Final Fantasy Explorers, a new mobile game from Square Enix for the 3DS, combines the familiar jobs you love with a multiplayer action-RPG system.
It’s been a fantastic week for Final Fantasy fans, and Square Enix continues to sweeten the deal with every new announcement. With the latest issue of Japanese video game magazine Jump, the developer revealed Final Fantasy Explorers for the Nintendo 3DS, a multiplayer role-playing game where you seek out Crystals while eliminating a series of classic Summons who want to take you out.
Each player will be able to choose their own specific job, while playing a different role. They’re based off the already-existing specifications from previous Final Fantasy games, such as Black Mage, White Mage, Knight, and Monk. Player parties will consist of four players, and each person involved will have to use their own special abilities to make sure the Summons never again see the light of day.
Final Fantasy Explorers doesn’t have a concrete release date yet, but the rest of the year should have plenty to whet Final Fantasy fans’ whistles: With the announcement of Final Fantasy Type-0 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as the free-to-play Final Fantasy Agito releasing for iOS and Android later this year, there’s never been a better time to be a Final Fantasy fan. And let’s not forget about Final Fantasy XV, which will making, arguably, the biggest splash out of the entire rest of the stable. It looks fantastic, after all:
