The game focuses on co-op play with friends (up to four players through the 3DS system’s wireless functionality) and utilizes a refined party system allowing players to take on over 20 new and familiar jobs—including the Knight, Monk, Black Mage, and White Mage—to defeat monsters and recruit them for battle. Players will be able to summon eidolons like Ifrit and Bahamut, as well as transform into legendary characters from the Final Fantasy series via the “Trance” feature.
The story is as follows:
The world is on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals, the planet’s chief source of power. Players must band together to form an elite squad of Explorers on an island rich in crystals, braving hordes of monsters in hopes of conquering a newly discovered Grand Crystal – every Explorer’s dream.
