Square-Enix’s Wii pittance — in artwork form
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.
