DS! The game will be released in Japan on January 29th, 2009. This news comes after this year’s release of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fate for the DS, but before the Wii follow-up Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has even been given a release date. Like Echoes of Time, both of those previously announced action-RPG’s are also sequels to 2003’s Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles on the GameCube.

Echoes of Time will feature a Wii / DS connection that allows you to play the game with up to four players (using four different character classes) on the DS and Wii at the same time (both locally and online!) thanks to a Pollux Engine created by Square Enix. As you might expect, the two versions will have different gameplay, namely using the DS stylus or Wii Remote.

The story is said to revolve around nearly-16-year-old Charlotta, who goes out of her village for the first time, only to encounter a massive tower and a mysterious crystal. Not much else is known at this point, but a fun tidbit is that you can transfer your Mii characters’ faces you made on the Wii to the DS version.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories coming to PS2 in America in late 2008


Chain of Memories on GameBoy AdvanceA year and a half ago Japan got Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ that included an extra disc with a 3D remake of the GameBoy Advance RPG title Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. Out of the blue yesterday at the Gamestop Manager Conference, rpgsite confirmed that Square Enix representatives mentioned they will be releasing Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories as a standalone game for the PS2 in America during the Holiday season 2008, at a price of $29.99.

To those who didn’t play the original, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories takes place between Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II. Aside from adding polygonal 3D battles and worlds using the same graphics as seen in the first Kingdom Hearts game, Square Enix will also add voice acting, new cutscenes, an improved soundtrack, and brand new battles that weren’t in the 2D original.

It’s finally coming! Get hyped by watching some Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories gameplay from the Japanese version.
