Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition has suffered a delay on Nintendo Switch.
“Since announcing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, we’ve read so many positive messages filled with encouragement, and all of us on the team would like to thank you for the support you’ve shown us so far,” the publisher explained in a message.
“Today we’re announcing that the release date for the game is being moved to Summer 2020. We’ve made the decision to adjust the release date to allow the development team some extra time to make final adjustments to the game to make this the best experience possible.
“We know you’ve been waiting patiently for this game, and we hope you’ll continue to support us as you have done so far, over the coming months through to launch.
“Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is coming to PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android devices. You’ll be able to play online with your friends and transfer your save file across all four platforms when the game launches in Summer 2020.
“Thank you again, from all of us on the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition team.”
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition tells the tale of a world that has become covered in a poisonous miasma, with its people coming to rely on a crystal to stay alive.
That sees your adventure follow a young group, called the Crystal Caravans, as they set out on a journey to search for myrrh – a precious and rare liquid needed to cleanse and maintain the crystal.
The action RPG was released on GameCube way back in 2003 and marked the first time that the series (but, admittedly a spin-off) had appeared on a Nintendo home console since Final Fantasy VI on SNES in 1994.
You can team up with up to four players in online multiplayer, and with new areas to explore inside dungeons, those that played the original game will still come across surprises.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2020.
