Square Enix's totally mysterious
teaser site has revealed -- surprise!
-- Four Warriors of Light: Final Fantasy Gaiden
, only a few days after Jump
revealed it. The site
offers a bit more detail about the game than we knew -- most importantly, it confirms that the Four Warriors of Light
, described as a "newly retold classic," is designed for play by up to four people.
Like the last couple of Final Fantasy
remakes on DS, Four Warriors of Light
is being developed by Matrix Software. It features a new implementation of the standard Final Fantasy
"job system," called the Crown System, which lets players switch jobs whenever desired. That sounds like the Dress Sphere system from the maligned Final Fantasy X-2.
A statement from producer Tomoya Asano on the site, as translated by Andriasang
, indicates the team's hope to deliver a game with "the charms of the classic RPG era before RPGs became JRPGs."
