First-print copies of Final Fantasy Explorers in Japan will feature a special quest where you can get Final Fantasy III’s Onion Knight equipment. Additionally, Square Enix revealed a second bonus for first-print buyers of the game. (Thanks, Famitsu)
Final Fantasy Explorers’ release date of December 18, 2014 just happens to fall on the anniversary of the very first Final Fantasy game. To commemorate the occasion, the upcoming 3DS game will include a download code for the first Final Fantasy game as part of its second first print bonus.
This marks the debut of the first Final Fantasy for Nintendo 3DS. As the screenshots show, it features remastered art (probably from a previous re-release of the game), and can also be played in 3D.
For players who won’t be getting Final Fantasy Explorers, the 3DS version of Final Fantasy 1 will be available to purchase separate via the Nintendo 3DS eShop in January 2015.
A price has yet to be announced for Final Fantasy’s 3DS release.
The above is another look at the 4-piece Onion Knight set from Final Fantasy III as part of the game’s first print bonus #1. It’s set consists of a sword, helmet, armor, and legs. Players will need to acquire all the materials needed to make the set.
In addition to the Onion Knight gear, Final Fantasy Explorer will bring back various heroes from past games of the series, and we recently got a first look at Squall from Final Fantasy VIII, Terra from Final Fantasy VI, and Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII.
Final Fantasy Explorers is slated for release in Japan on December 18, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS.
