You can view the quoted comment from Producer Akitoshi Kawazu below:

“It’s the 20th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES. Personally, I feel regret for not being able to satisfy the fans who have been holding out hope for an all-new FFCC game. While there’s so much I’d like to do, I just can’t find the time to do it all.

I know that the characters deserve to shine again, yet I’ve been unable to provide them with another adventure. They’re eager to set out to discover the true meaning of the crystals’ blessing, and much like those of us who were cooped up at home for the past few years, they could only gaze up at the skies above their respective towns, day after day.

But new trials do await them—ones from which they will grow stronger. Please trust that one day, a brand-new chapter will be added to their adventure.”

“I’m thrilled to have the honor of drawing an illustration for the 20th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES. Many of these characters I hadn’t drawn in so long that I couldn’t help but feel like I was reuniting with old friends I hadn’t seen in forever.”
