Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers is neither dead nor alive according to Wired's Game|Life blog. Sorting through conflicting reports, it has come to the conclusion that the game is not cancelled. Game|Life's Chris Kohler says:
"In its most recent issue, Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine said in its rumors column that the role-playing game had been 'quietly canceled.' Square Enix was quick to issue a lengthy statement to the effect that it was very much alive. Who's right? After looking at the situation, it seems likeliest that Crystal Bearers isn't dead -- but that much like so many other Square Enix projects, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to ship."
I really hope this game comes out. I liked the original Crystal Chronicles for GameCube far more than most human beings. When I first saw a sequel teased for the Wii, I was super excited for it. Crystal Chronicles' unique gameplay absolutely makes sense on the Wii. Now excuse me while I go make a wish for this game in my magical crystal room.
