Today Square Enix announced it will deliver Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time to both the Wii and DS simultaneously in North America next spring. Designed to be played cooperatively, players will be able to go adventuring with each other -- regardless of platform. Wii owners can play with DS owners and vice versa, uniting the world under the common cause of Final Fantasy.
The story involves a young hero who must venture out beyond his neighboring forest for the first time and find a cure for a mysterious illness. Final Fantasy's popular crystals will feature heavily in Echoes of Time.
