Wii gamers looking forward to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers may find it hard to believe that the action-RPG is coming out at all, after years of wondering what was going on with the game. But Square Enix announced a Japan release date of November 26, giving us hope that it would come out worldwide soonish, if not this year.

But it is coming out this year in North America! Barely! Crystal Bearers will be out in North America on December 26, just in time for people to return whatever games they received as Christmas gifts from well-meaning relatives. And just in time for students to spend their holiday breaks tossing Cactuars around.
