Launching in 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, World of Final Fantasy from Square Enix combines classic RPG gameplay mechanics with toy-like visuals as you lead a pair of twins through varied Final Fantasy worlds, capturing and raising familiar beasts.

In a set of new screenshots released today, Square Enix showed off heroes Reynn and Lann as they enter the world of Grymoire, as well as characters, locations, and monsters in the game, including Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII (as a Savior with the special ability Scene Drive) and the town of Cornelia from the original Final Fantasy.

Square Enix adds:

The new images showcase Mirages, powerful creatures that can turn the tide of any battle to aid Reynn and Lann. Players can take advantage of the game’s unique stacking mechanic to increase attack power and HP and unlock special abilities. Among the iconic Mirages are Shiva, Ramuh, Ifrit and Cerberus, ready to wipe out all enemies that oppose the duo. World of Final Fantasy also introduces train travel with the Cactuar Conductor for Reynn and Lann to journey across Grymoire.

They also talked about battles in World of Final Fantasy:

In battle, players can ride on and stack their Mirage monsters using the game’s “Stack-Stack” system. When you stack Mirage monsters on top of each other, their HP and attack power will add up and special abilities will become available for use. When you battle using them separated (not stacked on top of each other), you’ll recover AP faster, which is necessary for abilities, and avoid the risk of being taken out all at once.

You can check out all the screenshots in the gallery below.
