08.11.07 - 3:26 AM
Square Enix has revived the Chocobo no Fushigi na Dungeon (Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon) series after eight years. The company plans to bring Chocobo no Fushigi na Dungeon Toki Wasure no Meikyuu to Wii later this year. The game is produced by Yuuki Yokoyama, who had previously worked on Chocobo to Mahou no Ehon and Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, while Square Enix executive director Shinji Hashimoto is serving as executive producer.
The game's main characters will be treasure hunter Chocobo and Cid. The development team is implementing a Final Fantasy-like job system, where each job offers a unique set of abilities (skills and magic).
The first Chocobo's Mysterious Dungeon title became a big hit in Japan following its 1997 release on PlayStation. The following year, Square released a sequel, and in 1999 a WonderSwan Color-based remake of the first game.
Chocobo no Fushigi na Dungeon Toki Wasure no Meikyuu will be available in Japan sometime this winter.
