New Final Fantasy Game Playable On Both Wii AND DS? Huh?

Illustration for article titled New Final Fantasy Game Playable On Both Wii AND DS? Huh?

Before we go any further, know that the full details on this are a little scarce, and we imagine we'll only get the whole story at TGS next week (or during the Nintendo presser in a few hours). But the latest issue of Famitsu says that upcoming Square Enix RPG Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time will be playable on both the Wii and DS. Same game, available on both systems. Meaning that the Wii version is - yes - essentially a port of a DS game. There's some other stuff about being able to play cross-platform (which is presumably the whole point of this), ala Crystal Chronicles, but again, we'll hold off on getting too excited until we get the full details from Square Enix next week.

Anyone else hate when Kotaku states a source such as Game|Life and the link doesn't work? Maybe it's just me.

But seeing as I can't see the source, I can't verify, but it seems unlikely that it would be the same game on both systems. I believe Luke is correct in the "a la Crystal Chronicles", but I believe it will be more true to that. Game for Wii. Downloads to DS.
