The game will only allow online multiplayer.
It was many moons ago that Square Enix released Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles for the Nintendo Gamecube. The quirky title spanned a brief subseries in the legendary franchise on Nintendo systems, and now many years later the game is set to make a return with a new remastered edition. However, it will lack at least one feature it had back in those days.
As posted on the official Twitter and translated by Twitter user Robert Sephazon, it was confirmed the game would not have a local multiplayer and co-op option. The only reason given is “development issues.” The original Gamecube version did have local multiplayer, but it also required multiple GBAs and connector cables to connect to the system to use as controllers. Whether that has any relevancy here is anyone’s guess, but it seems if you want to play multiplayer you’ll have to do it online.
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition comes to PlayStation 4, Switch and mobile devices on August 27th.
It has been confirmed that Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered does not offer offline/local multiplayer due to development reasons. https://t.co/YoSZ0UMvI2
