Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Young King and the Promised Land details

For those of us who had our curiosities piqued by Square Enix‘s announced downloadable Final Fantasy Chronicles title on the Nintendo Wii, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Young King and the Promised Land, here’s something that should get you stocking up on Wii Points. The video game’s going to set you back a cool 1500 Wii Points. That’s almost US$ 15 for a full-fledged Final Fantasy title. Not that bad of a price tag, eh?

This little bit of news comes directly from this week’s edition of that magazine filled with gaming goodness, Famitsu, along with a couple of details concerning FF Crystal Chronicles: The Young King and the Promised Land‘s time frame in the storyline and characters. It seems that the WiiWare downloadable title takes place after the events of the original Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles game on the Nintendo GameCube – with the player stepping into the shoes of the Young King named Leo.

As the head honcho in Square Enix’ newest Final Fantasy game, the player has to rebuild his own country from the ground up, using a power called “The Architect” granted unto him by the crystals.

Of course, using The Architect takes up precious resources, namely elemental skills, and these can be found in monster-infested dungeons. Of course, being a young king and all, Leo can’t storm into a dungeon and expect to survive – he’ll have to send in warriors and mages to retrieve the elemental skill before him, and it’s safe to say that this forms the combat aspect of the game.

Different classes will be featured heavily into the video game, and unlocking them merely requires building the necessary facility to do so (i.e. a magic school for mages).

All in all, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Young King and the Promised Land sounds like a very solid title to kick off the WiiWare channel. Here’s hoping the game’s North American version gets here quick, as Japan will be getting their chance to download the game on March of next year.
