According to reports from Siliconera, more details have been revealed in Shonen Jump on Square Enix’s newest title for the 3DS, Final Fantasy Explorers. It will be an action-RPG set in the Crystal Chronicles series, with extensive single and local multiplayer options. Similar to the gameplay of the Monster Hunter series, in Explorers players will join together with friends to battle giant summons while on their quest for crystals.
In true Final Fantasy fashion, there will be a range of job roles and weapons for player to choose from to suit their combat style. So far, artwork has been revealed by Square Enix for four of these classes – Knight, Monk, White Mage and Black Mage – which you can see below.
Still in development, Final Fantasy Explorers is yet to earn itself a release date in Japan, with not even a hint as to whether it will reach Western shores. However, it will no doubt be one to watch for all JRPG enthusiasts.
