Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered: Full Review

Collect Drops of Myrrh and Set Off On an Adventure

In order to protect their villages from the deadly Miasma, adventurers set off in caravans to search for drops of Myrrh that can keep the crystals empowered. Unlike most Final Fantasy games, Crystal Chronicles is an action RPG so you can try your hand at a different type of FF experience.

Diverse Range of Music


Just like in the original, Kumi Tanioka handled the music for the remaster. Her compositions fit the world of Crystal Chronicles perfectly and will surely be pleasing to players ears. We in particular love the theme for the first dungeon, River Belle Path.

All New Online Crossplay

The remaster supports crossplay allowing Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile players to all play together. In the original to play with friends you all needed a GBA and a special GBA link cable which could be expensive so this is much more convenient for most.

New High Difficulty Dungeons

Excluding the last dungeon, the previous 13 dungeons now have a hard difficulty mode that can be challenged. If you powered up your character too much in the original you had a chance to make things far too easy. This time, however, you can use all of that strength you've accumulated and take on even tougher dungeons.

New Customization Options

Each tribe has 2 new looks they can choose from resulting in a total of 40 different variations. On top of that, the new Mimic system allows players to change their look to an entirely different character, be it existing NPCs in the game or characters from other Crystal Chronicles series games via DLC.

Multiplayer Can Be Difficult

With the remaster, multiplayer has become online only and you can now play with anyone connected to the internet, not just your friends. However, as there's no longer local multiplayer, communicating with your party members is much more difficult and having an ongoing voice chat in a different application is highly recommended for those seeking to take on the high difficulty dungeons.
