Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark
Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark is perhaps the closest thing to a modern Final Fantasy Tactics that you can get, at least until Project Triangle Strategy releases sometime in 2022.
What will stand out as similar to Final Fantasy Tactics right away is the gameplay and the class-system. If a complex class system with lots of different combinations and possible strategies intrigues you, then Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark is a perfect fit.
There are over 20 different classes in Fell Seal that are unlocked just as they were in Final Fantasy Tactics, by leveling up different combinations of classes that then unlock more specialized and/or hybrid classes.
You have your standard fare classes like Ranger, Wizard, and Knight, but there are also some more creative ones like Gambler, Gadgeteer, and Fellblade. This is all in addition to a monster party member who functions as a Blue Mage of sorts and is able to copy and play as enemy jobs as well to add to the strategy.
Now don’t go into Fell Seal expecting a tale as epic as Final Fantasy Tactics’, or what we’re hoping to get from Project Triangle Strategy. The story is serviceable but isn’t an all-time great, and the music isn’t as memorable as that in Final Fantasy Tactics or Octopath Traveler.
That said, from a nuts and bolts gameplay perspective, Fell Seal is absolutely worth a try while you’re waiting for Project Triangle Strategy on Switch.
