Final Fantasy Explorers - 3DS 1/26/16





http://na.square-enix.com/us/games/f...tasy-explorers

Story

The world is at war over the greatest source of power in the world, the Grand Crystal. Players must band together to form an elite squad of Explorers, who venture out to collect pieces of the Grand Crystal to provide energy for the planet while fighting off hordes of monsters.

Description

FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS focuses on cooperative play with friends, utilizing a refined party system allowing Explorers to master over 20 jobs, each offering unique ways to defeat or even recruit the realm’s mightiest monsters. Players will have the ability to call upon the powers of eidolons like Ifrit and Bahamut, as well as to transform into legendary characters from the FINAL FANTASY series via the Trance ability. Multiplayer functionality is enabled through the Nintendo 3DS wireless communication.
Anyone else picking this up tomorrow? I've been waiting for its release for a while but at the same time, trying to not learn too much about it before the launch. Can't wait to dive in and check out the different classes.

Doesn't seem to be much interest on this site but I'll post some quick impressions.

As mentioned above, I didn't know much about the game going in. Not at all what I was really expecting but I'm enjoying it so far. Definitely not a standard FF game. It's basically Monster Hunter with a FF skin over it. Very grindy and next to no story (so far). You just adventure out from the same home point to do missions. I can't say I'd recommend this for someone looking for a standard jrpg or FF game.

Oh, and one thing I thought was very strange. This game doesn't support 3D at all. First 3DS game I've seen like that.

This just doesn't seem interesting at all. I can't imagine it will sell that well in North America.

I don't think even Monster Hunter sells well here, does it?

Not to my knowledge. It's already starting to feel stale. Whenever you get a piece of gear or monster to join you, you have to grind the same areas over and over to level them up. I can see it being fun co-op, which I'm going to try but it's pretty bland solo.

Re: Final Fantasy Explorers - 3DS 1/26/16

Finished up the "story" last night. It's only about half the game. Story ends at 5 star missions, the game has up to 10 star. But I'm guessing that a lot of those are the same fights but with options it has like double HP or attack power. You can turn any of those on yourself but some missions have them as requirements.

Not sure how far into the post-game I'll get but I've enjoyed what I played. Even more fun when I was able to team up with some friends.
