Update: As per a new PlayStation Blog post, Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition will also launch across Europe and in the US on 27th August. There's even a new trailer to whet your appetite which we've embedded above.

Original article: Remember Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition? Believe it or not, this game was originally supposed to launch on PlayStation 4 all the way back in January! A significant amount of time has passed since then, and it looks like Square Enix is finally ready to launch the remaster. It now has a release date in Japan of 27th August 2020, and we reckon confirmation for Europe and the US won't be too far behind.

Courtesy of Gematsu, there's also a new feature to be detailed. The Imitate system will allow you to change your appearance and voice into one of the sub-characters during a battle if you collect certain items. This mechanic joins the likes of online multiplayer, support for cross-play, newly recorded voice acting, and new character variations, equipment, and upgrade items for every race.

We will, of course, update you with the news of an official release date for Europe and the US whenever Square Enix decides to share it. We don't think it's too far away, however.
