Two for Wii, none for you!
We just got back from the Square-Enix conference, and there is tons of news to report. In addition to the already annouced games, Square blew the lid off some secret titles in development for various Nintendo consoles.
First off, Dragon Quest will be making it's way to the Nintendo Wii with the title "Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen & The Tower of Mirrors." The trailer showed a person running through the woods with a Wii controller, slashing at bad guys. No gameplay footage was shown. However, the game is confirmed to be a launch title for the Wii.
They also showed off two new Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles games. The first, subtitled "Ring of Fates" is a game for the Nintendo DS. While Square confirmed that the game will have multiplayer support, there was no mention of whether or not it would support Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. What's very interesting is that there did not appear to be a "bucket" (the crystal that created the space all characters had to remain within) in the game.
The other Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles game was titled "The Crystal Bearers" and is in development for the Wii. It was described as "a fusion of graphics and style." No gameplay footage was shown, but the CGI trailer showed a lot of airships.
As for other games, a little was revealed about Children of Mana for the Nintendo DS. The game includes a new "ricochet" system which applies Newton's 3rd Law: "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
