Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Explorers is a mashup of Final Fantasy mythology and the hunting game genre. Instead of dinosaurs, players fight Final Fantasy summon monsters and can temporarily transform into heroes like Lightning or Cloud. While you can play Final Fantasy Explorers solo with a(n ineffective) monster partner, it feels like Final Fantasy Explorers is designed with multiplayer in mind first. In Japan, the game is also bundled with a new version of Final Fantasy with stereoscopic 3D graphics.
Chaos;Child is another game to keep an eye out for since it’s one of the rare Japanese Xbox One exclusives. Microsoft’s console has had a difficult time finding an audience in Japan, but Chaos;Child and Psycho Pass, both developed by 5pb, were some of the more anticipated Xbox One games in Japan. Also, Godzilla comes out in Japan, but only for PlayStation 3. Bandai Namco Games will release the game on PS3 and PS4 in the West.
Aksys will release Guilty Gear Xrd Sign in North America in stores and on PlayStation Network tomorrow. The limited edition is delayed just a few days to December 23, 2014.
