If you’ve been experiencing any difficulties with the online multiplayer component of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition let’s just say it could be worse, depending on where you’re located.
Since last week’s launch, players in Australia and New Zealand have been experiencing ongoing connection issues. Local Nintendo website Vooks tested out the game across all platforms (Switch, PlayStation 4, mobile) and was able to confirm multiplayer would not work for more than a few seconds before disconnecting players. This issue has now been present for nearly one week.
According to the same source, the game has now been pulled from the Switch eShop and PlayStation Store in this region. Not long after this, Square Enix shared the following statement via Twitter, explaining how all sales will be suspended until this issue is resolved:
We have had reports that some players in Australia and New Zealand are having difficulty accessing the multiplayer feature of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition. This is being investigated at present and to ensure customers have the best possible experience, further sales of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition in the region will be suspended until the issue has been addressed. We understand that this is not ideal and would like to offer our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience caused. We’ll post the latest updates on Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition here, so please bear with us.
We had a look at this region’s eShop ourselves and can also confirm the game has at least been temporarily taken down from Nintendo’s digital store. If you’ve already bought it, you can still download it.
