Final Fantasy Explorers Discussion

Recommended Posts

I keep forgetting about this game... which is probably not a good thing. Not as interested now, but maybe when release time comes I'll check out the reviews.

 

There'll be a demo.

I can't find anything online about that. Is it for real? I need to know!

 

Yes, it's straight from Square Enix North America. They haven't done a press release for the collector's edition just yet. Expect one next week.

Every single one of them before VII was rated E or E10+. Don't see why this is such an odd thing.

The Australian distributor for Square Enix video games has re-confirmed the Final Fantasy Explorers collector's edition is exclusive to Square Enix's Online Store. And yes, that means it's also exclusive to North America & Europe.

Square Enix has confirmed in-game content will be exclusive to the collector's edition of Final Fantasy Explorers which is also exclusive to the online store which can only be purchased through in North America & Europe.

 

In other words, multiple countries can not access the content in literally any way. Not even DLC.

 

 

I can further confirm now that the game will NOT be available in German, Italian or Spanish. They won't be releasing the 3DS port of FF1 either.

Meghan Sullivan has had some incredibly dodgy reviews (*cough* Steins;Gate *cough*) for IGN and that review is no different. Her tone throughout it is grating to listen to. I'm glad the dislike bar is visible on that video. The girl really can't review and she's not the only one at IGN either.

Her review for X/X-2 HD was great imo but I'm bias there. But I agree her review here was bad.
