Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles overview
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles synopsis
When a meteor falls from the sky and shatters the great crystal, lacing the land with its shards and smothering the countryside in a blanket of poisonous miasma, people are forced to build towns around the crystals to protect themselves from the abounding monsters and send out travellers to collect drops of myrrh and recharge the crystal's protective energies. But this endless cycle will have to end sometime... what is the origin of the meteor? And why are the villagers perpetually losing their dearest memories?

A couple days ago at the Nintendo Fall Conference, it was revealed that Square Enix would develop a Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles spin-off exclusive for the Wii. The catch is that this game, titled Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Small King and the Promised Country, will be a Wii-Ware title making it downloadable only. It also appears to have much more of a strategy element to it, ala Sim City. Players will have to build and govern their own land. FFCC: The Small King and the Promised Country is due out in March 2008 for Japan and there has yet to been an American release announced.

Square Enix, as a self-described "premiere [maker] of high end-collectibles" plans to stock a multitude of "popular and hard-to-find items" including Master Arms, Play Arts, and Mechanical Arts spanning various series, from Final Fantasy to Kingdom Hearts.
