Worship Piplup or it will peck your eyes out
The oft-forgotten World of Final Fantasy was announced at last year's Sony E3 conference and was cruelly buried by the FFVII Remake announcement juggernaut that swiftly followed. But Square Enix haven't forgotten about this charming chibi-based spinoff title, because we now have an official release date for it. North America is first with the 25th of October. Japan sees it on the 27th, followed by Europe on the 28th. All territories will have both the PS4 and PS Vita releases.
What is this game about, I hear you ask? I am glad you asked. In the briefest way I can describe it, your two human characters find their way inside the magical land of Grymoire, which is populated by its cute chibi denizens, from monsters to familiar old Final Fantasy faces alike. Prepare to bump into the likes of chibi Cloud, Quistis, Yuna, Vivi, Lightning and among others as players journey across the land, collecting monsters on the way. The battle system is reminiscent of the more traditional ATB-based battle system of yore, which is the perfect sweetener for more classically minded players who have just got off the Final Fantasy XV action-RPG train.
Tell you what, let's have Square-Enix themselves explain what this game is about:
In World of Final Fantasy, players lead a pair of twins, Reynn and Lann, through the land of Grymoire on a search to rediscover their lost memories. Throughout their adventure, players will collect, raise and battle adorable beings of classic Final Fnatasy lore, including cactuar, chocobo® and behemoth, to create customizable, strategic tower combinations to take on the most challenging of opponents.
Should you wish to pre-order the Day One edition of the game, your reward will be the ability Sephiroth to bring forth as a summon in battle. Someone has to slay these fair maidens. They should watch their backs.
Naturally there is also a trailer.
