Job System– So many options! Dark Knight, Beast Master, Samurai… Look at all the Mages! I’ll master them all. Which will you choose?
Multiplayer! I’ve been devoted to the 3DS since launch ( I’ve transferred my little Ambassador Certificate to every new generation of the system because sentimental nerd). The biggest issue I’ve had with the system has always been the lack of multiplayer games in the library. It’s a portable system! It was made for travel, meet ups and kicking real human ass while watching defeat darken the eyes of my opponents.
Old Friends– Costumes let me play as my angsty teen crushes, Cloud and Squall. Terra! Plus Yuna. Tifa and Aerith. No Rikku, but maybe someday? Lightning, who I’m not entirely familiar with since I got bored about an hour into FFXIII, but it’s pretty exciting to see so many of my favorite female characters in one place. Choosing a costume might be harder than sticking with a job class…
New Summons (0r Aeons or Eidolons or Guardian Forces)- Good to see all the classics here. Then there’s Amaterasu and Dryad. The latter seems to be the Aeon version of a Marlboro, inflicting a barrage of status ailments, while the former possesses 7 floating flaming swords and reminds me of the 7 of swords which ironically represents wit and diplomacy over force.
Training monsters– You can round out your party with monsters. Has this ever happened in a Final Fantasy before? I can’t wait to see what kinds of ridiculous and incredible teams we can build!
Are you getting Final Fantasy Explorers? What are you looking forward to?
