So we had ordered Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon for the Wii, and we received it yesterday. So far it is just too cute!
Basically the premise is that you are the chocobo (creatively named “Chocobo”) who along with Cid (a treasure hunter) gets transferred to the town of LostTime. Everyone there has lost part of their memories due to the ringing of the Bell of Oblivion in the middle of town.
With the help of a baby who came out of the sky, you are able to enter people’s minds and fight your way through their dungeons that are plagued with mobs. Once you complete the dungeon you collect the individual’s memories, which allows that person to remember things.
You also have different jobs that you can change between. So far I have Whitemage (yay!), Natural, Blackmage, Knight, and Dancer. There are 10 jobs in total, so I still have to find Dragoon, Theif, Dark Knight, Scholar, and Ninja.
You’ll notice there is now a Chocobo’s Dungeon link list which I’ll add links that I find regarding the game. Here is the first one.. http://faqs.ign.com/articles/893/893882p1.html
I was originally worried about how difficult movement would be, since there is so much range when dealing with a wii remote, but it hasn’t been bad. I think its increasingly cute that when you are in your item screen, you can just shake the remote and it sorts your items.. lol. Its like shaking your bag.. just strikes me as cute.
As I learn more, I’ll share 🙂
