Square Enix Collective is making a Switch announcement this week

We're losing our collective minds

Square-Enix Collective is cooking up something for Switch, and it seems they're pretty excited to talk about it. The official Square-Enix Collective Twitter account has shared a tease for an announcement to come this week.

Polish game retailer lists Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition with an Aug. 28th, 2020 release date

Is the band getting back together this Summer?

Square-Enix originally planned to have Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition out for the Switch last year, but the game ended up getting delay to some unknown date in 2020. While Square-Enix is yet to share that date, one Polish retailer has just updated their listing with some info.

While not confirmed until Square-Enix themselves announces it, Polish retailer Ultimate shows Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition as launching on Aug. 28th, 2020. I think many were hoping the game would be earlier in the year, so in this case, let's hope the listing is incorrect.

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!
