Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition getting a patch in December
Square Enix has posted a new set of notes for an upcoming patch to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition. While not explicitly dated, Square Enix mentions a mid-to-late December timeframe for the update.
The patch addresses numerous bugs and glitches, and also offers a few small gameplay tweaks. Most notably, players who complete a dungeon together in multiplayer can choose to move to another dungeon as a group, rather than being forcibly disbanded. The patch doesn't seem to address some larger structural issues, such as game progression in multiplayer regarding the Myrrh trees.
You can read the patch notes in full below. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition releases for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices in August 2020, and you can read our review here.
