Crystal Chronicles US date

Fantastic.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is due out on November 3rd in America, according to a Nintendo representative. Having removed the game from its website for some reason, Nintendo was obviously inundated with RPG fans' anxious concerns, and one of their responses has now made it onto the Internet. "Please note that this game has not been cancelled," the punter in question was told, with the author of the email adding that "Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is currently estimated for release on November 3, 2003."

This projection seems to be echoed by online retailers including EBGames.com, although as we've already covered this morning, they're generally full of crap.

Whether it ends up coming out on November 3rd or later though, Nintendo's promise of a pre-Christmas European release is looking less and less deliverable.
