World of Final Fantasy is a role-playing game for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita aimed at a younger gaming audience and being developed as a way to bring children into the series who are more drawn to cutesy and fantasy-looking art styles. With World of Final Fantasy, the Final Fantasy series celebrates its 30th anniversary.
World of Final Fantasy is set in the land of Grymoire. The two main characters—Lann and his older twin sister Reynn—venture into the world to battle and befriend monsters and allies pulled from previous Final Fantasy games, including spin-off titles like Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.
One can change the statures of the player characters from regular size to a miniature-like height where they can ride monsters. Besides familiar Final Fantasy creatures, such as the Behemoth or the Magitek Armor serving as support allies, heroes from previous Final Fantasy games, like the Warrior of Light and Cloud Strife, can be used as summons.
World of Final Fantasy is a traditional RPG with an Active Time Battle system. Players can input commands or go for a more retro-esque Final Fantasy command system during battles. There will be both random encounters and story-based battles. After collecting monsters, players can stack them on top of one another for more powerful attacks. "Stacks" can be two or three monsters high, and the monsters used determine the kind of attack and its effectiveness. For example, stacking three monsters with the Fire ability creates a Firaga spell.
World of Final Fantasy has two "worlds", one for normal-sized characters and one for miniature characters. Reynn and Lann have come from the full-sized Jiant world to the miniature Lilikin world to befriend and battle its monsters. The sizes affect stats and abilities and there will be overworld events the player can only do in a certain size.
- Reynn and Lann - Twin siblings who lose their memories and get transported into the mystical world of Grymoire.
- Tama - Lann and Reynn's travel companion.
Many characters from the Final Fantasy series, including spin-offs, appear in the game helping Lann and Reynn throughout their journey. However, these incarnations aren't directly from their original world, but are inhabitants of Grymoire. As a result, while several characters appear from their own series, not all of them directly meet or know each other, as they are considered individual denizens of Grymoire. A number of these characters are "Champions", and can be summoned in battle through their unique Champion Medals that are acquired throughout the story.

Masashi Hamauzu, one of the composers of Final Fantasy X: Original Soundtrack and the composer of the Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- Original Soundtrack and Final Fantasy XIII: Original Soundtrack, composed the music for World of Final Fantasy. The opening theme, "Innocent²", was written by Square Enix's Ryo Yamazaki, and performed by Japanese singer Aoi Mizu, also known by her stagename Mizuki. The ending theme, "World Parade", was written by Ryo Shirasawa of Noisycroak. It was sung by Kana Hanazawa, Eri Kitamura, and Ayana Taketatsu, the respective voice actresses of Kuro, Tama and the character Serafie.
When Square Enix realized very few children or the younger audience play Final Fantasy, the executive producer for Final Fantasy, Shinji Hashimoto, approached Hiroki Chiba asking what they could do to introduce the series to a younger audience. This became the game's original concept. Art designer Yasuhisa Izumisawa, who had worked on Crystal Chronicles games, created chibi (two-head length) characters that were showed to Hashimoto and Tetsuya Nomura. It was decided this could be used to potentially create a new Final Fantasy IP that would appeal to a new audience.
World of Final Fantasy is an adventure experienced through the eyes of the protagonists. The team wanted to ensure that there would be scenes common with the Final Fantasy series to grab players and pull them into the narrative emotionally.
The game was released in North America, Japan and Europe on October 25th, 27th and 28th respectively. Alongside the standard edition a Day 1 Edition, a Limited Edition, and a Collector's Edition was released. The Day 1 Edition included the game, downloadable Japanese voiceover, an exclusive Sephiroth summon, and three Mirages: Red Bonnetberry, White Chocobo, and Glow Moogle. Pre-ordering this version from the PlayStation Store also gave a Cactuar Johnny mirage, a set of Crimson Armor, and a PS4 theme. The Limited Edition included the Day 1 digital content, as well as a 24-page artbook. The Collector's Edition is only available from the Square Enix Online Store and it includes the Day 1 digital content, as well as an 80 page artbook, a copy of the game's original soundtrack, a pop-up book depicting scenes from the game, and a set of three mini figures of Cloud, Squall, and Lightning.

- Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy XII, and Final Fantasy XIV are the only main game series to not have any Lilikin inhabitants in Grymoire.
- In one episode of Captain N: The Game Master, due to not having an official name for the Final Fantasy world during the Nintendo era of the original's game release, the creator/writers of the show referred to it as the "World of Final Fantasy," named after the game. It is described as being a medieval world.
- Tifa, Rikku and Lightning all wear the default outfits from their most recently released titles, but are the same age as they were in their original respective games.
