Following the latest World of Final Fantasy trailer we got to see at Tokyo Game Show 2015, Square Enix shared the latest information on the upcoming PlayStation 4 and Vita title, along with new screenshots.
Ena Kuro (CV: Kana Hanazawa):
One day, a mysterious woman by the name Ena Kuro appears in front of the protagonist Reynn and Lann.
“Perhaps there’s a way to bring back your memories.” are the words that she spoke, as she invites the two to the unknown world of Grymoire.
The above is a look at Cornelia, which made an appearance in the first Final Fantasy.
Near Cornelia is the “Nebula’s Cave.” It’s a dusky cave with something that awaits at the end.
Cornelia is the first town you’ll visit in Grymoire, and its’ where you’ll meet some of the Final Fantasy Legend Characters such as the Warrior of Light and Princess Sarah.
The above image shows the Warrior of Light witnessing his moment of “awakening.”
Lightning from the Final Fantasy XIII series will also make an appearance. Just like Warrior of Light and Cloud, she’ll appear as a “Saver” to help out in battle.
The above is a look at the Forest of Light where people are said to easily get lost, and the Icicle Valley dungeon that is covered in ice and slippery floors.
Here’s a certain town port. There are rumors about a pirate ship visiting this area.
You’ll get to travel comfortably in World of Final Fantasy via train.
Conductor Cactuar (CV: Shigeru Chiba):
Conductor Cactuar will also help you out during your journey as you travel by train. He says that he’s a “Mirage” (monsters and Guardian Beasts in World of Final Fantasy).
The above are the Guardian Beast Mirages in Shiva, Ramuh, and Ifrit. They’ll be there to help you out with their powers throughout your journey.
Ifrit uses fire-type attacks (shown using “Hellfire” above,) Shiva uses ice-type, and Ramuh specializes in electric-type attacks.
In exchange for all of your party’s Mirages, you’ll get to summon a “Mega Mirage,” which are basically extra powerful Mirages that fight by your side. The above is a look at the Mega Mirage Cerberus.
There are all kinds of different abilities you can use while stacked or separated in battle. For example, while stacked with allied Mirages, you’ll get more attack, HP, and access to special abilities. While un-stacked, recovering AP will be faster so you can use abilities more, and less risk of getting defeated in one shot. It brings more of a strategic element to the battle.
World of Final Fantasy will be released in 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita.
