Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers

Enjoy real-time action and gameplay inside of the expansive world of the Final Fantasy universe!

FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: THE CRYSTAL BEARERS provides a fresh take on the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES series as it combines the storytelling depth, expansive world and graphical quality of FINAL FANTASY with motion-driven, real-time action gameplay. In this world, realistic gameplay and fantastical art direction are brought together for a truly unique experience for Wii users around the globe.

STORY:

A thousand years have passed since the events of the original FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES. The destruction of the Yuke Crystal during the Great War had at once brought the victorious Lilty Tribe prosperity, the defeated Yuke Tribe apparent annihilation and the world a new age of science and reason. In this new era exists a rare breed of powerful beings called "crystal bearers," whose seemingly magical abilities have led them to be feared and scorned by the public. The young mercenary Layle is one such crystal bearer, who has been hired to escort the new passenger airship Alexis, the pinnacle of Lilty technology and a symbol of their current dominance. However, when the Alexis is suddenly besieged by a horde of monsters, Layle comes face-to-face with an adversary thought to have vanished from the pages of history that's on a quest that may threaten the future of the world.

FEATURES:

  • Enjoy a new chapter of the series that takes place a thousand years after the events of the original FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES, where technology has advanced to its peak and magic is considered taboo.
  • Encounter the first FINAL FANTASY game developed exclusively for Wii, complete with motion-driven gameplay and intuitive controls that are accessible for gamers of all levels. Enjoy a variety of actions including flying and third-person shooter style gameplay.
  • Step into the hero's shoes and experience the action first-hand! Control Layle's crystal bearer powers to battle adversaries, navigate through obstacles and move objects at will in a highly interactive environment.
  • Traverse the terrain, swing from high places or take a swim in a world in which all areas are open for exploration.
  • With an extra remote, friends and family can jump in to assist the player in times of need.

Experience the first Final Fantasy title made exclusively for the Nintendo Wii console and join in the fun!

Hope it will be better then CC on Gamecube, which was a nice game but I did miss a great story in it.

Ok now I am angry. Must have screen shot! I need my fix!

And the weird part is it's going to be one of the launch titles.

ladeda said:

That is odd if they don't have any screenshots yet for a game releasing in about 2 months. I just hope it has more in it than the other one.

Normally, the only things I like about Final Fantasy are Moogles, Chocobo, White Mage & Black Mage. Everything else sucks. Except Cloud, Leon/Squall, Auron. Actually, forget Auron.

I hope it's 2 players like the first, but I hope you don't have to use the gameboy thing.

Loved the GC version, mostly for the multiplayer. But it definitely could be improved, hopefully the wii will fix its mistakes.

moobs said:

99% of FF games own so this is no different.

Final Fantasy are like the best RPG games out there! This one is going to rule like the rest. Some have been better than others, but even when these games had the crappy graphics they still ruled the game stores.

I wonder how it's going to play, because in the one for Gamecube you had to have separate screens using the GBA. My guess is that you use your DS to connect. Even if you have to do that the game will still be sweet.

OctoBot said:

If this is anything like the GC version, it'll own. I actually played the Gamecube version solo because I was moving so I didn't know any gamers in the new area with Gameboys. Even in solo it OWNS, the story is so deep and touching, the black knight got me crying. I KNOW I'll be enjoying this one even more because I know a bunch of people with DSs, assuming it uses the DS, can't wait. By the way, where does it say it's a launch title?

I love Final Fantasy, it rocks hardcore!

I have to get this game.

Am I like the only one that didn't like the CC on GC? I thought it sucked. I hope this one will be more like the PS1 and 2 versions.

Wolfen said:

[RS]Omega_Red, you're not the only one who thinks FFCC 'sucks'. I personally, wouldn't say it sucks, but unfortunately, it is far from the masterpiece it could have been. The single player mode can seem rather slow but the multiplayer mode is still nice (that is, if you manage to gather enough friends who are actually willing to cooperate and as many GBAs; which I haven't had the opportunity to do much).

Bonesnapper said:

Fools, the game is about multiplayer cooperative. They tried to make it different and in my opinion it's one of the best FF games. The online version will be twice as good.

Captain Jamesman said:

I don't play Crystal Chronicles that much. It kind of lacked what Final Fantasy games today have. The only thing I liked about this game is the battle system. You didn't have to intiate commands by a sub-menu. You just attack by pressing the A button.

Pray for no stupid multiplayer options *coughGBcough*.

Gonzo said:

This sounds like it's going to be a good game. I'll probably get it. Anyone know when it's coming out?

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

I heard it's coming out sometime in Winter 2007.

Ian C. said:

I love FF, my favorite is III for DS. I'll get this one too.

Gonzo said:

You think they'll make Final Fantasy XIII for the Wii. I would get that one.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Final Fantasy is okay, give it 85%. But I like RPGs like Disgaea, La Pucelle, Phantom Brave, World of Mana, Rhapsody, etc.

Gonzo said:

I need a screenshot or a video please?

KuPa said:

Well I beat cc on gamecube, it was sweet and this will be better (motion controllers).

Crimson Hawk said:

I have Final Fantasy: Dirge of the Cerberous. The gameplay kind of stinks, especially with the gun.

Captain Jamesman said:

There's only one Final Fantasy game I really, really want to get. And it's called, FINAL FANTASY FABLES: CHOCOBO'S TALE!

Avatar

Ian C. said:

Me too^^ Chocobos are cute.

Avatar

Dave Falcon said:

I hope you can play multi player with controllers, other than that it can stay the same (which is awesome).

Avatar

fRoZeN said:

Final fantasy is ok. Fire emblem is better. By a lot.

Avatar

Crimson Hawk said:

Chocobos are so cool, I would love to ride one.

Avatar

Solid Snake said:

Please, I would rather eat a chocobo than ride one.

Avatar

Stinky12694 said:

Mmm! Fried Chocobo.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Solid Snake you klutz! Why would you eat a chocobo? They wouldn't taste the same as chicken! Besides, they're supposed to be like Yoshies. So saying that would mean also eating a reptile we all know as Yoshi.

Avatar

Solid Snake said:

First I'd shoot it, then I would cook it, and then I'd eat it. Simple no? And besides, I saw my old friend Master Chief ride Yoshi as I rode a chocobo while we were shooting each other.

Saint Ducky said:

Well, I loved Crystal chronicles for the GC, so this one has got to rock! That would be so sweet if you're able to use a DS in multiplayer like you used a Gameboy advance in the original.

Captain Jamesman said:

Is anyone going to get Rings of Fate?

KH2 Sora said:

I hope it is better than the other Final Fantasy crystal chronicles on Gamecube. I have X2 and it is the best I played.

It's going to be awesome playing this game on the Wii. I'm going to get Fire Emblem first and after, SSBB.

I just hope this doesn't have the gameboy connector needed because I wanted to play four player on this game and only got to 2.

Could someone tell me what Chrono Trigger is?

PHiRE said:

Chrono Trigger was an RPG on the SNES. Supposedly a great one.

Avatar

Anon said:

Chrono trigger was on the Snes, and it WAS great. Way better then 9/12 of the final fantasy games! I like final fantasy, but I think it sucks since 9. 9 was like the last decent FF game.

And for my next fanartistic masterpiece, I will draw Mario chocobo racing against Sephiroth!

I am so getting this. The Wii has sparked a slew of new series I admire. This includes Zelda. I bet The same will be said about this.

Sonic Fan said:

You should try Mario chocobo racing against Sonic, CJ.

Captain Jamesman said:

Forget what I said before. I scrapped the idea since I was too lazy to do so. Anyways, that's a very weird screenshot.
