We’re seeing more of the main Final Fantasy games on PC these days, and a fair number of the strange spin-offs and side-games too. Square Enix today announced that the next round our way will be World of Final Fantasy, a spin-off which is a bit like Pokémon except you collect cute versions of FF characters and stack them on each others’ heads. Yup. Initially released on PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2016, it’ll hit PC in November. And it looks a little something like this:
See? Cute versions of Final Fantasy characters and enemies from across the series, captured, stacked on your head, and used as weapons. Is a chibi Cloud Strife you’ve captured still classified as a person and a soldier or would it be some sort of… military animal? And more importantly: can I breed them?
The PC release will come with several bonus DLC characters included, such as Sephiroth, a Glow Moogle, and other things I am broadly aware of through cultural osmosis but am hazy on the specifics of. Hey, I’ve never properly played a Final Fantasy before but you bet I’ll join the anime boyband road trip that is Final Fantasy XV when it comes to PC in 2018.
