Square Enix just announced that Final Fantasy Explorers, their action RPG title that has some Monster Hunter-like elements for the Nintendo 3DS, will release in North America and Europe this January.
Final Fantasy Explorers focuses on cooperative play with friends and utilizes a refined party system allowing Explorers to master over 20 new and familiar jobs—including Knight, Monk, Black Mage and White Mage—to defeat the realm’s mightiest monsters and even recruit them for battle.
Players will have the ability to call upon the powers of eidolons like Ifrit and Bahamut, as well as transform into other legendary characters from the Final Fantasy series via the Trance feature.
Here’s a bit on the game’s story:
The world is on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals, the planet’s chief source of power. Players must band together to form an elite squad of Explorers on an island rich in crystals, braving hordes of monsters in hopes of conquering a newly discovered Grand Crystal – every Explorer’s dream.
Final Fantasy Explorers will release in North America on January 26th and in Europe on January 29, 2016 for Nintendo 3DS.
