When you start Final Fantasy Explorers your character won’t have a specific job like White Mage or Monk. Players will be Freelancers and can create equipment for their characters by defeating enemies or summoned monsters to get raw materials. Similar to other hunting games, acquiring rare materials is the key to getting better gear.
Swords, gloves, staves, rods, axes, spears, and bells are confirmed as weapons in Final Fantasy Explorers.
Square Enix added both local wireless and Internet multiplayer for the game. When you’re online you can talk to other players using a simple chat system which has preset text phrases.
Final Fantasy Explorers is slated for release this winter on Nintendo 3DS.
