One Switch release we're eager to get our hands on in the new year is Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition. If you have fond memories of the multiplayer action-RPG first released on the GameCube back in 2004, you're probably already on board this hype caravan.

Unfortunately, though, its arrival has come to a sudden halt. An update from Square Enix has revealed the remastered edition will no longer be releasing on 23rd January next year, and will instead be pushed back to summer 2020. Below is the full statement from the publisher:

Since announcing Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, we’ve read so many positive messages filled with encouragement, and all of us on the team would like to thank you for the support you’ve shown us so far.

Today we’re announcing that the release date for the game is being moved to summer 2020. We’ve made the decision to adjust the release date to allow the development team some extra time to make final adjustments to the game to make this the best experience possible.

We know you’ve been waiting patiently for this game, and we hope you’ll continue to support us as you have done so far, over the coming months through to launch.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition is coming to PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android devices. You’ll be able to play online with your friends and transfer your save file across all four platforms when the game launches in Summer 2020.

Thank you again, from all of us on the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition team.

As noted above, the decision to delay the game is to ensure it offers the "best experience possible" to players. A neat feature, as stated, is the ability to transfer your save file across all four platforms and you can also play online with your friends.
