Square Enix has announced that its anticipated DS RGP Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates will be released in Europe and other PAL territories on March 21.

"With a strong focus on action and exploration Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates offers an exciting, fast-paced adventure," said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. "If you've never played a FINAL FANTASY game before, Ring of Fates is the perfect introduction and offers even more fun when played with friends."

Ring of Fates is said to offer 3D levels, exploration and puzzle solving. Of note for gamers not too keen on the random encounter system seen in more traditional Final Fantasy games, Ring of Fates allows you to engage enemies when you see fit. Four players will be able to connect wirelessly to experience the game as a group, customising their characters so each player is unique.

Expect more on the game close to its March 21 release date.
