Final Fantasy Explorers is an unusual sort of Final Fantasy game. More like Monster Hunter or Phantasy Star, players send their characters running around an island in search of crystals, in particular the Grand Crystal. Since there’s a group of people, that means everyone takes on their own job within the crew to assure success. Square Enix has confirmed 21 jobs will be available for people to enjoy at launch.
In Japan, 19 jobs were available in the base game, with the Blue Mage and Samurai jobs available as DLC. For its worldwide release, all 21 jobs will be included in Final Fantasy Explorers at launch. In game, switching jobs is as simple as bringing up the main menu in Libertas Town, the hub, and choosing jobs.
There are players’ job options for their Final Fantasy Explorers characters.
- Beast Master
- Black Mage
- Blue Mage
- Dark Knight
- Red Mage
- Time Mage
- White Mage
Final Fantasy Explorers will come to the Nintendo 3DS on January 26. The standard edition of the game will be $39.99.
