During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, we learned that Final Fantasy Explorers, a game that’s been out for almost a year in Japan, is getting an American release on 3DS. The release date is set for January 26, 2016, and the game will include all of the previously released Japanese DLC for free. There’s also a special Collector’s Edition coming that will include a 32-page artbook, 20 music tracks, a 3DS hard case, and unlockable in-game quests for legendary weapons.
Final Fantasy Explorers takes place on an island covered in mystical crystals and guarded by eidolons. Players can learn more than 20 different jobs, and then switch jobs and transfer skills. If you use the “Trance” ability, you can play as characters from other Final Fantasy games. The game supports local and online “MMO-style” multiplayer for up to four players, but if you don’t have a group of four friends, empty slots can be filled in by trained monsters.
The game is rated E10+ for Alcohol Reference, Fantasy Violence, and Mild Suggestive Themes.
