Enjoy real-time action and gameplay inside of the expansive world of the Final Fantasy universe!

FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: THE CRYSTAL BEARERS provides a fresh take on the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES series as it combines the storytelling depth, expansive world and graphical quality of FINAL FANTASY with motion-driven, real-time action gameplay. In this world, realistic gameplay and fantastical art direction are brought together for a truly unique experience for Wii users around the globe.


A thousand years have passed since the events of the original FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES. The destruction of the Yuke Crystal during the Great War had at once brought the victorious Lilty Tribe prosperity, the defeated Yuke Tribe apparent annihilation and the world a new age of science and reason. In this new era exists a rare breed of powerful beings called “crystal bearers,” whose seemingly magical abilities have led them to be feared and scorned by the public. The young mercenary Layle is one such crystal bearer, who has been hired to escort the new passenger airship Alexis, the pinnacle of Lilty technology and a symbol of their current dominance. However, when the Alexis is suddenly besieged by a horde of monsters, Layle comes face-to-face with an adversary thought to have vanished from the pages of history that’s on a quest that may threaten the future of the world.


  • Enjoy a new chapter of the series that takes place a thousand years after the events of the original FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES, where technology has advanced to its peak and magic is considered taboo.
  • Encounter the first FINAL FANTASY game developed exclusively for Wii, complete with motion-driven gameplay and intuitive controls that are accessible for gamers of all levels. Enjoy a variety of actions including flying and third-person shooter style gameplay.
  • Step into the hero's shoes and experience the action first-hand! Control Layle's crystal bearer powers to battle adversaries, navigate through obstacles and move objects at will in a highly interactive environment.
  • Traverse the terrain, swing from high places or take a swim in a world in which all areas are open for exploration.
  • With an extra remote, friends and family can jump in to assist the player in times of need.

Experience the first Final Fantasy title made exclusively for the Nintendo Wii console and join in the fun!

I played it a few days ago at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. The graphics and the controls were awesome, but in the demo there weren't any combat situations whatsoever. That was a little bit disappointing
But I'm really looking forward to this title. I hope it will hit German stores in December!

Fighting! with a gun! and telekinesis powers! what better weapons (or in this case powers) could you ask for!

This game is really short if you expect that this game is a long one bad luck for you guyz but the graphics is awesome ass beyond my imagination ... In the end Layle fight Jegran With his crystal skateboard .... . The gameplay is awesome but focusing on the pointing and shake control which is allright soooo overall I'll give 88% it a masterpiece but a really short game ..

I'd give it a 40% or less. Short game is right. Unless you get caught up in re-fighting all the monsters every time you go through and doing all the side games. Lots of side games that have nothing to do with the storyline and are not necessary to complete the main scenario.. Lots of nice graphics but little play time that does not involve running back and forth between the areas or re-fighting the same monsters. Once you get the point, grab and throw thing down, its a piece of cake to get through. Which is about all the main character can do - pick things up and throw them. Fight sessions are almost fool proof and short .Half the time spent is scanning the sidelines for things that you can pick up. A map and compass would have been nice. As would some decent instructions. Where some games run up to 160 hours, this less than a quarter of that and most of it is more like a movie than a game.

I just beat this game. I GREATLY enjoyed it. I think most of the animosity towards it comes from the fact that it is very different than other FF titles (and FFCC too). I enjoyed the graphics, rich tapestry of locations (a lot of exploring), fast paced gameplay, and excellent storyline! It has a few flaws (a terrible map system, you cannot pick up items or use magic while riding a chocobo, and the act of throwing objects CAN get somewhat repetitive- although I liked it) but the way you take down bosses and enemies is unique and fun. There are also boatloads of side-quests and medals to earn (making the game MUCH longer)!!

I recommend it. It was a worth-while purchase!

I found it in the discount bin yesterday and my first impressions where that graphics and gameplay are very impressive. I can see how people would have problems with the camera controls however, but really its minor griping. Recommended!

I've already poured over 35 hours into this game & I've only gotten 44% of the medals (aka in-game achievements) so I'm really suprised to hear so many people say that FFCC: The Crystal Bearers is so short. I guess if you don't do any of the sidequests & focus only on the mainquest then it may be short but the world is so big & it takes time to get from one place to another plus why not play the sidequests? You're like missing out on heaps of the game. Also, I find the battle system to be really fun & highly interactive, a lot more fun than just choosing an option from a list & watching your character do the work for you. This is a really big, awesome action-adventure game with really great graphics for the Wii & quirky, different music at times. Sadly the game seems to be disliked because it's so unlike the other FFCC games, but that's a very good thing imo. The only dissapointment would be the map, but after I've poured so many hours into the game, I know where I'm going w/o any map needed. If anyone out there hasn't played this game & you like adventure games, get this game! It's a real gem
