Square Enix plans to release Wii role-playing adventure Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon across Europe on 31st October.

Here we have Chocobos, the bird creatures from the Final Fantasy universe, dressing up in wizard and knight outfits and collecting the lost memories of a town from various dungeons.

The result was a Metacritic average of 77 per cent from summer US reviews. Conclusions pointed to rather old-fashioned design based around challenge rather than plot, although the childish presentation was lauded for the usual Square Enix polish.

Head over to our Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon gamepage for all the screenshots and videos so far, and look forward to our review closer to release.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
