Images of FFCC: My life as a King

Square-Enix just posted some new screenshots about Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King, an exclusivity for the Nintendo Wii. It will be launched with the WiiWare service for 1500 Wii Points (Japan). FFCC on the GameCube was cool, only if you had some friends to play with. I'm anticipating a mixed reception for this entry.

The latest footage of the game and screenshots seem like it's an entirely different type of game than before, and honestly does not look like much fun. Even the trailer shown last year looked like an entirely different, and better game.

I love co-op RPGs but I'm getting a little tired of seeing kiddy games on the Wii, though that isn't necessarily a bad thing for Nintendo I guess. Nor am I surprised about it. I've got a lot of friends with Wii's but they will only pick up party and sports games for it, nothing else. And definitely not something like this. Oh well.

The last Crystal Chronicles was ace if you and your mates had a GBA each. This allowed each player to view their own items, letters and you had to work together to cast spells and view the map. If i recall, one user would have a map, another with enemy locations etc.

If you didn't hook your GBA upto the Gamecube you missed out on a lot of neat features in the game.

One reason why i believe it didn't do too well is because the setup was costly. You had to have a GBA for each player and cable each to hook upto the system. The same can be said for Zelda four swords adventure. Great game, but how many people played in with 4 players?

Final Fantasy Cristal Chronicles: My Life as a King will be pretty decent if it works with the DS or even the DS Version of Crystal Chronicles out in Japan now.

I reckon this will be a decent game

Don't knock it, to you've played it.

This one will be more of a building game than an action rpg. I'm still intrigued though.

I just wanna point out that this is NOT the same game as the Wii Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.

This is a small game, equivalent of an XBLA title, which is much more based on the art style and overall direction of the original Gamecube title.

The Crystal Bearers has gone silent since we last saw the trailer, which either means it's cancelled (boo!) or in order to avoid the obvious confusion with this game.

About the game

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (4 Hours ago)
