The adorable World of Final Fantasy is just a few weeks out, but for those not quite sold on the title, a demo is slated for release next week.
The demo will hit PS4 and PS Vita on October 17. It will feature some exploration and combat from the game, giving players a brief taste of the full experience. Completing the demo grants you access to the Magitek Armor P in the full game.
World of Final Fantasy is about twins Lann and Reynn as they enter the mysterious world of Grymoire. Upon entering the fantastical new world they realize that they are the only ones who are normal size. Everyone else is represented in a big-headed chibi style. The adorable world just happens to be home to the heroes of the past 14 Final Fantasy games.
The adorable world just happens to be home to the heroes of the past 14 Final Fantasy games. So you’ll come face to face with the likes of Cloud, Squall, and Lightning as they waddle across the battlefield, slashing apart classic enemies like Cactuar and Behemoth. It’s a love letter to the series with a brand new plot mixed in.
Lann and Reynn can traverse Grymoire using two unique forms: Lilikin, making them fit in with the chibi heroes, and Jiant, returning them to normal height. Combat is also traditional Final Fantasy fair with a few new wrinkles added in. You can befriend and recruit different creatures.
