Square Enix, the premiere RPG gaming company, is busy advertising the new Final Fantasy 7 remake and the upcoming Final Fantasy 15 game.
Fans and hardcore gamers alike are awaiting these two fantastic titles, but there is one title that hasn’t got a lot of attention.
Today, I am going to talk about an upcoming Final Fantasy game that Square Enix developed silently through the months.
The game is the World of Final Fantasy. This game is a crossover between all of the Final Fantasy games of old. Not only that but the game showcases a “chibi” form of the characters.
The gaming company just released a new trailer and it pretty awesome. It showcases a lot Final Fantasy characters such as Squall and Quistis from FF8, Cloud and Tifa from FF7, Edgar and Sabio from FF6, and a whole lot more.
Now, most of Square Enix’s fans are teens and adults, so the company took another approach to entice younger audiences.
That is why they delved into making some of the famous Final Fantasy characters into their Chibi counterparts.
According to one of the top game developers of the company, Hajime Tabata, most of the people are preoccupied with expectations of what a Final Fantasy game would be. They want to change the approach by doing something different.
The World of Final Fantasy is their first venture into the world of Chibi characters. For those of you who do not know, “Chibi” is actually a Japanese term that refers to either a short person or a small child.
The story of the game will revolve around new characters namely Lann and Reyne. Both of them are suffering from amnesia and a certain character tells them that they have to do a quest before they can regain all of their memories back.
As depicted in the recently release world premiere trailer, the two of them will come across different Final Fantasy characters, some I’ve already mentioned earlier.
The game is set in the world of Grimoire. Not much is known about the place but I am guessing that it is a land of monsters and magic.
During the course of the game, both of the protagonists will come across “mirages”. They can utilize mirages to do their bidding like turning them into a mount or you can use them in battles.
Unlike newer Final Fantasy games, the World of Final Fantasy uses the battle system of old called the ATB or the Active Time Battle system. New and old players alike will surely love this battle system.
Aside from the world premiere and the things I’ve already mentioned, there is still no in-depth information about the upcoming game.
I am excited about their new venture, though. This is their first Final Fantasy game where they make use of Chibi character models. Even though it is targeted for younger audiences, I am willing to bet adults will also love this game as well.
The World of Final Fantasy will be released later this year and will be available on both Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita game consoles.
