The weekly magazine brings new details on characters and new gameplay mechanics in Square Enix's upcoming Wii game.
Last week, Weekly Famitsu offered its readers details on the plot and gameplay of Square Enix's Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers while offering an interview with the game's directors. This week the coveted Japanese gaming magazine brings even more details regarding the game's universe.
The first of these details is on a new character named Keiss. Keiss is a male Selkie who partners with Kyle, Crystal Bearer's lead, who has earned the trust of many army leaders. Since gamers can't create parties in Crystal Bearers, Keiss can't be controlled.
Two new gameplay details were also explained.
The first of these is Playable Events, which are scenes where you interact with cut scenes at certain points in the game. Players will shake the Wii Remote or point at certain parts in the scene. Some of these are scenes are required to be completed successfully in order to progress, but the story will continue on regardless.
The other gameplay detail, Demon Reaction, is a gameplay element that's been featured on the site's teaser videos. Demons and enemies will react to each other when left alone, and will react to the character's actions when you engage in battle.
So far, there is no firm release date for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.
