Awardees' Profile
[ Comment ]
In the RPG, the friends are presented as both helping and opposing each other as they grow up together. In Crystal Chronicles, you can actually have them by your side. I am deeply grateful to Mr Hiroshi Yamauchi who has given me the opportunity to create this game, to the people in Nintendo for their cooperation, and all the people and staff at SQUARE ENIX concerned in the creation of the game, who, it might be said, also both helped and opposed each other. Finally, to the people who have played Crystal Chronicles (especially those who have bought it), thank you very much.
[ Reason for Award ]
Equipped with a new mode called Multi Play Mode, this work enables four players to simultaneously participate in the game via Game Boy Advance. Finished workmanship in both graphics and music is of top quality suitable as a work representing the year 2003 and operations fully tuned to a controller are also smooth and nice. With a story containing a dream, players can enjoy the narrative feature of a role-play game to the full. This is a game with well-balanced fusion of all elements that deserves the Grand Prize.
