One of the rumors in the latest edition of EGM notes that Square Enix is "quietly canceling" Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers for Wii...
This makes me sad :( Hope it's just a bad rumor.
Ouch if true
Wow that sucks. I'm not much of a FF fan though so its not too bad for me.
It belongs to the hardcore
Which is why it should be on the Wii ^^
If you say so... :O
plain and simple
Yeah cause there has never been an FF game on a Nintendo platform.... ignorance is bliss?
@3.4 It's not so much that. I think what he was getting at is most of us just don't want to wave our arms around like monkeys trying to cast Fire2. :P
Well I would assume there would be multiple control schemes anyway. I personally think that the more subtle approach to motion controls works well for Wii games, ie Mario Galaxy.
It's simple truth of the games and how they have sold. SE probably formulated a FF type game just won't sell well on the Wii compared to the time invested and money into making it.
maybe it will come to psp
lets hope so..
Yeah I like the PSP idea. this game could easily be played on the PSP and with friends as well. it'll prove a huge hit in Japan. but if cancelled all together, then yeah, pity.
Wow, it was one of those games I wanted Wii for...
I mean it's already being watered down so i'm sure that will be garbage.
Damn you Square enix
Let's not freak out yet. There have been so many contradictory rumors about this game. Wasn't it just recently that we were sure it was canceled and then SE started hyping it again? That's not to say it isn't dead. I just wouldn't place too much stock in a rumor in a gaming magazine (and a second rate one at that). Once we get this from multiple sources with some evidence to back it up I'll believe it. Until then, I'm prepared to wait and see. I will say that it's odd that SE has neglected the Wii. They're dropping a DS remake practically once a month, so it's not as if they have some vendetta against Nintendo. You could say that it's a matter of hardware inferiority, but the DS is technologically weaker than the PSP, and yet they've showed plenty of love to both. Also, sales don't seem to be the reason, because other major RPG franchises--Monster Hunter, Tales of, etc.--are showing up on the Wii because their makers believe that will lead to higher sales at lower production costs.
"SE started hyping it again?" I think they were referring to the new DS/Wii FF?
Oh right. I tend to confuse those projects. I wonder if the old FFCC project morphed into that one.
You know what, I can honestly say I won't miss this game being made. I enjoyed the first CC, but this one I wasn't really feeling. Now Kingdom Hearts Wii...that would be great!
for those of you that are saying this should come to psp you guys made me laugh this game has CRYSTAL CHRONICLES in the tittle the crystal chronicles name is for the nintendo final fantasy games the new ones at least
This is to bad if true because I would have bought it. I also would have thought this game would have made a lot of cash so I wonder why it would be canceled. I hope this is justa rumor and nothing more.
Ok that is just total BS. Total BS Square >=(. I was actually waiting for this one until FF13 comes out. @qface64 Yeah now that you mention it, it's a Nintendo (sub)"franchise".
well in fact i would want a more classic crystal chronicles, this one used the ir pointer to use that purple ball thing... perhaps they canned the idea because they will make another crystal chronicles, a more classic one (not the echoes of Time one).
