Square-Enix’s Wii pittance — in artwork form

January 8, 2008

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Young King and the Promised Land. The name has 10 year-old saving the world written all over it.

This is Squeenix’s bite-sized MMO for Wii’s Wii Ware service. (Don’t quote me on the MMO bit. I’ve been gone for a while.) In it, presumably, a young king builds an empire, and you’ll help him build kingdoms via a Wii remote in our Earth realm. Wii stalwarts who won’t buckle under the temptation of FFXIII will, god willing, find something in this consolation prize sham of a side-series.

How this game won’t make Wii’s 512 megs fart under pressure is a mystery to me. However, one safely assumes that SE and Nintendo are working overtime to ensure that you know VC downloads can be deleted (and re-downloaded later) to make room for this shaky experiment in digital distribution. As if we could forget — with the channels themselves duking it out each and every day, bareknuckled, against the retro downloads everybody’s crystallized, beer-goggled nostalgia convinces them to buy.

Sufficient storage space is merely an option in the console war.

    Geeze. If they had this game out for real, like with packaging and everything, they could throw in a thumb drive for the usb. If Sony can sell FFXII on PS2 with a frukin harddrive, they can sell it with a cheap-o flash drive just as easy. As for Wii Ware…Nintendo can blow me.

    all ic an think of, is if they can manage to squeeze that into 512megs, that’s fucking amazing. that’s a ripley’s believe it or not segment right there.

    It would have to be less than 512 Megs, if they want people to download it! I can’t see people erasing all of their other downloaded channels just to make room for one game!

    Most of my regular downloads I make to my 360 Elite are more than 512 Megs! I’ve been spoiled by MS… I already used up more than 60 Gigs of my 120 Gig drive, and I even forgot that console hard drives could have less than 1 Gig!
