The Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates wiki last edited by drawfire on 02/17/13 01:10PM View full history

Overview

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates is an action RPG released by Square Enix in March 2008 for the Nintendo DS. It is the spiritual successor to 2004's Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles on the GameCube.

Plot

In traditional Final Fantasy style, Ring of Fates is not a direct sequel to the GameCube original. Instead, it is a prequel, set in the same world but focusing on different characters and a different storyline. In Ring of Fates, the plot focuses on a pair of Clavat twins named Yuri and Chelinka.
The Game also features several hints and references to the original Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.

Gameplay

Ring of Fates is an action RPG, similar to Kingdom Hearts (another popular Square Enix franchise). Like most RPGs, the gameplay has three main focuses: visiting towns, exploring dungeons, and engaging in combat. Like its predecessor, Ring of Fates also features a wealth of dedicated multiplayer content.

The Overworld and Towns

As with most RPGs, Ring of Fates uses an overworld, commonly referred to as a "world map". While the majority of RPGs feature fully explorable over worlds, Ring of Fates follows the example set by the original Crystal Chronicles and offers an overworld which acts as more of a map. There are several destinations on this map, and rather than physically walking from place to place, the player can simply cycle through the locations using the DS' D-pad and select a town or dungeon using the A button. The game can be saved at any point on the world map by pressing the Y button.

The town of Rebena Te Ra acts as the central hub for the game's proceedings. Here, players can shop for new weapons, armour, magicite and items before venturing into a dungeon.

  • Items
Players can find three types of items throughout their adventure,
  1. magicite which acts as a resource to cast magic
  2. Recipes which allow you to craft new weapons and armour whilst at Rebena Te Ra
  3. Materials which are required to craft items from recipes.

Items are gained by using recipes, each time generating a slightly different item.

  • Multiplayer

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Ring of Fates features a unique multiplayer mode that strips the game of its story and cutscenes but adds a unique quest system, this adds up to an excellent multiplayer cooperative experience.

  • Quests

In multiplayer players can complete quests for rewards, these quests involve the players completing a unique challenge such as defeating all enemies within a time limit ect.
in these challenge stages, unique power-ups appear such as super jump or invincibility. 

Soundtrack

The soundtrack for Final Fantasy Ring of Fates was composed by Kumi Tanioka, and the soundtrack was released September 17, 2007.
