It seems as if we will be the bad guys in Final Fantasy Explorers, as we’ll have to beat summon monsters in order to acquire crystals for mankind. However, these crystals are like the planet’s life source, and summons like Ifrit will do everything they can to stop us. 4Gamer shows us more.

Explorers will face all kinds of different Summons from the Final Fantasy series as enemies. The first one Square Enix have shown us thus far is Ifrit. In Final Fantasy Explorers, Ifrit fights with an all-out attacking style using physical attacks with his powerful body, and fire-based magic. He can also bust out with his signature attack, Hellfire.

Ifrit will likely be the first major boss that Explorers encounter in the game, which might make him sound like an easy foe, but you might not want to take him too lightly, as he can also bind players with his roars and throw giant fireballs, as well. Imagine getting caught in that combo?

 

According to the 4Gamer report, Ifrit will always be closing in on you, and you’ll need to study his patterns and take advantage of openings to land some hits.

The above is a look at the Regi Plains and Hibato Volcanoes, two of the early areas in Final Fantasy Explorers.

Final Fantasy Explorers is in development for Nintendo 3DS.

    Can’t wait for MH-style FF Game to be localized.

      Captain?

  • Tetris

    This is looking really nice.

  • J_Joestar

    Can’t wait to see how we are supposed to take on Eden the space cannon.

    • Ferofax

      …thinking about an Ultron fight makes me giggle.

  • Ban The Jackass

    He’s like Rathalos, except he can’t fly?

  • Land of Green Pasture

    it feels like I’m seeing ROdyssey in this game

  • Mc-kun

    This seems interesting but I would love to play a RPG that you do something like take over the world or be the big bad villain.

      Tried out “Holy Invasion Of Privacy Badman” also named “What Did I Do To Deserve This My Lord?”?
      There’s three games and they are about a generic lovablecard carrying evil villain trying to conquer the world.
      The game is a dungeon keeper, where you build a dungeon and wait for heroes to arrive and trick them into getting themselves killed

      • Mc-kun

        Nope but I might try it thanks. The only game that I’ve played a character going evil (sort of) was Nocturne.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/Kevassa02 kevassa

          Most games that make you play as a villain dont take themselves seriously, like the series I mentioned or FF My life as a Darklord.

          Now Baten Kaitos…

  • Daniel Rossevelt

    Now I am starting to get interested just need some video of the game-play to really make up my mind.

  • 하세요

    My hype for this game is through the roof. I’m usually never sold from screenshots from a brand new series (mechanics in this case) but it’s got my wallet on the edge of its seat.

    Yeah my wallet has a chair.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    “you’ll need to study his patterns and take advantage of openings to land some hits.” Key statement…really sounds like a hunting game and not an auto-attack fest.

    • SlickRoach

      All the more reason to be hyped. Day one buy, dare I say.

    • Hau To

      This is sounding good indeed.

  • Kornelious

    So it’s really starting to look more like a Monster Hunter since it doesn’t seem like there will be an auto-attack feature….Which is Awesome! :D

  • Skeledon

    I’m really looking forward to this. I missed out on Crystal Chronicles on the Gamecube since each person needed a GBA to play and I didn’t have money back then. This is sort of the new CC, right?

  • Vash bane

    so its hunting game right? if so then ifrit’s gear…will be my target XD
