Final Fantasy Explorers Will Connect Players Locally And Through Wi-Fi

By Sato . June 16, 2014 . 1:08am


Last week, Square Enix announced Final Fantasy Explorers, an upcoming multiplayer action game for the Nintendo 3DS, with familiar job classes from the Final Fantasy series. Game Watch recently shared some details on the game’s multiplayer connectivity options.


According to the Game Watch report, Final Fantasy Explorers will have a multiplayer mode with ad-hoc (local wireless) and Wi-Fi options for teams of four to get together and party. For those of you who prefer to play solo, that won’t be a problem, either.



Final Fantasy Explorers  will have players take on various quests while working together with their allies. The game also features popular summons, monsters, and job classes that have appeared in past Final Fantasy titles.


So far, we’ve only been introduced to four jobs in Knight, Monk, Black Mage, and White Mage, but we’ll likely be hearing about more in the near future, along with further gameplay details.


Final Fantasy Explorers is in development for Nintendo 3DS.

    Interesting. I do wonder if it will be a “party hunting game” in general. Hmm… Just imagine if it’s like Monster Hunter; beating up Ifrit and carve out his horns, or beating up Ramuh and carve out his…uh, beard?

    Also, the graphic will definitely be great! SquareEnix can really push the hardware’s graphical limit!

    • Go2hell66

      will probably be like crystal chronicles in terms of graphics(and maybe gameplay as well)

      • notentirelythere

        The proportions on the characters in the spread were very different, and everything so far’s looking a whole lot blander than CC, lol.

    Fantasy Life or Final Fantasy… I know! Both! Man..

    • Helios373

      same here, both! lol

  • neocatzon

    Enhanced edition imminent, like usual trend on monster hunting games.

    Fear aside, FFV’s beastmaster sounds perfect. Give me old man avatar and sage job, I’ll love you even more.

    • darke

      They’ll call it “Final Fantasy Explorers Final”. And then of course they’ll make a “Final Fantasy Explorers Final 2” because Square Logic.

        and Final Fantasy Explorers Final – Explorer’s Return and – Explorer’s Return ULTIMATE

        “Final Fantasy Explorers Final 3: Lightning Edition!”

  • I just want another CC game… I miss the one on GC, and it HAS aged well.

  • Postnjam

    This sounds like the hunting of ffxii mixed with monster hunter.

  • Judgephoenix

    Guess what SE guess what!?!?!!?
    You’re Doing it right =)

    • SlickRoach

      Let’s hope they keep this attitude and deliver with FFXV as well.

  • Kornelious

    This sort of reminds me of Fantasy Life (Even though I only heard about that a few days ago) But it lloks like this game is gonna be pretty good and looks perfect for the 3DS!

  • SMT

    I gotta say, this is one sweetass logo.
    This smells of the same creativeness that gave us the wonderful PSP games (Crisis Core, Dissidia, Type-0) and a very interesting choice. At the very least, it’s a step in the right direction, and the MH feel might be SE going after their word when Bravely Default sold well, that they’re going to focus on the Japanese market because that’s what sells worldwide, instead of lame attempts to appeal to the west without pleasing neither the Japanese nor the west…

  • IS | 桂木

    Ah, Wi-fi play, not bad. Now if Type-0 HD has online play, that’d be golden

  • Henrique Melo

    Would this be a spiritual successor of the Crystal Chronicles series?

    • Vanadise

      I’m hoping it will be a spiritual successor to the DS Crystal Chronicles games, but I’m afraid it will be Square’s Monster Hunter clone.

    • Vash bane

      I was thinking more of the cube version (only one that I own…I heard they changed a few things in the DS version so never touched it) lol
