Red Mage And Machinist Jobs Join Final Fantasy Explorers


Japan’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine reveals two new jobs for Final Fantasy Explorers—the Machinist and the Red Mage. (Thanks, @kazu4281)


The Machinist can gun enemies down with short waiting times between attacks and rapid-fire attacks, while the Red Mage uses both swords and magic. They can cast spells quickly, thanks to their Fast Cast ability.


Meanwhile, the game also has two new Summons, that will serve as bosses. Odin is back in Explorers, while Amaterasu, who hasn’t been seen before, is debuting in this game as well.


Final Fantasy Explorers will be released December 18th in Japan.
