Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers... I still can't get over that name. It's got three more syllables than Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, the game I previously thought would remain champion in the "unnecessarily long title" contest for years to come. I believe in Capcom though. Hopefully in a few years, we'll get Super Street Fighter IV Versus Resident Evil Turbo Zombie Warfare HD Wii Edition or something. That would be a triump indeed.
Anyway, back to the news. After the jump, you'll find videos depicting 16 seconds of break-dance violence and a little over a minute of a beachfront fantasy in The Crystal Bearers. It's videos like this that make me think this game is going to flop, despite how fun the game looks. I fear that Final Fantasy fans (of which there are many) will be turned off by the game's pervasive sense of humor and SD graphics, and non-Final Fantasy fans (of which there are even more) will be turned off by the, y'know, Final Fantasy-ness.
I guess I'll have to wait until Kwanzaa to see if I'm right.
