Our excitement levels for (deep breath) Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates
are steadily rising -- not only did our ears prick up earlier this year at the Famitsu
score of 35/40, but this morning we got a release date for PAL territories (spring 2008, the same as the US release) and pretty screens
(bizarrely in two different sizes).
Most of all however, we're looking forward to wirelessly questing with chums on our handhelds. For many, getting four players together for a co-op game of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
on the GameCube was an almighty headache, if only because the Cube itself was just so damn sparse
. Fortunately, DS ownership is somewhat more common
, which should make assembling parties of warriors in Ring of Fates
-- dubbed "the most accessible Final Fantasy
ever" in this morning's press release -- a piece of cake.
