What is World of Final Fantasy?
World of Final Fantasy will thrust our players into a cute chibi-style adventure, returning to its turn-based roots with a little twist, using the Active Time Battle system. Players will also have the chance to “imprism” monsters to help aid in your battles.
When you “imprism” a monster you will have a variety of things you can do. You can train them and evolve them to make them stronger and more resilient in battles. You can also train them to be mounts to make exploration and travel easier. There are many interesting things you can do. Check out this video to see just how it works.
The demo will be available starting October 17 and will have you playing as Reynn and Lann in their Lilikin and Jiant forms. You will also have the opportunity to meet different mirages and even encounter some Final Fantasy favorites such as Cloud, Lighting, and Squall.
If you manage to complete the demo you will be awarded with the opportunity to battle and capture Magitek Armor P at the coliseum once the full version of the game is released.
World of Final Fantasy releases on October 25 for PS4 and Vita! If you’re planning on pre-ordering I recommend you head on over to Amazon and check out the Limited Edition which comes with special packaging, a 24-page Artbook, and extra digital content.
