Square GBA titles announced

from www.planetgamecube.com:

Square GBA Titles Announced

Squaresoft has recently announced a list of titles that will be appearing on the Game Boy Advance. Here's the list.


Chocobo Successor (End of 2002)
Seiken Densetsu (Summer 2003)
"New" Final Fantasy Tactics (Winter 2002 / early 2003)
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle (Spring 2003; has GameCube link feature).

Final Fantasy Tactics is listed as new, but current news says the title is a port of the PlayStation version. The "new" is most likely referring to the added features.

Is Seiken Densetsu going to be a straight port? It's about the only title on the list I'm interested in. Crystal Chronicle sounds Mystic Questy, but I hope I'm wrong.

SD and FFT sound great. Hopefully FF: CC will be OK too. Any word on its Gamecube counterpart?

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle (Spring 2003; has GameCube link feature).
So, what's the deal on this. How is it going to link to the Cube? Is it going to come with a disc or is there another unannounced Gamecube game that it will link up with?

Yes, there will be a Gamecube FF title that will hook up with the GBA one.

Really, CreatureX? Who says?

What it sounds like on the news sites is basically you'll be playing the GBA game on the GC screen almost.

The news says FFT isn't new, but more like a "FFT Special Edition" almost.

The Seiken title is being developed by Nintendo's Brownie Brown with the original producer from Square working on it.

That's the impression I get too...which doesn't make much sense. I know you can upload games from the GCN to the GBA, but going the other way seems a bit far-fetched.

I think the confusion comes from the Gamecube FF game having the same name as the GBA game, 'Final Fantasy Crystal Chronical'. Here are the details from Gamers.com:
Last but certainly not least, the long-rumored Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle was confirmed as being able to connect with the GameCube release of the same name, and can be played on your GBA or TV in conjunction with its GC brother. The game will have multiplayer aspects, and players will be able to cooperate in their quest.
