While World of Final Fantasy is due to release this year, on both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, those eager for more information on the game have had to remain patient.
Thankfully, Square Enix has finally gotten around to updating its official Japanese website with new info and images. New info and images which you’ll find kindly embedded below.
■ Network and Battles
You can have network battles in the “Arena.” Bring out and stack the Mirages you’re most proud of against friends online.
■ Final Fantasy Legend Characters
Squall (voiced by Hideo Ishikawa)
A faithful soldier on a mission who belongs to an organization called “Seed.” He wields a special weapon known as a “Gunblade.” Since he’s been training with Lightning and Cloud, he’s always beat up.
Quistis Trepe (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro)
An officer of the “Seed” organization. As management, she is often busy and doesn’t get much actual experience. There seems to be a rumor that she loves card games.
Chocolatte (voiced by Seiko Ueda)
In the world of Grymoire is an item saleswoman named Chocolatte who appears in unexpected places anytime and anywhere.
From the place where the protagonists live, “Nine Woodshill,” players will travel to the mysterious world of Grymoire. In Grymoire, starting from Corneria and Saronia, you’ll travel to a lot of places. There are fields for every season in the land of Grymoire.
■ Befriending Mirages
To capture a Mirage, you must meet the necessary requirements for each. There are special conditions, such as using a “Specific Item.”
If you meet the requirements to capture a Mirage, they’ll start to glow as an indication.
By Gem-ifying the shining Mirage, it is possible to befriend them.
You can freely name the Mirages you befriend.
A powerful Mirage lurks in the “Dark Pastel,” and acts as a chance to obtain a rare Mirage.
■ Mirage Board / Transformation
Using the Mirage Board, it’s possible to teach new abilities and raise the stats of the Mirages you’ve befriended. Various boxes are lined up representing said upgrades are lined up across the Mirage Board for each Mirage. Each costs Skill Points to unlock. Some blocks cannot be unlocked unless you’ve met specific requirements. You’ll acquire Skill Points by leveling up your Mirages.
Mirages you take along with you and keep in your battle reserve will also receive experience points.
On the Mirage Board, there are also blocks for transforming Mirages into more powerful forms. When you transform, each ability you’ve previously unlocked can be inherited by the new form. However, exclusive abilities do not carry over. It’s also possible to de-transform.
What do you make of all this new info? Excited for World of Final Fantasy to release this year?
