In the realm of the completely unexpected, a new localization announcement appears! Final Fantasy Explorers, the blend of Monster Hunter and Final Fantasy, is coming West early next year! It“ll hit the United States on January 26th, 2016, then Europe on January 29th, 2016. Square-Enix have remained utterly silent regarding the game“s fate outside of Japan until now. Reception had been mild, and there was certainly nothing at E3. Seems â€œnever say neverâ€ is indeed a sentiment that can be embraced when it comes to Square-Enix.
The game“s story details a world on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals. Players (in co-operative, Monster Hunter-styled gameplay unique to the series, so far) have to band together in search of crystals, defeating monsters and hopefully discovering the Grand Crystal along the way. And hey, if the announcement trailer below isn“t enough for you, I actually spoke at length about the Japanese demo of the game a long way back.
Will you be giving Final Fantasy Explorers a try next year? Be sure to let us know!
