Dash Bomber writes, "In 2004, Square Enix released Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. It was the first Final Fantasy game to be released on a Nintendo console after the fallout between Square and Nintendo. However, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles turned out to be very different to what fans were expecting. The Final Fantasy brand is associated with story heavy RPGs and character development. Crystal Chronicles, on the other hand, is an action game with role-playing elements attached. Yet, in spite of the action oriented gameplay, the story of Crystal Chronicles deals with some serious philosophical matters regarding memories."
