"According to Famitsu, Square has officially announced that it currently has four Game Boy Advance games in development. The first is a Chocobo sequel due out at the end of the year. The second is Final Fantasy Tactics, which was revealed during the formation of the paper company set up by Nintendo and Square. It's scheduled for release this winter. The third game in the lineup is a Secret of Mana game, but it's currently not known if it will be an entirely new game in the series or simply a port of the original. Lastly, there's Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle, which will apparently support the GameCube and Game Boy Advance connection functionality. Both The Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle are due out in spring 2003. "

(lifted from Gamespot).


Impressive to say the least. I could live without the chocobo game, but playing FF Tatics has some definite merit. And I don't care WHAT they do with Secret of Mana, because if they just port over the SNES version as is we win because that game OWNED, and if it's a new one we STILL win. With the announcement of three more quality rpg's (plus the potential for several older Final Fantasies to be just ported over like Breath of Fire was), the GBA is quickly becoming THE system for RPG fans.

What I'm very interested in though is how 'Cyrstal Chronicle' will work with the connectivity betweem the two systems. One can safely assume Square is going to make their first Nintendo game in while a blockbuster, but how two RPGs (one being portable) connecting seems curious, unless they make it like the Oracle Zelda games on the GBC.

Very impressive, indeed. However, for myself, Square's going to really have to pull out a FF6-style blockbuster with Crystal Chronicle and port over Seiken Densetsu 3 before I can put aside their near-fatal backstabbing of Nintendo in the past.

I'm curious to see what happens when FFT comes out for the GBA; that game can go on and on and on... I'll be happy if they ever decide to redo Chrono Trigger on there, though. That will definitely make my day! :)

FFT is a classic... that I've already played and played and played and played and played out. It's not as if Sony's losing sleep over that one, as it's already gone through two PSX print runs.

I may be one of five people who liked Chocobo's Dungeon 2 (I have a weak spot for roguelike random-dungeon RPGs), so the game mentioned here has some interest for me.

Secret of Mana didn't blow me away -- certainly playable, certainly popular, but it just didn't click with me. Oh well.

SerWolfe, Crystalis was ported to the GBC, so, it'd work fine in a GBA if'n you can find it. Sadly, they changed the story a tad, and changed the badass opening (no more end of the world in 1997), and made the music suck. Other than that, it's bloomin' kickass. I think the dragon warrior games were also ported to the GBC.

The world didn't end in 1997, Khan didn't leave Earth in 1996, Big Brother wasn't watching me in 1984...I'm thinking that fiction and the real world need to get on the same page.

Don't mean to go a little off-topic here, but I've been pretty happy with my GBA. FPW rocks, Advance Baseball, for an portable title, is the best handheld baseball game out there right now (I know, there's no trades, but it's 100x better than Acclaim's All-Star Baseball 2K3 -- I mean, ECW on PS is a better Acclaim title )...

Then there's Golden Sun, THPS3, and countless Mario rehatches in living color. Hopefully, the new WWE release won't suck as much as the first one did, supposedly.

Dragon Warrior I&II (same cartridge) was released for GBC, and is excellent. Fresh and hobo-tastic!

IGN Insider had some footage of the new Final Fantasy game coming out for GameCube and it looks like it plays like Kingdom Hearts (which is to say it plays like Zelda or Secret of Mana).

There wasn't a whole lot to see yet, though. Just your typical Final Fantasy hero fighting off some skeleton-ish things in a cave of some sort. Still, it's a video game with Final Fantasy in the title. Even the worst (VIII) wasn't that bad.

I echo the sentiments of everyone: I won't buy crippleware for that much. Yes, I'm sure that there will be an adaptor developed for the lesser system by a third party, but come on.
