    I think that looks terrible.

    Wait, what? Multi-Platform? I'll just play with the DS controls.

    Be that as it may, it's still an interesting thing to throw into the game. Considering that very few games allow Miis on Wii games...

    Yes, also the fact that you can play on the Wii if you want to.

    Well, yeah. =P

    Then again, isn't Square doing the same with Chocobo's Dungeon? The Wii version is getting ported to the DS with extras and blah blah blah.

    All money on there being some form of a bonus for having both games connected, apart from what's shown here anyway.

    I take it that the previous Wii CC game has been cancelled then? Its been so damn long since we had any new media or info on it.

    I never played Ring of Fates, but I remember Crystal Chronicles for the GC was fucking horrible.

    I think "The Crystal Bearer" was more focussing on a single-player experience and it was a real Wii-game... not a WiiWare-game!

    But it might be cancelled...who knows [​IMG]

    it sounds interesting enough but i wasn't too blown away by Rings of Fate so I'll settle for cautious optimism here

    I can imagine how the DS version will look look RoF.
    But what about Wii version?

    Will it has better graphic (effect/texture)?
    or it simply put two DS screen on your TV and use wii mote instead of stylus?
    (Look at the second picture on bottom-right)

    I loved Crystal Chronicles on the GC. The single player sucked, but if you played with the GBA with 2+ people, it was hella fun. Hopefully its the same where you can play the Wii game using just your DS.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Woohoo, very much looking forward to this! I wonder how SE can actually make this many games. They must have one huge team.

    Don't think so, we would've heard if it was. Plus, it's spent ages in production, why cancel it now? And for a game in the same series as well.

    I got pretty excited when I saw this, since Ring of Fates was pretty overall good (not exactly the best replay value, but whatever!), and then I saw the Mii face and cried.

    Fantastic!
    FF CC: Ring of Fates is absolutely my favorite Final Fantasy game.
    The graphics are nice, the gameplay is Zelda-like, and the magic and such is fun to use.

    Looking forward to this, yay
