New Square Enix Game For Diehard Fans Has A Mashup Of Final Fantasy Monsters

By Spencer . January 4, 2013 . 12:50am


The Square Enix members program in Japan goes beyond yearly gifts. Players can create an avatar, write blogs, and unlock items for The 3rd Birthday. Square Enix: Legend World goes a step further and turns your Square Enix Members avatar into a Final Fantasy monster slayer.


This browser based RPG features monsters from different Final Fantasy games as enemies. Players will be able to fight the Bomb, Goblin, and King Behemoth from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers. Ring Wyrm, Cactaur, and Alraune are from Final Fantasy XII.

Square Enix: Legend World uses Stage 3D and Flash to present a world similar to a 3D RPG. If the specs are too high you can switch to simple view (right) instead of real view (left), which shows an active fight. The game plays the same in either view.

Square Enix is looking for people to sign up for a Closed Beta test slated to start in early 2013. Early players will receive a Gold Shield as a reward.

    No fun allowed for anyone outside japan huh?

  • ragingmerifes

    I think Final Fantasy XV will be for iOS or browser-based…

    • ahmad H.

      But I think it’ll be Mainstream console (like PS3) based…

  • negineBIT

    Cactoid, not Cactuar. Cactoid is cute, although I have major trouble against Flowering Cacktoid in XII

    • JustThisOne

      Those dancing bastards. >:I

      Speaking of which, I really do miss Cactuars and their weird running pose stance. Hope they come back.

    • Detrimont

      i know this is an old comment, buuut…

      it’s actually a cactite, cactoids have extra cactus balls on the top of their heads

  • Aurizen

    one word, bring it to the US and on consoles.

    • That was more than “one word”, but agreed lol

  • Curan_Altea

    Ooh, Crystal Chronicles monsters. Loved that game (original).
    A remake would do nicely to make up for that Wii “sequel”.
    ….. I’m kinda off topic.

    • JoJo_649

      Indeed!! I also wonder why they made such radical changes to a system that only needed refinement to be perfect, hopefully they remake the original and create a true sequel for it on the wiiu.

      • Curan_Altea

        This is one of my many hopes for video games, but alas I doubt it will happen.
        Crystal Chronicles (original) would be great on the 3DS.

  • entrydenied

    No link to the site of the game itself? No source?

  • Draparde

    wow, i’d actually play this :o i did enjoy the way the avatars looked but felt no reason to do anything with them lol

  • Pockystix

    people are STILL playing the 3rd birthday?

  • AA

    Bringing this to US and porting this to a console would be legendary.

  • Japan onry

  • harmonyworld

    hmm, I have an avatar but I thought that’s all it would be~

  • MK

    It doesn’t look bad actually, for a browser game.

  • hawk222

    I thought the avatar in the thumbnail preview was based off of Neku…

  • Very impressive for a browser game, actually.

  • neetyneety

    Wow, a Square Enix browser game that actually piques my interest.

  • Ladius

    That’s surprisingly good for what it is. Maybe they could try to localize this, considering it would have more impact than the usual Japanese browser games.

  • Elvick

    Haven’t been able to sign into my Square Enix account since the last website design. Resetting my password doesn’t work at all. And their help desk and FAQ is useless.

  • Guest

    this almost all FF12 assets. I recognize the Dalmasca estersands here.

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester


  • ShawnOtakuSomething

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan
