Square Enix will release Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time for Wii and DS on 24th March in the US.
"We'll announce the European release timing at a future date," the publisher told Eurogamer this afternoon, leaving "spring 2009" as the current estimate.
The most interesting part of Echoes of Time, besides the silly monsters and heard-it-all-before plot, will be the Wii-to-DS multiplayer. This should let friends adventure together using Wi-Fi and be quite seamless in motion, we're told.
Elsewhere, there's Mii Avatar support, or a choice of races to play as and plenty of customisation options to pick from.
The addition of multiplayer has also brought about a New Game+ feature that lets players replay the story, fighting tougher monsters and earning better items along the way.
