The Dragoon, Black Mage, Monk and Ninja job classes are just some of the 21 different jobs SQUARE ENIX offers for adventurers to learn and master in FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS to defeat the realm’s mightiest monsters. This upcoming action-RPG allows adventurers to fly solo or band together with up to three friends to gather the crystals scattered throughout the world.
The jobs system has evolved over the years into a beloved part of the FINAL FANTASY series, and is an integral part of this game. Each of the 21 jobs possess their own unique abilities and skillsets, allowing players a tactical edge when switching, combining and leveling between jobs, and creating endless amounts of character customization for all skill levels. Additionally, the North American release will include the specialized Blue Mage and Samurai jobs, which were previously only available as DLC in Japan.
The world is on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals, the planet’s chief source of power. Players must band together to form an elite squad of Explorers on an island rich in crystals, braving hordes of monsters in hopes of conquering a newly discovered Grand Crystal – every Explorer’s dream.
Along with confirming the details about Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 found in a recent Famitsu article, Square Enix has also released new screenshots of the title’s gameplay. The game will eventually be released to the Nintendo 3DS, however it’s currently still in development. You can check out the screenshots below:
Japanese publication Dengeki PlayStation recently spoke to a number of developers to find out which video game franchises they would love to work on if they were ever given the chance. Interestingly, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata said that The Legend of Zelda franchise is something he would love to be able to work on. It will most likely never ever happen, but it would certainly be interesting to see Square Enix’s vision for the franchise using their state of the art graphics engine.
“The Legend of Zelda series. I’m not quite sure why myself, but a Zelda game made with the technology and know-how of Final Fantasy XV is the game I wish to create as of this moment.”
