World

World of Final Fantasy is a role-playing game for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. It celebrates the Final Fantasy series's thirtieth anniversary and aims to attract a younger audience with its light tone and stylized graphics.[1]

Set in the land of Grymoire, World of Final Fantasy chronicles the adventures of Lann and Reynn, twin siblings who must tame monsters and befriend characters from other Final Fantasy games to reclaim their lost memories.[2]

GameplayEdit

WoFF-Chibi-Battle

A battle.

Players determine the actions of Lann, Reynn, and a series of tamable monsters called "Mirages." They explore a variety of locations and use the Mirages in their arsenal to navigate the environment, clear obstacles, or reach hidden treasure. Players can choose to play as Lilikins (small, "chibi" versions of Lann and Reynn) or Jiants (their regular versions), and they can switch between these forms at any time, so long as they are outside battle.

Battles are turn-based. Lann and Reynn team up with their Mirages to form "stacks," which determine the party's stats and usable abilities. They can be toppled by the enemy, resulting in a brief stun period, or manually separated by the player without penalty. Foes sometimes create stacks when encountered, as well.

While Lann and Reynn's primary goal is to collect as many Mirages as possible, they can also accept sidequests to collect additional rewards. As they progress on their journey, the twins are joined by Mega Mirages and Champions, powerful allies that can be called upon to assist them when the necessary conditions have been met.

Lann and Reynn, the main protagonists.

Playable charactersEdit

There are two playable characters who are controlled during battle and can be freely switched between on the field.

  • Lann - A brash, head-strong and impulsive boy who tends to allow his pride and his guts get the better of his instinct. Though he appears to be somewhat slow-witted, he frequently shows flashes of wisdom or maturity. He is loyal to his sister and to his family above all else.
  • Reynn - A level-headed girl who is frequently troubled by the consequences of the actions wrought by she and her twin brother. Despite her misgivings, she nonetheless continues forward with the execution of the Crimson Prophesy, unable to determine an alternate course of action.

Supporting charactersEdit

Lann and Reynn encounter many unique individuals on their journey through Grymoire. They are characters from the Final Fantasy series, save for one.

The opening theme, "Innocent²," is written by Ryo Yamazaki and performed by Aoi Mizu, a Japanese singer also known as "Mizuki." The game's ending theme, "World Parade," is written by Ryo Shirasawa of Noisycroak. It is sung by Kana Hanazawa, Eri Kitamura, and Ayana Taketatsu, who voice Enna Kros, Tama, and Serafie in Japan, respectively.

DevelopmentEdit

Realizing few children play Final Fantasy, executive producer Shinji Hashimoto approached Hiroki Chiba to fix this. World of Final Fantasy was subsequently born, and art designer Yasuhisa Izumisawa created stylized characters for use in the project.[1]

It was revealed World of Final Fantasy is experienced through its protagonists' eyes, thus scenes were added to the game that would grab players' attention and invest them in it emotionally.[1]
