Square Enix Has Removed Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered From Sale In Australia/New Zealand

It’s been a rocky launch for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered in Australia and New Zealand, with the much-awaited Switch and PlayStation 4 port of the Gamecube classic having serious multiplayer connection issues locally. Like, no connection at all (thanks Vooks).

Now, almost a week after release, it looks like Square Enix is finally taking steps to address the issue, starting with removing the title from digital stores (the only place it was available at the time) completely. The company took to Twitter with the following statement:

After checking both the Switch eShop and the PlayStation Store we can confirm that the game has been removed from those platforms, save for the ‘Lite’ demo. Square Enix’s statement doesn’t address the potential for refunds or compensation for customers who already purchased the game but we’ll update this story when we hear more.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
