Final Fantasy Explorers director Atsushi Hashimoto and project manager Takahiro Abe recently spoke to Famitsu about the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game. Hashimoto describes the game as an action RPG Final Fantasy with multiplayer as a possibility, but he’s quick to note that the game is different from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. Here’s what they had to say about the game.
“To put it simply, it’s an action RPG Final Fantasy with multiplayer as a possibility,”
“When you think about a Final Fantasy series with multiplayer compatibility, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles comes to mind,”
“However, this game is a different from Crystal Chronicles, as it heavily focuses on multiplayer elements as a multiplayer online-type game that connects through local and internet connectivity.”
“Actually, no, the ability acquisition isn’t really connected to the jobs,”
“I thought that the idea of ‘I want to keep playing as a White Mage, but I must change to Black Mage in order to learn offensive magic’ was a little troublesome for this game.”
“Therefore, you can keep playing as a White Mage and learn Black Mage abilities. This might be a little different from conventional Final Fantasy games, but I felt that this would be a good idea when considering the trends of recent players.”
