Multiplayer Final Fantasy is coming to Switch, PS4 on Aug. 27


If you’ve conquered Final Fantasy 7 Remake, you’re probably ready for another dose of the classic RPG series. Square Enix will deliver on Aug. 27, when the remastered Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles hits Nintendo Switch, PS4, Android and iOS devices after a bit of a delay.

You can join up to four pals to fight enemies and solve puzzles as you travel to gather magical fuel for crystals that protect towns from the dangerous Miasma — a pretty typical old school Final Fantasy plot.

The original version of Crystal Chronicles, which holds an 80 rating on Metacritic, came out on Nintendo GameCube in 2003. Its four-player mode was a bit of pain, since it required the use of up to three Game Boy Advances connected to the console. 


You can battle beasties with your buddies in Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered.

This remaster will be a major upgrade, improved audio and visuals, new character voiceovers and dungeons. It also includes cross-play with online support, so it won’t matter what system you get it on or where your friends are. It also has a new “Mimic” feature, which lets you change your characters’ appearance to that of someone else you’ve met on your adventure. So if you meet a particularly cool looking person, you can basically become them.

If you can’t wait until August, most of the old Final Fantasy games are available on modern devices — Final Fantasy 8 Remastered is a particularly good option.
