A Square-Enix insider recently revealed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
(formerly The Little King and the Promised Land
) would share a May 12th U.S. release date with the WiiWare service, joining Defend Your Castle
and Major League Eating: The Game
for the somewhat less than auspicious WiiWare launch lineup. The game will set you back 1,500 Wii points, or $15, if you prefer an actual monetary system.
We never thought we'd be hotly anticipating a Final Fantasy
mash-up, but when our other choices are limited to a once-free flash game that's been available online for nearly five years
, or a game that crudely depicts the action-packed world of aggressive binge eating
, the least of the three evils is abundantly clear.
