It was previously revealed that World of Final Fantasy will bring back characters like Snow Villiers from Final Fantasy XIII, Rydia from Final Fantasy IV, and Tifa from Final Fantasy VII. According to Square Enix, Snow will have a cooperative attack with the summon Shiva called Ruler Fist, and he is described as a nice guy who generally lends a helping hand to those who need it. Tifa will also have a powerful attack that allows her to punch the ground and and deal physical damage to enemies and bypass their defenses completely.
It was also revealed that various locales from Final Fantasy VII will be available for exploration in the game. This includes the town of Nibelheim and Mako Reactor 0. More interestingly, we also got some details on the Heart Quests of the game, which were described by Square Enix as special quests that series fans will not want to miss out on.
‘During Heart Quests, you’ll witness the sub stories of Final Fantasy legend characters while helping them out. Stars represent their degree of difficulty, and clearing the quests may earn you rewards. To accept quests, you’ll need special items called “Alma Gems.”
These quests will contain stories that both people familiar and not familiar with the Final Fantasy series can enjoy. There is some unexpected dialogue between characters, as well.’
World of Final Fantasy is set to be released for the PS4 and PS Vita on October 25 in North America.
