This new gameplay video of Final Fantasy Explorers has me praying to the ghost of Gunpei Yokoi that Square Enix will localize this game to the U.S.
The gameplay looks to be somewhat like the Monster Hunter series and that is a good thing. The video showcases the warrior, black mage, and monk classes, and confirms that some old friends/enemies are returning -- like Ifrit!
Hopefully the move Square Enix has made with Final Fantasy Type-0 indicates that it's gaining interest in taking more chances in the western market and will release some of their more unique and fun Final Fantasy side-games here instead of just terrible cell phone ports.
If you can't wait what may be three or more years to see if this game is going to be localized, you can import it from Japan after it releases Decemeber 18, 2014.
