There goes my self-respect...

I guess there's no use hiding the fact that I'm infatuated with Square's upcoming DS release, Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales. Oh, I'm not as interested in it as I am FF Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates, FF XII: Revenant Wings or even Heroes of Mana, but since those games have yet to be announced for the U.S., I have to make do with games that are on their way to our shores.

FF Fables definitely seems a bit "kiddie," and I'm not so sure how I feel about it being centered around mini-games, but after seeing the preview videos posted to I have to admit I'm more interested than ever before.

In particular, take a look at this video of the game's card battles:

Not only does the art style look amazing (especially the origami-like summons), but it features the series' old-school battle music.

I guess I know what I'll be playing in April (well, when I'm not working my way through Super Paper Mario on the Wii). Hopefully I'll be playing some other Square goodness soon after as well.
