SqEx: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers is not dead

Yesterday we pointed you to some information on GoNintendo on the Wii RPG Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers. It seems that EGM ran a rumor that the title was canceled. Square Enix caught wind of this and told GoNintendo to expect a statement soon, and that it was not canceled.

Today they have the exclusive on this title, which Square Enix says they “have every intention of releasing.” The following is a statement from Sonia Im, Senior Public Relations Manager of Square Enix:

“While much of EGM’s ‘Rumor Mill’ contents end up being accurate, in this case the report is incorrect.

We have never announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has been canceled and have every intention of releasing it. There may be some concerns as a firm ship date has not been set but rest assured there will be an announcement once we finalize the date internally.

Although there are many Square Enix related rumors out there that we do not comment on, due to the feedback from the readers, we felt it was necessary to provide a statement to alleviate the worries of those who are looking forward to the game. The fan base that the Final Fantasy series has is appreciated by everyone at Square Enix (not only the developers) so we hope this statement will prevent any further spreading of the rumor.

We apologize for any unnecessary distress this rumor may have caused and hope the fans of the series can again look forward to the upcoming release of Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.”

You hear that, EGM? You caused distress! Kidding! As Squeenix said, those guys are usually right. They just messed this particular rumor up.

So, we still have no idea when it’s coming, but it is.
