Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord

Two downloadable content packs available today: "Palom" and "Living Room Set".

London (25th September 2009) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces that new downloadable add-on content for FINAL FANTASY® CRYSTAL CHRONICLES®: My Life as a Darklord™ for WiiWare™ is available from today.

FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a Darklord gets a magic boost today thanks to two brand new and exclusive packs of downloadable content. A guest appearance from FINAL FANTASY IV: The After Years™ will be available as a new recruit of Mira, our charismatic Darklord’s wicked forces in the form of the most powerful magic user in the kingdom, Palom. And if his presence wasn’t enough, players can increase Mira’s magical firepower even further by downloading a set of deadly Artifacts, which will make the life of any adventurer attempting to dethrone her extremely difficult. The full list of new content is as follows:


200 Wii Points / Blocks Required: 3

A stout ally making an appearance from FINAL FANTASY IV: The After Years. The strongest of magic fighters, Palom is not quick, but his Slow attack bedevils the best of adventurers. He may be mischievous, but build him up and victory is all but guaranteed. Purchase this, and you can place as many of him as your NP allows on the floors.

Living Room Set

400 Wii Points / Blocks Required: 2

A pack of four Artifacts to give you the advantage in battle: Purgatory Press (cuts adventurers' HP in half), Abyss Crane (warps adventurers to the bottom floor), Hypno-Box (stops adventurers from moving), and Bravery Stove (raises your monsters' attack power). Strategic placement of these Artifacts will make world conquest a piece of cake.


FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a Darklord turns the tables on players by challenging them to take on the role of the villain. As the daughter of the newly appointed Darklord, with a mission to take over the world, players must strategically place monsters and traps inside their tower to ward off invading adventurers. With this follow-up to the kingdom-building simulation FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a King®, WiiTM users can now enjoy the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES world from an entirely new point of view!


Introducing a new hero – or should that be villainess? The daughter of the Darklord!

Set fiendish traps for any adventurer foolish enough to cross you, and then send in your monstrous minions to finish the job!

Stop protecting the world as a goody-two-shoes king and start conquering it as a bad-to the-bone Darklord! Sure, there are legions of annoying adventurers determined to stop you, but as any self-respecting arch-villain would agree, swatting them is the best bit!


• Dynamic defensive gameplay - players rush to fortify their tower before it falls!

• Darklord uses the setting and characters of the FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES series to add rich flavour to the relatively simple gameplay.

• An abundance of audio and visuals stir up an intense, almost comical level of excitement for players.

• Built around a basis of obtaining even more powerful Artifacts and Monsters in order to clear increasingly difficult stages.

• The world map opens as players progress through the stages with various side quests being important for maximum completion.
